As a child some of my favourites memories were our holidays to Devon in a static caravan – and for Ell, although his family stayed in Cornwall. It’s actually a tradition we’ve carried on since having our own children – they love caravan holidays, and they love Cornwall. We were so excited to be invited for a weekend stay at Trevornick, Holywell Bay in one of their brand new static caravans.  Trevornick is a 5* family owned site 5.5 miles from Newquay, with over 600 camping and touring pitches, 36 fully equipped Eurotents, and from the start of the 2018…

We are huge fans of a self catering holiday. As a family on the ‘larger side’ it is usually the most affordable option for us. It is also the easiest option, as despite our children getting older now, and being out of the bottle stage (and not too far from being out of the nappy stage), we still seem to take a ridiculous amount of things with us when we go anywhere.

We’ve not long returned from our holiday to Cornwall – and the holiday blues have well and truly set back in, with the return to the school run, and the madness that the en dot the school summer term brings. We had a wonderful time away – not really doing much. We visit Cornwall at least once a year and we’ve done all the touristy bits now, so our days are mainly spent on the beach, digging, building and paddling. This time we went with my parents, and stayed in a gorgeous property in Carlyon Bay, near Charlestown (where they…

I’m so totally behind with all my summer posts at the moment, but it is lovely as I’m having fun going back through the photos more than a month on. All of my ‘big camera’ photos are in a separate photo heavy posts which you can find here, but these are my iPhone memories, with a few big camera photos thrown in for good measure. Every year we try and get in a family holiday to Cornwall. We have been going nearly every year since Izzie was a tiny baby, and sometimes we go with my parents and have stayed…
