What's On for Kids - October Half Term | North East England

Advert - Some of this article has been sponsored & I have worked with most of the attractions mentioned in the past. I have editorial control and have picked all of these events for inclusion.

What's On for Kids - October Half Term | North East England

Just to be awkward, all of the schools in North East England aren't off at the same time this year so my October Half Term guide runs from Friday 18th October - Sunday 3rd November. Please check your individual school holidays before booking anything.

Ready Camp Horsley Review : Glamping near LEGOLAND and Chessington World of Adventures

I booked a short break for us at the Camping and Caravanning Club site in Horsley, Surrey this summer. It cost £350 for 5 of us to stay in the 6-berth glamping tent from Monday-Friday. We picked this site as we wanted somewhere cheap to stay whilst visiting nearby Chessington, Thorpe Park and LEGOLAND. You can also bring your own tent, caravan or campervan here and electric hook-up is available. During the summer holidays, it was only £70 more for us to stay in a pre-pitched safari tent than bringing our own with electric hook up so for convenience, we went with the Ready Camp option. You can book online for Monday-Friday, Friday-Monday or Friday-Friday/Monday-Monday breaks. You pay £100 on booking and the balance six weeks before your trip.

Where to go Blackberry Picking in North East England


Blackberry picking is one of Jack's favourite pastimes - he loves it and asks continuously if we can go as soon as he spots the first green berries on the bushes during our walk home from school. It's something that our grandparents and parents did and a tradition I'm keen to pass on and keep alive.

Shepherd's Retreats Review - Dog-friendly Glamping in Northumberland

Post features a press stay with Shepherd's Retreats. I have not been paid to write this & Sheperd's Retreats had no control.

Shepherd's Retreats Beadnell Review - Dog-friendly Glamping in Northumberland

Shepherd's Retreats are two Shepherd's Huts in Northumberland. Situated within walking distance of Beadnell (home to a lovely pub, glorious dog-friendly beach with plenty of watersports, restaurant and shop) and a short drive from Bamburgh and Seahouses, they're an ideal base for exploring some of the best parts of the Northumberland coast.

The Best Hotel Suite in Newcastle?

We're the kind of people who are happy to splash out on a super luxury hotel for a special occasion yet equally as likely to bunk up in a Travelodge. When looking for places to stay, it's all about value for money for us.
