Newest Review: ... young children in the car and it can get too boring for them. The views on the scenic roads are wonderful to look at so we stopped for ice cream and sat outside eating it and watching the view. The weather wasn't brilliant, but we still went out every day. The main thing was it didn't rain. We visited Land's End in Penzance on a very windy day for August. I can remember crossing the ... more

We went to Cornwall for a week in August a few years ago. We stayed in St. Ives in a two bedroom bungalow on a camp site surrounded by woodland and fields. My children loved it there. They could play outside with other children staying there whilst we sat and relaxed. We drove to our destination. We left at six in the morning and stopped for breakfast onlong our way. Then we drove as long as we could to get there and then stopping a few times for a break. It was a long drive, especially when you have young children in the car and it can get too boring for them.

Just got back yesterday from another freebie from where I work. I work for Blakes Boats and because it's a brand new section we all had to test the boating holidays.

Although some people will call the boats a barge, apparently real narrowboating fans, don't like this word. We collected our boat from Wyvern Shipping Company based in Linslade/Leighton Buzzard. It had took us nearly 4 hours to get there from Lancashire, so we were ready for some chilling out time. We introduced oursleves from Blakes Boats and we were shown their massive ...

Having travelled around the country on numerous occasions, I have often found the need to find over night overnight accommodation. This can be a very hit and miss affair and the standard can sometimes disappoint. Hopefully this opinion will to point you in the right direction, should you need somewhere to stay in the UK. Travel Inns provide a good standard of rooms and services in this department and I would suggest them as your first port of call when travelling in the UK. I will use my most recent experience of this company as an example. But I would like to point out that the standard of Travel Inns is very much the same across the country. ...

For the past long weekend (Easter weekend) we went camping at a near by park. It was not far away in physical distance (about 40 minutes away). But a life time away, as far as a relaxing time. We cooked over the camp fire and paddled up the river in a canoe and took several short walks on nature trails in the park. Then we slept on an air mattress under the stars with sleeping bags for warmth. The weather was perfect. My husband and i really enjoyed watching our son, aged 3, discover so much about our beautiful world. ... Read the complete review
