North-East weekends away with your dog

The Northumberland coastline offers visitors some of the most breathtaking and idyllic scenery in the United Kingdom, while a few miles in land those who frequent here will be to tell you of the hustle and bustle of the city.

Direct London-Amsterdam Train, in under 4hrs, for £35? We Tried It.

When we saw that Eurostar had introduced a direct London-Amsterdam train, we just had to give it a go. It’s no secret that we’re big fans of train travel – with a husband who simply won’t fly, train travel is how Europe opened up to us for some fabulous kid-free short breaks (there are benefits to the small people growing into capable teenagers who can be left alone for a few days without burning the house (or...
