Things To Remember When Planning A Summer Holiday

Planning a summer holiday can be a massive task, especially if you’re going away with children. We went on our first holiday abroad earlier in the year and there are some things I wish I had done to make the whole trip a lot easier and a lot less stressful. Choose Clothes Wisely When I packed for our holiday abroad this year I don’t think I did a very good job of it, which isn’t really like me at all. We ended up taking so many clothes for Erin, most of which she didn’t wear but not nearly enough for

The Toddler Who Is Obsessed With Holidays

As a child I never really went on many holidays. We had a couple of trips to Butlins and some camping trips but I didn’t go abroad until I was 18. I remember the first time I went on holiday on my own and absolutely loving discovering somewhere else. Luckily, I married a man who likes holidays and exploring just as much as I do. It doesn’t take much to persuade him when it comes to booking a holiday and he’s happy to go anywhere as long as we do it together. When Erin was born, due to us having

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

Our 4 Night Break At Haven Caister-on-Sea

Towards the end of last year John won an award at work which meant he got some vouchers to spend. We decided to put those vouchers towards the cost of a holiday at Haven in Caister-on-Sea. At the time of booking there was a half price offer on so we managed to get a Monday to Friday break for quite a bit less than £200. I had never stayed in a caravan before so I had absolutely no idea what to expect. Before our break we received an upgrade from a standard caravan to a Prestige model which meant our

What To Expect From An All Inclusive Holiday Package

At the age of 32 I had never been on an all inclusive holiday. I don’t know why but they had never really appealed to me before. I went through a crazy drinking phase before I was even legal to drink so by the time I was going on holidays I wasn’t interested in going somewhere to drink my money’s worth. When we booked our recent holiday to Majorca I wanted to not have to think about much while we were there so we splashed out and went all inclusive. However, I really didn’t know what to expect when we

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
