Catchpenny Safari Lodges in Elie
So our Easter break kicked off with a fabulous weekend stay in Elie thanks to Catchpenny Safari Lodges and Jenny from Monkey and Mouse. You can read a full review on Jenny's blog but I'll also tell you a little bit about it here. We’ve done some glamping before but CatchPenny take it to another level. These beautiful safari style lodges, of which there are 8, lay nestled along the East Neuk of Fife. Right next to the beach with fantastic sea views for miles, you have prime access to the famous Fife Coastal Path. Harlow is a right beach comber so we were hunting for crabs and sea creatures practically every day. The lodges are super luxurious with everything you need, including and amazing bathroom with hot shower, for a comfortable stay. I'd highly recommend them plus they're dog friendly, yay!
Next up us adults had the chance at a wee solo trip to London without the kids. My husband won a 2 night stay at the Moxy London Stratford so we couldn't pass up the opportunity for some us time. My lovely mother-in-law took the kids and we flew to London to enjoy ourselves. We ate out and didn't have to share our food, traveled the underground with no screaming kids and we even got to see a show! We managed to secure tickets to the fabulous Wicked performance at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. OMG what a show! Everything about it was amazing and I'd definitely go back to see it again.
Blair Drummond Safari Park
When we got back home and resumed our parental duties we took the kids to Blair Drummond Safari Park for the day. The had their Big Spring Fling on which meant lots of extra activities for the kids to enjoy. Magic shows, arts and crafts, 3D cinema - it was all great fun. We literally spent the whole day there and still didn't manage to do everything. I'm sure we'll be back soon for more fun.
The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice
Another Disney On Ice show had rocked into the SSE Hydro in Glasgow so we were invited along with the kids. I took some friends as well as there's nothing better than sharing the magic than with your besties. It was a typically lovely show with tons of Disney characters from Rapunzel, Dory, Nemo, The Lion King and of course the favourite - Frozen! It's not a Disney On Ice show unless the Frozen sisters are in it. The kids all seemed to really enjoy themselves and I was happily singing along to every song too. Can't wait for the next show.
Inverness Break - Landmark Forest Adventure Park
We didn't have much planned for the second week of the holidays so I booked us a trip to Inverness. Well we stay in lodges just outside Inverness in Drumnadrochit but it's not far. One of the things the kids were looking forward to most was getting back to the awesome Landmark Forest Adventure Park. It's a massive park nestled into the woods in Carrbridge (not far from Aviremore) and it has loads of cool stuff for the kids to do. There's huge play park, wild water slides which are so much fun, a beautiful butterfly house, lots of trails in the tree tops, a red squirrel walk, labyrinth maze and not to forget the mind boggling Bamboozeleum full of illusions. This is Logan's absolute favourite, it has so many different illusions and we totally love it. If you ever get the chance to visit Landmark Forest Adventure Park definitely take it. We spent all day here and never left until the very end. Loved it.
Conifox Easter Egg Hunt
The school holidays are almost over but for one last treat we're taking the kids to the exciting Easter Egg hunt at Conifox Adventure Park this weekend. There's a chance to find all the clues and win a medium sized egg or be super lucky and find a golden egg to win a large Cadbury's egg! How exciting. My hubby has pretty good attention to detail so I'm hoping he'll find a golden egg, haha.
I'd love to hear what you've all been up to this Easter? With the better weather coming in I'm just hoping to get all of my holiday washing done now!
