Dad Diaries #2 – A Week Away at Burnham-on-Sea

This week we’ve been on a little family getaway to the Somerset sea town of Burnham-on-Sea at the Haven resort. If you follow me in all the usual places then you probably already knew that. But I wasn’t really that active this past week. I think every now and then it’s nice to scale back on social media and take a little bit of a break. And getting away gives you a great chance to do that. Almost Having an Absolute Nightmare I’ve made the odd parenting mistake in my time since having Isabelle – Rachel makes the point that…

Lynton Cottage Hotel: The Seaview Apartments

If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Lynton that has a spectacular view, plenty of space and all the facilities that you’d have in the home, then look no further than a seaview apartment in the Lynton Cottage Hotel.

Did we have any particular reason for choosing the small town of Lynton on the coast of the Exmoor National Park? Not really. But the Lynton Cottage Apartment stood out to us, and if where you’re staying is great, then you’re off to a good start. The Hotel On the first day of arrival, we didn’t really do all that much. In fairness, it took me bloody long enough lugging three cases, around four bags and a high chair up…

#MySundayPhoto – Reflecting on Being Back in Western

I love this photo for quite a few reasons. But most of those reasons have nothing to do with the actual photo itself. Sure, I think it’s a great picture. The background looks awesome, and the two people at the front are the two most important people in my life. But there’s more to it than that. It was taken in Western, whilst we were on our way home from Exmoor. This wasn’t our first time in Western with Isabelle. No, it was actually the first place we ever stayed overnight with Isabelle that wasn’t our own home. She was…
