If there’s one thing that J and I love, it’s packing our cases and going on our hols!
Back before we had the kiddies, we used to pack as many holidays and mini breaks in to our year as possible. However, all that changed with how hectic the last few years have been and sadly, we’ve gone on a grand total of 2 holidays in the last four years. All that is about to change!
We decided to test the water this weekend by going on a small mini break to the UK. We kept flight and travel distances short and sweet, just to gauge the level of difficulty for flying with two tantrum prone smallies. They can be difficult on a trip to the grocery store, not to mind a trip overseas, but thankfully, with the exception of one mild (to moderate) melt down in Gatwick Airport, it was all plain sailing-or should that be plain flying!?
We decided to bring the kids to Paulton’s Park, home of Peppa Pig World. They have both been raised on Peppa, and were super excited to go and meet their idols.
Peppa Pig World has 7 fun rides that are suitable for children over 12 months of age. Enjoy Miss Rabbit’s Helicopter Flight, Peppa’s Big Balloon Ride, Windy Castle, Grandpa Pig’s Boat Ride, Daddy Pig’s Car Ride, George’s Dinosaur Adventure and Grandpa Pig’s Train Ride.
There is also a soft play area George’s Spaceship Play Zone, which is a handy hangout if the heavens decide to open on you right in the middle of your sunny lunch break, which is exactly what happened to us. Mr. Potato’s Playground and Muddy Puddles Splash Park are fun places to enjoy those sunny spells in.
Pay a visit Peppa Pig’s House and Madame Gazelle’s School House. You can meet Peppa and George outside the school house between 12 and 2 every day. The two little pigs also make another star appearance at 15:30.
It’s not all about Peppa though.
The park also has Tiny Tots Town, and more adorable rides for youngsters, such as teacups, Viking boats and a vintage carousel. They also have a Curious Critters area which has an aquarium, and a fun rollercoaster.
There is another splash park for summer visits, and plenty of bigger rides for the brave amongst you.
The park has everything! It has stunning gardens and lots of animals, as well as lots of rides and attractions. There are meerkats, penguins, pink flamingos and plenty of other gorgeous little animals. I would definitely recommend a visit if you’re ever near Hampshire!
As for us, we will definitely be going on A LOT more breaks away from now on, so keep your eyes peeled for updates.
