A night at Novotel London Excel

We decided to ease ourselves back into the travel scene after the arrival of baby Quinn just three weeks ago. Given it was Travel Mad Dad's birthday, we wanted to do something special but easy on us sleep deprived parents. Spending a night in a family friendly hotel, not too far from home, seemed like [...]

A two night stay at Crealy Meadows, Devon

On our recent trip to the south of England, we stayed in two different places. Starting off with a two night stay at Crealy Meadows, Devon, followed by a stop further south. I wanted to mix it up a little so Esme could have some nice time in a child-friendly place before going to a [...]
