We are at Crieff Hydro and they have an onside riding centre. Eva went riding for the first time. On her own. Well she didn’t need mummy or daddy to go round with her. I think we can say she enjoyed it!
Our home for 4 nights. One of the cosy cottages on the Crieff hydro estate. So far we are loving it here. At the main hotel there are three restaurants and two cafes. Free childcare at big country. Yes you get free nursery quality child care. There is also soft play, games room, and trampolines […]
We needed lunch on the way to Crief our next stop. One random road sign and an hour detour here we are at Scotlands secret bunker for lunch. The cafe there is the original one in the bunker. Still with its 1950’s feeling. But with wifi. Eva enjoyed her underground lunch. Then it was time […]
The pool was one of the best parts of the hotel for us. They catered for families well, with a kids menu and kids area. We would stay again with a good travel connections. https://www.accorhotels.com/gb/hotel-6515-novotel-edinburgh-park/index.shtml
We had a good drive to Edinburgh and arrived at the hotel early. Found the hotel was right next to the tram stop, so parked at the hotel used the facilities, and off for Eva’s first tram ride. £8.50 for an all day family ticket, and 20mins later, we were in the heart of Edinburgh […]

Quick stop on Gretna yesterday afternoon. We got married there back in April 2015 and wanted to let Eva see where mummy and daddy got married,
Tummies filled with healthy motorway services food and we are ready for the road again, Eva had a good play on their soft play after her dinner. The family wash rooms are great. Full size and little person flushing toilets, and sinks. Eva’s only complaint she did not like the hand dryer.
On our way to our first stop on our trip up to Scotland. Crawling in traffic outside Lancaster on the M6. Dumfries here we come. Just a one night stop but our first hotel stay with the little one. We wanted to break the journey up for her. Stuck in a slow traffic and she’s […]
Hostels have changed a lot over the last 10 years. They are no longer just for back packers wanting a cheap bed for the night while they travel around. The YHA Hostels are great for families on a budget. Large clean rooms with either shared bath rooms or en-suite which don’t cost the earth. The […]
