We support the National Trust 100 things to do before you are 11¾ along with all other ideas for family fun outside. 

Country Kids 13.5.17 A Train Ride

 May sunshine, could it be summer? 

We have had such a busy week here on the farm and I’m grateful for the lovely sunshine and warmth for the best part. We have just finished our new lodge Polzeath with super duper play room including soft play and a reading snug for our guests to enjoy between outdoor adventures. On the farm Rambo literally pushed us into sheep shearing this week, more about that on my post this week, and I’m delighted to say I have seen all 9 of our little ducklings thriving on the lake. Whatever your adventures, I hope you’ll pop by and share them on the link up below.

  • Post must be predominantly outdoors such as in the garden, the park, the woods or the beach with crafting, learning, exploring or playing.
    • Despite the title, both countryside and urban outdoor adventures are welcome.

Top Commenter : Sonia from Mamma’s School

Many of you will know Lucy from Kids of the Wild has been having a hard few months after finding her beautiful wild child daughter has cancer. Caroline has been fighting hard and the family are staying positive through the grueling effects of chemotherapy. Lucy has been reflecting back on happier times and we share her hope and determination that these happy times will be enjoyed again in time. If you are not familiar with Lucy’s blog, do have a read of her recent posts, she is an inspiration to parents everywhere.

Meme and Harri have been off visiting their favourite National Trust property. Bodnant Gardens does look beautiful in spring bloom.
