A UK Family Travel & Lifestyle Blog

About & Work With Me

North East Family Fun is an award-winning family travel & lifestyle blog based in Northumberland. We are a family of 5 - there’s mum & dad plus Harry (10), Heidi (8) and Jack (6). We started blogging to record our family memories and especially enjoy writing about the great outdoors, days out, good food and travel - we cover everything from family life at home and local restaurant reviews to camping in our local woods to worldwide luxury travel so expect a real mix of content. 

North East Family Fun has been listed as the #1 UK Family Travel Blog in 2017 based on social reach and unique page views. You can see the full list of blogs here.
