Camping Out In Cornwall & Equipment You May Need

When I was a kid I loved camping, it all started off as soon as I could walk I loved to make dens. We had a row of trees in my parents garden that used to make one end of the camp, then we would use the windbreak (from when we went to the beach) for the other side. The top used to be an old bedsheet we would tie to the trees. Many an hour was spent in our camp! I was a proper outdoorsy child, you could always find me playing with stones and in the mud!

Are you going on Holiday? You may Need a Zap-It!

It’s the start of the Summer holidays so you may be thinking about going abroad, or maybe staying home this year in your garden. Which ever you decide to do you may want to think about mosquitoes.

Lucky for you I have 3 to giveaway, but first here is a little about the Zap-It!

Did you know that scratching a mosquito bite may bring short-lived relief? but it also floods the bitten area with histamine causing swelling, incessant urges to scratch and a risk of damaging the skin’s surface, and therefore you could get an infection.

A safe, clinically tested way to deal with mosquitoes and other insect bites is to use Zap-It!

Child Friendly Holiday Destinations For New Parents

The Summer holidays are now here so it’s the best chance to make the most of spending quality time together as a new family. Yet where to you go on holiday with babies and toddlers?

With the help of Babythingz — a leading UK supplier of cute cosytoes for prams and buggies — we’ve discovered the top child-friendly holiday destinations for you to choose from, as well as tips for travelling with young ones.

Cornwall

I would have to list my home county as the top child friendly destination of course, due to its beautiful coastline with peaceful and exciting spots to discover. With it still being within the UK it’s easier to cut down on travel time, especially if you have a fussy baby.

There are lots of secluded holiday cottages to let down here which are great for families with crying babies and boisterous loud toddlers. If you choose accommodation close to the beach it’s practically a free day out also. Cornwall has lots of places visit like Newquay Zoo and the Minack Theatre, which is based in Porthcurno and features comedy puppet shows for kids.

Child Friendly Holiday Destinations For New Parents - Perranporth Cornwall

You also have The Eden Project and Dairyland to explore and have fun. But for me the best place to visit in Cornwall is the beach. Cornwall has many beaches with different facilities at each. My favourite is Perranporth, not only is it just 10 minutes from my house but it’s very child-friendly as well. The car park is literally beside the beach so great with the kids. It’s a very sandy beach with a pub on the beach as well as a restaurant and a little bistro overlooking the sea.

Holiday prep: have you got everything? What about insurance?

The number of people going abroad for their holidays has grown from 55% to 57% according to the ABTA Holiday Habits report of 2017. Indeed, holidays have become less of a luxury and more of a lifestyle option. But are we forgetting something? Are we taking out travel insurance before we go, and if so, what exactly does it cover? With work accident solicitor group, True Solicitors, we take a look at the facts.

Travel Insurance - Are we taking out travel insurance before we go, and if so, what exactly does it cover?

Why do some people skip insurance?

ABTA reported that 25% of people going on holiday didn’t take out insurance in the months leading up to May 2017. This is 3% more than May 2016’s data. However, this differed between age ranges but was commonly problematic among young people travelling abroad.

31% of 18-24-year-olds went abroad without insurance in May 2016. This figure increased by 9% in the following year. 25-34-year-olds were also guilty of this risky move, with 31% of jet-setters not insured in 2016 — growing to 38% in 2017.
