Becka from Mommy EST 2014 says Ickworth Park is a National Trust property with amazing woodlands, trails, a big wooden play park and beautiful house and grounds. Lovely restaurant with orangery where you can sit and watch out the windows.


when I think of going on holiday I think of going to the beach. Even in the UK we can have some lovely weather making the beach the place to go. Felixstowe is a lovely section of coastline with so much to do.

Suzie from Raising badgers says It’s always a pleasure to spend a day – or a week – in Southwold. We have spent hours on the beach and investigating the pier. Don’t miss ‘The Under The Pier Show’ with it’s crazy arcade amusements; a cake in the café, or an ice cream waiting for the water-clock to reach the hour/half hour. There are lots of good independent shops in the town, including a good toy shop in the Post Office, should that be motivating! Southwold also has loads of nice places to eat; the Lord Nelson down by the seafront is famed for its fish and chips!

We are a lover of going to the zoo or a wildlife park. This is something we love to do as a family and go to them as often as we can. Africa Alice is just south of Lowestoft and specialises in African animals hence the name. It’s a great place for people of all ages and like most wildlife parks its open all year round. It also has a great soft play area so if your kids need to let of some steam away from the animals they can have a play on the soft play area. Check out this fab review from Big Family little Adventures for more information and some fantastic photos from their day at Africa Alive.
