Can’t believe its February already and gosh what a busy month this has been. I’ve had no time to even think about Valentine’s Day, although we are having a family weekend away to Sprowston Manor in Norwich which should be good fun and I shall treat myself to a well deserved massage in their beautiful spa! My eldest (now just 5) has definite ideas of what a good holiday must include. Top on her list is a pool, beach and pancakes! Not sure if we’ll get the latter, but I’m just hoping for a tiny bit of sun.

Anyway, looking ahead, Easter is not far off and even summer availability is booking up fast at some of our favourite places. Take a look at the options below and give yourself something truly exciting to look forward.
