It’s been another summer of heatwaves – and the best way to cool off with your kids is to turn your garden into a mini water park. Here’s how we did it…

Canoeing with toddlers for the first time is daunting, but if you prepare properly, pick the right location and the right weather, it’s a wonderful family activity. Here’s how we do it…
Holkham Beach in Norfolk is a perfect day out for outdoorsy families. You can paddle in the sea, run in the sand dunes, play games on the beach and charge through the pinewoods. We love it!
