Lambing weekends at Wroxham Barns

Last year, when lockdown was lifted, one of our first days out was to Wroxham Barns and we all had an absolute blast. It was one of the places that Erin was the most looking forward to going again so as soon as they released their tickets for the lambing weekends I decided to plan a day out. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, you do have to book and pay for a ticket online and choose a time slot for your arrival. You cannot just turn up on the day and most of the days

Dippy’s Halloween Days At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD | Gifted tickets Living in Norfolk we are quite lucky that there are so many great places to go as a family. If ever we ask Erin where she would like to go for a day her answer is usually Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. We usually try to go in the summer when the weather is warmer but this time we braved October half term. As a non-driving family I always need to know how we are going to get to and from somewhere. Last summer there was a free Dino Bus running which sadly

A Trip Back In Time On The North Norfolk Railway

Although we live close to the Norfolk coast we tend to go to the same places most of the time. Cromer is our beach of choice mainly because it’s the closest and has a lot of nearby facilities for families such as toilets. However, a couple of weeks ago we stayed in Sheringham at YHA Sheringham, which was such a good base as a family. During our weekend we decided to do something really different and go on a journey on the North Norfolk Railway. This is unlike a regular train though as it’s a

A Roarsome Day Out At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD | Gifted tickets Last year we got to go to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure for the very first time in February half term and then again in the summer. It is one of those places we didn’t think about going to before due to the location being more suited to drivers. However, last summer they put on the Dino Bus, a free bus during the summer going to and from the park a few times over the course of the day and that made things so much easier for us. Sadly, the Dino Bus isn’t running this

A Day Of Fun At Wroxham Barns

Being a non-driving family has meant that there are places in Norfolk that we love to go for days out but usually can’t go because of transport issues. Wroxham Barns is one of those places. I always thought we couldn’t go because we don’t drive but recently I figured out that with the help of a train and then a taxi, it would be possible. Planning our day out was much easier than I thought it would be. Due to COVID-19, tickets must be booked for Wroxham Barns in advance and you cannot buy them

Summer At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD | Gifted tickets Somewhere I have always heard such great things about for a day out in Norfolk is Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. We first visited with Erin during February half term earlier this year but we had to cut our trip short as my friend’s son wasn’t very well. Erin has been asking to go back ever since but as a non-driving family it’s pretty hard to get to. This year, Roarr! have done something really fantastic and put on a free bus, the DinoBus, from Norwich during the summer holidays. For us as a

Discover Vikings At Norwich Castle This Summer

AD | Press event Living in North Norfolk nearer to the coast we sometimes forget how much there is to do in Norwich. On Monday we invited to a press event at Norwich Castle to discover their summer holiday activity for 2019, ‘The Legend Returns’. Our day started off with a really lovely breakfast of warm chocolate croissants and drinks while getting to chat to other bloggers that were also attending the event. We took this opportunity to grab a table with Chloe from Just The Three Of Us and her lovely children Mia and

February Half Term At Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure

AD – We received complimentary entry to Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. All opinions are our own.  Back when I moved to Norfolk in 2013 and started working at a soft play centre I heard so many things about Roarr! Dinosaur Adventure. At the time we didn’t have any children so it’s taken some time to getting around to visit. However, now that Erin is 3 and this week has been her first half term from nursery, it seemed like a great time to go and we planned to make a day of it with friends. We arrived
