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

A Day Trip To Redwings Horse Sanctuary

This Father’s Day just gone we didn’t really have any plans but my sister and her fiance wanted to go and do something so we decided on the Redwings Horse Sanctuary in Aylsham. None of us had ever been before but we’d had it on a list of things to do close by for a while now and none of us wanted to go too far. Redwings is only a 15-20 minute drive away for us so relatively easy to get to. The first thing to mention is that entry to Redwings Horse Sanctuary is free and that it is open

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

Rocking Pooling In West Runton

One of Erin’s favourite places to go is the beach but just the other week she got to experience it in a completely different way. Just after the Bank Holiday we were at a bit of a loss for something to do on the Tuesday in half term. We had the idea of taking Erin for her first rock pooling experience in West Runton, Norfolk so took the 20 minute drive to get there. Stupidly, we figured that because the weather was a bit miserable the beach would be pretty quiet. When we arrived at the beach it was super

A Day Out At Pensthorpe Natural Park

Last Bank Holiday weekend we were able to go for a really nice family day out together. My sister and her partner live with us at the moment and have a new car so we were able to go somewhere further afield than we normally could. After spending quite some time researching places we could go we finally decided on Pensthorpe Natural Park in Fakenham, Norfolk. Pensthorpe is about a 45-50 minute drive away from us as it’s in West Norfolk rather than North Norfolk but the drive was quite smooth and Erin was really excited about being in the

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

A Mummy And Daughter Day In Wroxham

It seems like a strange thing to say but I don’t really get much quality time with Erin. To start with, Erin goes to nursery from 8:45 to 3:30 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and we also do swimming lessons on a Monday. I know that leaves us 3 days a week but there are still other things going on. John will take Erin swimming or to the park most Sundays so I generally don’t get time with Erin until the afternoon. We also have my sister and brother in law living with us at the moment and Erin would
