Family Fun // Honeysuckle Farm, Hornsea

What a glorious weekend we’ve just had here in Yorkshire! The sun shone, we shunned the coats and, on Saturday, visited Honeysuckle Farm in Hornsea for the first time. We had big plans to visit Honeysuckle Farm while Nick was on paternity leave two years ago, and again last year, but we’ve never quite made it (I’m blaming sleep deprivation!), so I was quite determined that would indeed visit last Saturday. Honeysuckle Farm is just outside the seaside town of Hornsea. Set  ...

Family Fun // A Weekend in Whitby

At the beginning of September, we headed to Whitby with Nick’s parents to stay in their neighbours’ holiday cottage. I’d never visited Whitby before and it’s gorgeous (much better than Scarborough). It has a similar arty vibe to Lewes in Sussex. It’s also steeped in history and with the added benefit of the most amazing beaches! We had such a marvellous weekend away – lots of beach exploration, fish and chips, sandy sandwiches and laughter. It was  ...

Review // Jamie’s Italian, York – The Super Lunch Menu

Review // Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, North Yorkshire

Back in December, Nick and I were invited to stay at the beautiful Ox Pasture Hall Hotel, near Scarborough in North Yorkshire. H-Bear was too little to consider a night away in December, and then Nick’s parents (our babysitters) were in Australia for 8 weeks, so we booked the first date we could – in April! We have been looking forward to our visit (and the sleep) from the moment our booking was confirmed, and my first night away from H-Bear didn’t disappoint. Before  ...

Review // Pizza Express in Beverley, East Yorkshire #PizzaExpressFamily

Pizza Express is one of our favourite restaurants to take the children to; the Piccolo menu is such good value for money (£6.95 for three courses and a bambinoccino), there’s usually a very friendly atmosphere, and the staff have always been fantastic with the kids – and very understanding about the mess that comes with dining out with two children. So when we were invited along to dine as part of the #PizzaExpressFamily Blogger campaign, and try out the new spring menu, we  ...
