YHA in Stratford-Upon-Avon

Why The Stratford-Upon-Avon YHA Is Perfect For Families

It was with great trepidation that we first stayed in a YHA (Youth Hostel Association) property a couple of years ago when I thought they would be dirty, smelly and full of young travelers moving from room to room in the middle of the night or worse yet full of random murderers like on the horror films! Yet we (obviously) lived to tell the tale, loved our stay and have since stayed in various YHA […]

Our Festival Checklist

However after reading numerous posts, speaking to fellow festival goers, and having experienced festival life first hand we now feel pretty confident that we know what to take and what not to take with us this weekend when we visit Nozstock festival for the first time.

Our review of the Cornbury Festival 2019

We have just got back from our first ever weekend camping festival experience.  After much deliberation and review reading we chose the Cornbury Festival to be our first, based mainly on the fact it had such good write ups when it came to being family friendly, and it was definitely the right choice. We have had the best weekend ever and I urge anyone who is thinking of braving a festival with kids to absolutely […]

The BBC Summer Social Family Festival in Liverpool

At the start of June we took the boys to their first ever festival, Cheshire Fest, and we had such a good time that since then we have been looking for more family festivals that we can visit this year and are thinking of going to the BBC Summer Social (3-4 August, 2019).    It looks like it is going to be amazing, completely aimed at children and families and incredible value for money with everything […]

cheshire fest

Our Cheshire Fest Review

Last weekend we took the boys to their first ever festival. We chose one that was close to home and a day event as opposed to camping so we had the option of leaving without to much hassle should we need to. It was called Cheshire Fest and was hosted at Manchester Rugby Club in Cheadle Hulme, about 40 minutes from where we live. Choosing to go to a festival with our children was one […]
