Last Minute Cruise Deals – read this and don’t tell me you’re not tempted…

Thanks to writing about cruises for the family last week, they’ve been on my mind a bit. I admit it – I’ve gone from no-thank-you to sorely-tempted in one blog post. So I had a quick casual look at some cruise holiday deals (oh come on, we ALL do it. Bored for five minutes, cup of coffee in hand… before you know it you’re either nosily browsing Rightmove for a new million pound house, or planning your...

Planning the NEXT Adventure – Paris, I think.

So whilst we’re in the frantic last stages of planning our amazing Italian Road Trip (we leave in four days *gulp*), I admit my brain is already turning towards what’s next. Because I’ve got the bug now.

Cruising – would you go with children?

I’ll be honest – I’ve never really fancied going on a  cruise. I’m not sure why – I think it was the feeling that it was simply being locked in a hotel with all the guests for days ata time.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) in Dorset for our #GoProAdventures

When we were setting out our plans for our #GoProAdventures  there was one activity which Boy demanded, begged and pleaded for. Surfing. We tried it in Wales earlier this year, and he was utterly bitten by the surf bug, aching and aching to go and do it again. Sadly, our #GoProAdventures week coincided with a week totally lacking any kind of swell – standing up on a surf board wouldn’t have been any kind of a challenge,...

What The LittleStuff Family Did In The Brecon Beacons – Our 6 Day Plan.

As we were over on the west side of the national park this year, I thought we’d share the things we did as a bit of inspiration to anyone else visiting this summer… Day 1 – Walk to Llyn Y Fan Fach By the time we’d had  a lazy morning, then found a supermarket to stock up for the week we only had the afternoon left. So a quick and easy stroll was in order to stretch our legs – we opted for the lovely Llyn...

When LittleStuff had a cottage holiday in the Brecon Beacons – Llwyn-y-neuadd

If you’re looking for a peaceful and remote cottage for a family holiday filled with good old-fashioned fun, then this might be just the place for you. Just finding Llwyn-y-neuadd on a map is an adventure in itself, and when you see the track and think you’re nearly there – well, the adventure’s really just getting going. Because you need to navigate up the hill on an unmade ancient drover’s road...
