Free Activities For Children On A Haven Holiday

Earlier this year we went on our first ever Haven holiday to Caister-on-Sea in Norfolk. Something we were interested in was the different activities suitable for Erin and more importantly, the free activities. We got a great deal on our break and we didn’t want to spend too much money while we were there. As Erin hadn’t ever done anything like this on holiday before we didn’t want to pay for lots of activities she didn’t enjoy. So, I thought I’d share some of the free activities for children on a Haven holiday (please check they’re available at the site

How To Pack For A Haven Holiday When You Don’t Drive

Being a family that doesn’t drive means that some holiday destinations are quite hard for us to get to or it means we can’t take everything we would possibly need. You may have read some of our posts recently about our holiday to Haven in Caister-on-Sea and to get here, we had to take the bus. Luckily, we are able to get a bus 5 minutes from our house and it dropped us right outside Haven. If it had been further away, we might have struggled. As Haven is a self catering holiday park I thought I’d try to be

Haven Caister-on-Sea Prestige Caravan Review

When we originally booked our holiday to Haven in Caister-on-Sea we were supposed to have a standard caravan. However, we were lucky enough to be upgraded to a Prestige caravan and we ended up staying in Thurle 25. As soon as I opened the front door I was impressed. I don’t really know what I was expecting but having never stayed in a caravan before, I didn’t really know what I would be staying in. The whole caravan was so modern and beautifully decorated. I really loved the yellow and grey colour scheme and I actually would have had a

Planning Our Haven Holiday

In early December John won an award at work, which I was super proud of him for. With his award he also won £100 of vouchers which we could have used in loads of different places. We could have been sensible and bought the new iron that we need, or a new lawnmower but instead we did something even better… we booked a holiday. Mostly, the vouchers could be used in shops but somewhere else that accepted them was Haven. We already had a holiday to Majorca booked for April and Center Parcs in October but I have wanted to go

How To Add Luxury To A Family Holiday

Sometimes, when you think about family holidays your mind might instantly go to holiday parks, camping or cheap and cheerful beach holidays. When I was growing up we never really had many holidays but we did go camping a few times and we went to Butlins twice. In my mind, these are sort of stereotypical family holidays. However, there are so many ways that you can add some extra luxury to a family holiday and here are some ideas: Accommodation Upgrades When booking a holiday you generally have to choose what kind of accommodation you want to stay in and

5 Things To Do In Dubai For Families

You may have noticed that we have just come back from a holiday abroad but that doesn’t stop me thinking about where else I might like to go if I got the chance. It seems like holidays to Dubai in 2018 are quite popular so I’ve been looking in to what we could do there as a family. Here are some ideas: Kidzania I know we have a Kidzania in London but we haven’t had the chance to take Erin yet as she’s been too young each time we visited the city. However, Kidzania Dubai advertises being suitable for children aged 1

Flying With A Toddler For The First Time

Just a few short weeks ago we went on our first family holiday to Majorca. Having not been abroad with a child before we really didn’t know what to expect from Erin when it came to her first flight. I tried to prepare as much as possible but everything could have gone completely wrong and nothing I’d planned could have worked. Before our holiday we tried to tell Erin would would happen on a regular basis even if we thought she wouldn’t remember or wouldn’t understand. I don’t think Erin really understand until we got to the airport hotel the

Our First Family Holiday Abroad

It feels like this day has been a very long time coming. This morning John, Erin and I are flying to Palma ready for our first family holiday abroad to Puerto Pollensa, Majorca. I remember booking this holiday way back in March 2017 so we’ve actually had over a year to wait for it to happen. I like booking holidays head whenever I can because it’s good to be able to spread the cost if you need to. We went on holiday last year to Center Parcs in October but I have been dreaming of sun, a pool and the beach
