During the May half term break, we spent 3 nights at the luxurious Slaley Hall resort in Northumberland.  We were invited by Q Lodges to stay in a 3 bedroom lodge, and experience what Slaley Hall has to offer.  I first heard about Q Lodges when Sarah, from Extraordinary Chaos stayed at Slaley Hall back in October. Sarah is the Q Hotels Ambassador, and she is doing an amazing job of highlighting the facilities that Q offers for families.

Here we are at the end of half term and what a fantastic week we have had. On Monday we went to Geronimo at Tatton Park, which was an amazing family friendly festival. On Wednesday we travelled up to Northumberland and stayed at Slaley Hall with Q Lodges. We returned back home yesterday, and I am still smiling about our wonderful trip.

We were given our keys, information pack and also our golf buggy keys. … Continue reading

As a family we have been holidaying in the UK for 13 years now. Our very first family holiday, with our son, was to a Haven site in Filey, Yorkshire.  I still remember our last night. We were sat on Filey beach, enjoying a hot chocolate with all the trimmings, and I remember a feeling of sadness. Sad that our very first holiday was coming to an end. That moment could well have started my love of holidays. You see before having the kids, hubby and I had only been away twice.
