Snowdrops at Hodsock Priory – A Half-Term Day Out

We had three days together just me and the boys and one with something already planned so when it came to Monday evening I was scouring the internet to find a cheap local day out for us as I knew the weather was going to be quite good the next day.  I found out about the snowdrop gardens and woodland walk at Hodsock Priory near Blyth, North Nottinghamshire, just off the A1 between Worksop and Doncaster, so decided to head there for a look around and some fresh air.

Hello Spring! – Family time at Gedling Country Park

Gedling Country Park was an old colliery and was officially opened after paths were installed for walking and cycling in 2015.  The playground was added in autumn last year and the boys love it.  There is a large area for toddlers with a sand pit, floor trampoline, swings, slide and a roundabout and then another large area for older children with swings, two slides and a climbing frame among other things.  The boys favourite is the zip wire.  There are also picnic benches so you can take food to eat.
