A visit to Holme Grange Craft Village, Wokingham

Holme Grange Craft Village based in Wokingham, Berkshire is made up of a range of independent retailers. We have visited the craft village before to go to Brickies Club. The shops are all set in converted barns and include Pottery Pals, The Sweet Cabin, Handmade Craft Company, children's wear shop This Little Piggy and Sewisfaction who alongside selling fabric run a number of creative craft classes for both children and adults.

A visit to the Museum of Berkshire Aviation, Woodley

I have decided that in 2020 we are going to aim to visit some of Berkshire’s Museums, there are loads of them but haven’t got round to visiting them yet. We are an outdoor family so tend to head out for a walk or an outdoor adventure but since writing this blog I have realised there are loads of fantastic museums in Berkshire that we need to visit. Our eldest and my husband both love aeroplanes and helicopters so when we saw the Museum of Berkshire Aviation recommended on a local Facebook group we decided to go and have a look. The museum isn’t huge and is based at the historic site of Woodley Airfield, near Reading - once the centre of a thriving aircraft industry. The museum is crammed full of aircraft of all different shapes and sizes and plenty of aircraft artefacts and me

AD – Review // The Warren, Wokingham

I was invited to take my family to the relaunch press event at The Warren, Wokingham where we were kindly #gifted a meal and drinks for me review and for us to enjoy whilst also having a look at the pubs new refurb. If fact we were extremely honoured as we were the first people to ever dine in the newly decorated restaurant. We arrived at 6.30pm when the pub opened, which was a real treat for my little one as it was approaching normal bedtime, but on this occasion was allowed to stay up for a treat - we were all made extremely welcome.  After getting our drinks from the bar we settled next to one of the roaring open fires (my idea of heaven), where we were then presented with a selection of delicious canapés, which the pub serves during certain event occasions. There was also

AD – Review // Giggling Squid, Wokingham

I was invited along by the Giggling Squid, Wokingham to enjoy a complimentary meal for two and chose to take my husband as my guest. We very rarely go out as a couple, so we organised a family member to babysit and on Tuesday 9th October 2018 visited the restaurant. We were made very welcome and chose where we would like to sit. We ordered our drinks and browsed the menu. To start we had the sharing platter for two which included strips of hand-cut pork grilled on skewers, salt and pepper squid, Thai chicken wings and vegetable spring rolls and we also had a portion of prawn crackers. The starter was delicious and the sharing platter was a great way to sample a selection of the starters. For mains, I had a Chicken Thai Red curry and sticky rice and my husband had the Sleeping H...

All Aboard at Pinewood (Wokingham) Miniature Railway

We visited the Pinewood Miniature Railway situated between Wokingham and Crowthorne on 15th April 2018. It’s certainly popular and we queued for about 15 minutes for a ride on one of the miniature trains. There were about 4 trains in operation so the queue kept moving all the time. Whilst waiting it was great fun just watching the trains (a mixture of electric and steam) leaving and returning to the station and it meant that my little one didn’t get bored as there was plenty to see and talk about. Tickets for the train ride were £1 per person with under 3s going free or you could buy 5 tickets and get the 6th ride free. I thought the train journey was a good length and good value for money. The train took you through a woodland and there were magical fairy doors of different colour

A family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park, Wokingham

We took a family trip to Dinton Pastures Country Park during the first weekend of February half term. Despite it being cold the sky was bright blue and the sun was shining. We arrived at about 10am on the Sunday morning and parked in the overflow car park as the main car park was already full (parking charges apply). First of all we went for a walk around the lake. There were lots of ducks and geese to look at and plenty of muddy puddles! Our walk was lovely and it was fantastic to be outside in the fresh air, we were so lucky we decided to go in the morning as it snowed and haled that afternoon! The paths were busy with other walkers but there was still space for everyone. After our walk around part of the lake we headed to the play area. The play park is a good size and although it ...
