KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Fewston and Swinsty Reservoirs – North Yorkshire

I love taking the kids up for a walk or a run around the Fewston and Swinsty reservoirs. The scenery is stunning and if you go early enough you can find baby deer on the pathways and the reservoir so still it looks like a perfect mirror reflecting the skyline. We love taking a picnic and sitting on one of the many benches around the pathways and then the kids love to spend hours skimming pebbles on one of the small beaches around Swinsty.

KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Bingley St Ives Estate – West Yorkshire

Since becoming dog owners we’ve tried to find places that keep children and four-legged friends equally happy and Bingley St Ives Estate does just that.

KID-FRIENDLY WALK | Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal – North Yorkshire

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is full of beautifully manicured gardens, follies, and water features to ancient ruins and parkland with free-roaming deer. The kids might not fully appreciate the breathtaking beauty of Studley Royal and the history of the 12th-century Cistercian abbey but they’ll love the huge timber play area, nature-spotting, tunnels and climbing all over the abbey ruins.

PARENTING | My Favourite Christmas Traditions

I love Christmas. Always have. I don’t know if it’s something to do with being a teacher and from early November being surrounded by shepherd costumes and glitter on a daily basis but I always get so excited for this time of year! Now I’ve got my own little angel I can channel all my festive ideas on to her and pass on my love of this season. Everyone’s got their own family traditions they set up and here’s a few of ours.
