REVIEW: Blackpool - something for everyone, come rain or shine!
For this single mum and teenage daughter, the opportunity to spend some quality time together is few and far between, so when we were offered the chance of a weekend break to Blackpool we jumped at it, and it was non-stop laughter and fun from start to finish.
Slightly trepidatious at driving into a wooded area as heavy snow was predicted we arrived at Forest Holidays heartened at the spacious and welcoming cabin that awaited us and cranked-up the log burner.
Now that the leaves have turned, the temperature has dropped and much-loved programmes such as Autumnwatch and Blue Planet II have returned to our screens - the nation’s love for wildlife has been rekindled and there has never been a better time to get out and explore nature at its very best.
“Only six people from Britain have travelled through this year,” Stig Grytting informs me as I gorge on a divinely succulent and gargantuan serving of lambs legs selected from his own animal stock at the 700-year-old medieval farm hotel he runs with his family in Eastern Norway.
