So last year, we visited a place we’d been meaning to go for ages – The Forbidden Corner in Leyburn. It’s very popular and you have to pre-book. We’d heard lots of good things about it, so set a date to go up there and make a weekend of it. The only tickets we could get were for a 1 pm entry. We weren’t sure this would give us enough time in the park but decided to take it anyway as finding spare days to get anywhere seems to be more effort these days! Did we enjoy it? I think so. I’m still not sure what to make of it, to be honest. Continue reading
Getting kids into golf with Online Golf #OGgetkidsintogolf
Thanks so much to Online Golf and Golphin for a fun afternoon in Manchester, learning how to play golf from golf pros. We have played golf before, of course. If you can count trying to putt around pirates or dinosaurs, and the odd windmill. If crazy golf doesn’t count, then no, we haven’t really played any proper golf. I’m not sure it’s something the girls are desperate to be too involved with, but we have a rule in this house, and that’s we should try anything new when we get the opportunity. So off we trotted to Manchester one sunny Saturday to get a little taste of proper golf from expert coaches and pro golfers. Continue reading
Last week, we were invited to go and try out the new Rock Up Hull, which is in St Stephen’s in Hull city centre.
Here’s what the deputy editor (aged 12) had to say about it……… Continue reading
With the school holidays approaching, you may be worried about the expense of keeping your children entertained. Never fear, Kids Days Out Reviews are here!
To help you through the days ahead, here are some ideas for family days out in Yorkshire, all of which are zero or low cost (for some you may have to pay for things like parking). Continue reading
In previous years, we have helped raise thousands of pounds for Comic Relief and Sport Relief as part of blogger collective Team Honk. In 2014, we were part of a national team which moved a baton from Land’s End to John O’Groats, and in 2015 we were part of the huge Danceathon at Wembley Arena. Team Honk have raised in excess of £80,000 since 2013. Continue reading
Better late than never! In October 2016, we made the trip over to Leeds to visit the Royal Armouries. It’s another great free day out, but not to suit everyone’s taste. I knew that not all my girls would enjoy this one, but I made them all go anyway. It’s character building, and we needed somewhere new to see which wasn’t too far away, indoors, and didn’t blow our budget. Continue reading
This week, we paid a visit to the newly opened Bugtopia, which is in Hornsea Freeport, in East Yorkshire.
The chief deputy editor (the 12 year old) explains more…….. Continue reading
It’s day six of the Christmas holidays now and while we’ve quite enjoyed a mix of chilling out and using the time to get Christmas stuff done, we thought it would be a good idea to get out today and do something fun. We decided to brave the cold and visit Pirate Adventure Golf in Hull. Continue reading
So on our second visit to Santa already this year, and this time it was Princes Quay in Hull. We’ve seen Santa at Princes Quay before, and I have to say that the offering gets better year on year. Continue reading
I know it’s still November but we’re feeling all Christmassy already here and are excited about the prospect of a snowy winter this year after a couple of dry years. When Chill Factor-e in Manchester invited us to go and try out their indoor Snow Park with a visit to Santa thrown in we jumped at the chance. Continue reading
