Trenance Gardens, Newquay, Cornwall TR7 2TW
Best zoo i’ve been to in ages!! Its not the biggest of places and at time can feel a bit cramped but the overall atmosphere was enjoyable. Try and go in the morning as the afternoon can get quite busy. The animals were great, loved the otters and prairie dogs! The picture of the Tapir which squirted the unwary passer-by was hilarious. The animal demonstrations were good and the involvement of the audience expanded the experience. Although i think making me handle the snake was taking it a bit too far!
Spent most of the day here and the kids loved it. There are cafes on site but these are expensive so i’d advise taking your own picnic with you … word of warning here there are wild birds walking around that will, if they get the chance, pinch your picnic.
This is a must for every Cornwall holiday.
7007 Seaworld Drive, 32821 Orlando
Out with the Disney experience, Seaworld was the highlight of our holiday. If you are going to do it get a two day pass as there is so much to see and do.
The live shows were fantastic from Shamu to the sea lion show… in fact the mime at the sea lion show was so funny that the kids went back to see him the next day!
The dolphins were beautiful and we even got to pet them.
One of the first places that you will see is the Ray feeding area. Here you can buy small trays of fish to feed to the masive Rays swimming around the open air pool. You just hold the fish under the water and the ray will glide over your hand and suck up the fish … how cool is that!!!
I definitely recommend a two day pass so that you don’t rush around and miss everything. Its a fantastic place.
If you want scaring out of your wits take the Kraken ride, its a thundering rollercoster full of twist and turns … it was so scary that i had to sit down for 20 minutes afterwards to recover.
I recommend taking plenty of water when you visit as it can get very warm although there are some mist sprinklers dotted about the park that you can walk under to cool down.
The All Star Sports Resort if a functional Disney themed hotel complex. The rooms are spacious and adequate. At the end of the day its just a bed as you’ll be out and about most of the time! The best thing about the rooms was the air conditioning … in the summer this is a Gods send!
The bonus with staying on site as it were was the Disney bus service, it was free, the drivers maintained a running commentary were always friendly and happy to answer questions, some of them even initiated sin-alongs!!
The pool was manned from 8 till 10 after which it was the parent responsibility to watch the children. the food was what you’d expect from an American diner … I think I may have become addicted to pancakes and maple syrup!
I would definably recommend staying on site for the added bonus of the bus service and the early morning and late night passes.
Liberty Square, 32836 Orlando
Absolutely wonderful, what an experience and what memories i’ll have. We stayed in the Disney Sports complex so getting to any of the Disney resorts was a breeze via the bus service. It also gave us the added bonus of getting in to the Parks an hour before they officially opened and on special nights allowed us to stay in the Park well after closing time.
I recommend spending a late night at the Magic Kingdom, there are hardly any ques and everything is lit up, truely MAGIC!!
Our favourite rides were the Buzz Lightyear and the Stich rides …. we did them both three times in a row, each, one night!!
One other thing, if you go to the Kingdom over Halloween, be prepared to go in fancy dress .. they have a huge fancy dress party there.
Can’t wait to go there again.
Dumfries, Dumfries & Galloway
Situated on the Solway Firth, Southerness Holiday Park is a caravan and camping site with on site amenities and entertainment.
Located close the Sweetheart Abbey and just done the road from John Paul Jones’ birth place, the site offers good value for money for families on a budget. From static caravan to mobile homes to tents this site accepts all.
The entertainment on offer is basic and caters mainly for the kids although there is the odd bingo night or live band. There is also a indoor swimming pool which is only open at certain times.
The surrounding scenery is breathtaking and the beaches clean, when the tide goes out its a bit of a long walk to the waters edge. The closeness of the ocean also offers ample opportunities for shore and rock fishing or poking about in rock pools.
The only downside of the whole experience are the arcade amusements …. cost me a fortune!!
I’ve been going there for more years than i care to think and it has gone a bit commercial since being taken over by Parkdean .. i still remember the good ol’ days of Magic Malky!!!
Maybole , Ayr, Scotland KA19 8LE
This magnificent 'castle’ set on the shore is encompassed by a large grounds which is popular with day trippers and dog walkers alike. There is plenty to see and do without actually going into the Castle itself, but if you want to, the guided tours are excellent.
It does cost if you want to enter the park but what you can do is go further down the coast to Maiddens, park up there and walk in to the castle grounds via the back gate! To enter the castle will cost you extra.
As a point of note Culzean Castle do a Christmas tour with mulled wine and mince pies. All the staff dress up in Victorian regalia and its well worth a visit at this time.
The Harbour, Irvine, Scotland KA12 8PP
The all in one sports centre, swimming, ice skating, squash, sports hall. It also has a small cinema, a bar and a rather good fast food bar.
The swimming pool consists of a small “paddeling” pool for non swimmers, a large pool which is slightly deeper, water slides, two flumes, one of which ends in a whirlepool, and an out door pool. The out door pool can be reached from inside the Magnam main pool.
The ice rink holds ice discos on a regular basis, ice hockey games and curling. Skates can be hired.
The sports has can play host to football, badminton etc. There is also a fun area for younger children where the soft furniture allows them to jump and play.
There is indoor bowling, gym facilities and the usual steam/sauna rooms.
North Parade, Skegness, Lincolnshire PE25 1DB
If you only visit one place in Skegness this has to be it!!
although small the Seal Sanctuary is one amazing place. The main attraction are the seals and Natureland does a lot of work with abandoned baby seals which are so beautiful to watch.
You do get the chance to watch the seals being fed but the feeding times do vary so make sure you check them prior to visiting.
The feeding of the penguins is also not to be missed. The floral house contains butterflies by the hundreds which just flutter about the place and the tropical house houses crocadiles snakes and spiders.
