Top Tips for going to  Festivals with Tweens – Nozstock The Hidden Valley 2

It seems that the summer has happened it you haven’t been to a festival and now the boys are older (11 and 12) we are back to really enjoying festivals as a family.  We used to regularly go to festivals BC (before children) and never missed a Reading Festival for 13 years!  Rather than do a big festival with the kids we have been loving going to smaller and independent ones. This year we have been looking forward to visiting Nozstock The Hidden Valley.

Mallorca – Family Friendly Villa Holiday with James Villas 12

Our recent family friendly villa holiday was a real treat.  It allowed us the comfort of a traditional Mallorcan home with its own pool and left me safe in the knowledge that my sometimes loud boys would not interrupt anyone.
