#CountryKids Broad Haven beach Pembrokeshire

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

One of best things about our holiday was the beach at Broad Haven itself. It was just 100 metres from our hostel:

As soon as we reached the village the first thing my children wanted to do was head straight to the beach:

A lack of swimming gear and towels was not a deterrent to my son heading into the surf:

Single with Kids in Broad Haven

I got back last night from co-ordinating a Single With Kids in Broad Haven, Pembrokeshire. Having been on a variety of their trips to hotels and camping it was exciting to be left in charge for a week! We were staying at the Youth Hostel and had exclusive use of it for 6 nights.

It took me back to have to make my own bed in the room! We were in a 7 bunk room with just the 3 of us an en suite wet room/toilet. The hostel was really close to the beach:

We had so much fun including a sunset walk on the beach:

#CountryKids a day on the Blackpool beach and promenade

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

One thing we have all missed after moving from Hastings to Kendal 4 years ago is the sea. So it was great to head to the most famous seaside resort in the North West - Blackpool. Its just over an hour away from us which isn't far for a day trip. I obtained parking tips from Twitter (on street near the airport), packed our swimming kit and off we went. It's all so well signposted even without a navigator.

As advised we took a tram as we were almost at the far end of the promenade. It was a reasonable £4.50 for the 3 of us to go all the way to Central Pier. This was my children's first tram ride and it was a nice way to arrive. The children's priority was the beach so we set up base on the steps next to the pier:

As it was mid week the beach was pretty quiet even though it was boiling hot! The tide was on the ebb so there was plenty of sand:

#CountryKids: Postcard from Brittany Number 1

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

It really seems a lifetime away but here are some of the fab things we got up to in Brittany (one of which was not the basic squat loos on the autoroute!):

Watching sun rise over the English Channel

Giant hot dogs for a belated breakfast

Intriguing sculptures at motorway stop

Played table tennis

Had fun on the waterslides

Watched bizarre French/English entertainment
Played on the beach at Carnac

Swam in the Atlantic Ocean

Looked in rock pools

Discovered that steak hache et frites was burger and chips

Ate a few galettes

Drank some cider

Jumped waves at sunset

And that was just the first couple of days! More to follow...
