Badby Wood

Hudson and I headed for a walk to Badby Wood. Usually, on trips like this I keep Hudson in the pram and he isn’t a fan of walking but as these woods are so small I kept him out and I’m glad I did as it gave us the chance to wander off the main paths.

Outdoor Swimming Around Northamptonshire

Outdoor swimming around Northamptonshire was not something I had really considered until lockdown caused all the indoor pools to close. The fact that lockdown happened over spring and summer meant that we had to think of outdoor alternatives to some of our favourite ways to entertain the kids or get our own exercise.

Brixworth Country Park

Brixworth country park is full of areas to explore, with various walking tracks, cycling tracks and play equipment for all ages.


With some beautiful weather forecast, the boys, my Mum and I headed to the beach for the day. Worried that Hunstanton might be really busy I thought we would head to Wells-Next-The-Sea.

Days Out With The Kids In Northamptonshire This Summer

A list of ideas for days out with the kids in Northamptonshire this Summer. Including seeing flamingos, paddle boarding and outdoor cinema!

Woburn Safari Park

What makes this Park so special is the fact that they have the road safari. This is optional but I highly recommend it. When you arrive at the entrance you show your ticket and go straight into the park where the animals are. Many are free to roam and so can come right up to your car, others are behind a fence.
