Rainy Days with Little Explorers

April showers and rainy days don’t need to be dull with a toddler. Children love to explore and often enjoy the rain as much as the sunshine. There is something magical about walking in the rain and having pure water tumbling from the sky, washing the cars and watering the fields. Spring brings beautiful ‘soft’ rain gently touching your skin and covering the view with a moving film. Before heading out

Jenny Scott – Author & Founder of Mothers-Meeting.Com

“Oh my God! You’re Welsh? I love you!” were pretty much Jenny’s first words to me when we met at a Mothers Meeting BFB getaway a few years back and it was a typical example of how this too cool for school bundle of energy manages to put everyone at ease in her presence, even if, on first sight, she seems the coolest of the cool kids!

Farm stays: Bringing Old MacDonald to Life

“Old MacDonald Had a Farm…” No parent of any child under 8 need hear any more but, whilst the joy may have gone out of the song when singing it for the 21st time as essential distraction tactics on a long car journey, there’s nothing to match the magic of seeing it come to life for the first time with your child on one of our farm stays mini breaks.   Being

Luxe Nursery and Children’s Furniture

Since stumbling on Cuckooland we’ve been drooling over the Scandi-chic Oliver collection of children’s furniture. There’s a lovely calming vibe about the pieces which are made from elegant and sustainable white lacquered woods with accents in exposed oak. All we need to do now is convince ourselves that, since most of the pieces are designed to grow with your child, we can justify the higher than average price bracket. Oliver Furniture’s designer, Søren Rørbæk grew up
