AD | Gifted stay Up until recently I will hold my hands up and admit that I was a bit of a snob when it came to travelling and where we stayed. A couple of years ago if you’d have asked me to stay in a caravan or a hotel I probably would have laughed at you. However, I’ve really become more open minded about staying in different kinds of accommodation that aren’t just a hotel room with a private bathroom. I want Erin to experience all different kinds of travel so on a recent trip we stayed at YHA
After our break to Haven Caister-on-Sea last year we stayed in a prestige caravan after being upgraded. When we were booking our break for this year at Haven Seashore I immediately looked at the same kind of models as we were so happy with where we stayed previously. I thought that this way, we would at least kind of know what we were getting without any nasty surprises. Haven Seashore is a lot bigger than Caister-on-Sea and having looked at the map before our visit there was a few areas that I’d hoped our caravan would be in. That didn’t
AD | Press trip On our recent stay at Kelling Heath Holiday Park in North Norfolk we stayed in one of their two bedroom woodland lodges. Kelling Heath do offer other accommodation options such as camping and luxury holiday homes. We instantly liked the look of the lodges though due to us having stayed in something similar elsewhere before. As Erin still has naps while we’re away we wanted somewhere we could spread out and enjoy while we weren’t out exploring. Living area and kitchen Erin likes to spread out when we’re away, especially when we bring toys and things
AD | Gifted Experience John and I love to get away and this year we are trying to explore more of our local area. Somewhere that is only roughly an hour away by train is Ipswich and neither of us had ever been there before. Buyagift got in touch a little while back and offered us some experiences to try. We decided to go for a 2 night family break at a Novotel hotel and luckily, there was one in Ipswich. To book a Buyagift experience with a Novotel hotel you need to email. The booking system is a bit
AD | Gifted Experience Earlier this year Red Letter Days got in touch to see if we would like to try one of their experiences. Living in Norfolk and not being able to drive usually means that we’re not able to get to a lot of places but having been for afternoon tea and a massage last year, I knew of somewhere we could go. We decided to go with the Country House Escape for 2 at The Grove in Cromer. This particular experience is available Sunday to Friday, throughout the year, excluding summer holidays, Christmas and New Year period.
John’s birthday was a little over a week ago and I wanted to do something really special. Buy A Gift helped us out by sending us for an Overnight Family Break In London At A Novotel Hotel. We love going to London as a family as there is always so much for Erin to do and it means we get to spend some real quality time together. We have previously stayed at the Novotel London Blackfriars hotel and loved it so this time we wanted to stay somewhere different and chose to stay at the Waterloo branch instead. The Buy A Gift
A couple of weeks ago we went on our very first family holiday abroad to Majorca and we stayed at the FERGUS Style Pollensa Park SPA in Puerto Pollensa. Choosing a hotel online can be quite tricky as you never really know what to expect but luckily a few people I know have stayed here before and told me how nice it was. We booked our holiday through Jet2 but this hotel can be booked elsewhere as well. The Hotel From the airport was had a transfer which took us right to our hotel. On the way, we also stopped off at others
When I booked our holiday to Majorca we were initially supposed to fly out on the Sunday but things got changed and we ended up flying on the Monday instead. Our flight was at 9am so this meant us having to be at the airport pretty early in the morning. Living in Norfolk and not driving meant that this was pretty impossible so we knew that we would need to stay in a hotel the night before. Although there are plenty of options at Stansted Airport we chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express London – Stansted Airport Hotel. We
