Exploring the Ilfracombe Aquarium

Ilfracombe Aquarium We have recently spent a week on holiday with family in the Ilfracombe and North Devon area. Whilst there we decided to visit the Ilfracombe Aquarium, which is situated in the harbour of the pretty seaside town. Upon arriving Mini was given an activity quiz to complete, she had to spot knitted fish around the Aquarium to solve a puzzle. She enjoyed doing the trail and was able to write the letters herself, using the clipboard provided. She proudly exchanged the code word for a sticker at the end. Mini was also given a step to take around…

The Big Sheep (North Devon) Review

The Big Sheep, North Devon During our recent holiday to Ilfracombe we decided to take a trip to The Big Sheep attraction.

Our Motorhome Adventures in Weymouth

Motorhome Adventures in Weymouth We recently took a little trip away to explore Weymouth and the surrounding area. Although I have nothing at all against those who love the camping experience, I know that it’s never going to be something that I get excited about, I’m definitely a home comforts kind of girl. However, this year wanting to save some money, we decided to borrow my parents motorhome for some long weekends away to break me in gently to the outdoors life. We booked the Friday off work and set off early on our adventures, having had the motorhome the…
