Adventures // Yorkshire Lavender

Fields of lavender are the current seasonal Instagram obsession, so we decided to head to Yorkshire Lavender last weekend to explore and capture some photos of the children in a sea of purple. Yorkshire Lavender is in Terrington, just outside of York, and is set in 60-acres of hillside. The weather was perfect, and I was surprised how quiet it was! If it had been the same day at a lavender farm in Sussex, we would have been queuing for ages to get in.

Adventures // North Yorkshire Moors Railway, Pickering

Nick and I have been itching to take the children to the North Yorkshire Moors Railway ever since we relocated up here in 2014, but always end up with very jam-packed weekends (such is life with children!). As H-Bear is train mad, we decided to take him for his birthday a couple of weeks ago – and we had the BEST time! We parked at Pickering station, which is absolutely beautiful (parking was £5 for the day). The station is full of wonderful exhibitions, a shop, a café, and even a  ...

Family Fun // The Hepworth Wakefield

We had big plans for Bank Holiday Monday involving outdoor adventures, but as the date swiftly approached, the weather looked fairly miserable (and we forgot to take our wellies over to Nick’s parents house!).

It’s somewhere we’ve been wanting to visit for ages, and I’m so glad we did as it’s a fantastic place to take the kids! The  ...

Family Fun // North Cliffe Wood Nature Reserve, East Yorkshire

The move to Yorkshire from Sussex was a difficult one for me. I’d romanticised our relocation; we’d get a dog, we’d all be in matching Hunter wellies, and everyone in our village would be gamekeepers, walking around in flatcaps, saying “aye up lass”… I guess this is what happens when you read a lot of D.H Lawrence as an impressionable teenager?! Anyway, pregnancy happened. Perinatal depression happened. Postnatal depression happened. And two years on  ...

Family Fun // Bridlington Beach

The thing I love most about living in Yorkshire are the beaches. Having grown up with Brighton beach as my back garden (almost literally until I was 10), I love being near the sea. I’m drawn to it. So living close(ish) to the beach is quite important for me – and what beaches they have up here! For a start, there’s sand! I’m so used to pebbles that bruise every surface of your body, and feet that have become so hardened by stepping on these pebbles, that sand is a  ...
