#southwestdaysout – February Half Term

February Half Term

It feels like we’ve only just got back into the swing of things following Christmas, and yet another school holiday is just around the corner.

I’m really hoping that the weather is on our side as we have a couple of outside trips to go on. Worse case scenario we go armed with wellies, raincoats and umbrella’s. Sometimes you’ve just got to go for it.

Here are some of the things that have made our ears prick up:

February Half Term

1. Wildwood Escot – Adopt an Animal Week

This is a great place to take the kids. All week they have animal talks including Otters and Red Squirrels.
What’s on this week? Creepy Crawly Welly Walks, pond dipping and making animal dens as well as all the usual outdoor fun.
Adult £9.50
Children £8.00 (Under 3’s FREE)

February Half Term

2. Crealy – Devon

What’s not to love about Crealy. There’s loads of stuff to do for all ages outside if the weather is nice, and if not you can hunch up with all the other mums and dads in the indoor play area and let the kids let off some steam. Meet the animals including Goats, Ponies, Monkeys and Meerkats. During half-term they’re running competitions for a chance to Win prizes totalling £5000 over the week. You can also camp, glamp or stay in a lodge in Crealy Meadows.
Adults £6.95
Children £6.95 (Under 92cm FREE)

February Half Term

3. The Donkey Sanctuary 

Named as one of the ‘Top Ten Family Day’s Out in Devon’. This is a lovely place to take the kids where you can meet the donkey’s and stay for a grooming session along with talks about the work that they do (which is amazing). They have a maze and an outdoor play area, and I hear that the food is absolutely delicious.
Adults FREE
Children FREE

February Half Term

4. Cofton Holiday Park

They are offering a Dip and Dine offer with swimming, sauna and steam (adults only) and food in Amelia’s where they serve a selection of hot and cold food. We’ve done this before where we’ve had a swim and then a cooked breakfast which was lovely.
Adults £9.00
Children £6.00

February Half Term

5. Pennywell Farm VIP February 

To launch the season’s opening, if you visit during 11th – 19th February you will be given a return ticket to visit as many times as you like during half-term. Take the little ones along for animal feeding, egg collecting, pond dipping, ferret racing and miniature pig racing. If you visit on 11th or 17th February Poco Drom will be playing which is always a treat.
Adults £14.95
Children £10.95

February Half Term

6. The Bear Trail 

A brand new adventure trail for kids and adults alike. The trail is for all ages and has a range of bridges, zip wires, stepping stones and ropes. If you’re kids like mud (who doesn’t) then this is great fun. Booking is advised.
Over 1 Metre £6.50
Under 1 Metre £3.50

February Half Term

7. The Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM)

There are loads of workshops during half-term week including animation workshops, Family Collage making and a Chinese Trail. Most of these are drop-in sessions but pop over the to website to check to avoid disappointment.

I’ve been meaning to take Isabelle here for a while now. Not only do they have lots of hedgehogs that have been rescued, but they have other animals such as goats, pigs and ponies. Get involved with feeding and petting the animals. This February entry is only £5.00 (including half-term).

There are also lots of FREE things to do in the South West such as taking advantage of the many beaches. We love going to beach outside of summer time to find unusual things in the rock pools, and collect shells and pebbles . Put your wellies on, grab a bucket and a net and off you go.

October Half Term – Week 1

October Half Term – Week 1

October Halfterm

It’s the start of October half-term for most people, but we’re one week into our two week half-term holiday.

It doesn’t feel like Isabelle has been back at school and Ryan at college for less than five minutes, but this has been a welcome break away from work for me.

October Half-Term

This was Isabelle pretending that her scooter was a skateboard having just gone past the skatepark. Incidentally we passed a couple of mums with their kids, one riding one of her kids bikes whilst the other decided to have a go on her son’s skateboard.

Well, legs went a-flying and she very unladylike landed in a crumpled heap on the floor. But all was well as our wet dog ran over to investigate and gave her a very unwelcome wet sloppy kiss. Ha-ha the things we do to prove that we’re not passed it!

Having committed myself to a year of working full-time as well as running my own business and blogging commitments, the last time I had any block time off work was at the end of July which feels like an extremely long time ago.

As it’s not been officially half-term so far there hasn’t been a lot going on in terms of activities for Isabelle to do.

Ryan started working at Sainsbury’s with his first day being the start of their huge toy sale, so he got a real feel of the reality of working his butt off.

So what have we been up to?

Leisurely breakfasts and tea n toast in bed have been a regular occurrence, and it’s been a real treat not having to get up and dressed whilst keeping one eye on the clock before leaving at 7am each morning.

The ironing pile has increased – ha ha!

We’ve met up with friends and eat cake, we’ve walked the dog and been shopping.

We’ve done arts and crafts and cooking together.

October Half term

We had a day trip to Plymouth where we met up with a lovely lady from Theatre Royal – fingers crossed we might re-visit this visit in more depth.

We visited Dart’s Farm for cake and coffee (as well as sampling anything on offer which Isabelle loves to do) and sampled the most amazing curry (excluding Chris’ of course) from a lady called Bini from www.sweetcumin.co.uk based in Somerset.

I’ve added a lovely new range of Organic Baby Clothes from Jelly Babe Organics.

October Half Term

And today we went to the Pumpkin and Apple Day at West Town Farm which was lovely. We were a bit gutted that we didn’t get to try on of their pizzas made in front of you and cooked in a clay oven.

I’ve been way more productive this week , and things have been way more enjoyable.

We’re going to be slightly busier next week, but in a nice way!
