Unfortunately Mr Tentsniffer is more of a Hotel-lover than a tentsniffer and so while we share a marriage we rarely share a tent! Which just goes to show that time apart is at least as important as time together.
But whether you and your beloved camp together or spend weekends apart, and even if you have no significant other, if you like festivals, fields and fun of a historical nature you need to be thinking about England's Medieval Festival who are also celebrating their 25th Anniversary this year! (and if you are celebrating 25 years of marriage too - click the link as there are some FREE tickets available for you!)
So an extra special festival of historical fun and frolics in the English countryside is planned in August and it's not something you should miss. I went for the first time last year, and can vouch for the relaxed nature, the wealth of shopping experiences, the delicious mead and the excellent entertainment for kids and adults alike!
The more warlike of your kids may enjoy sword school or archery, or even axe throwing! While the gentler children can watch puppet shows, magic shows, and laugh (from a safe distance) at the mud theatre.
Tickets are available for weekend camping, (and I advise this as there is lots to see and do and you really need more than one day, plus it's camping!!) glamping, and day visits. Use my special discount code MUMS10 to get 10% off your ticket price! (enter the code at the checkout) and if you book early you will get early bird discount too! (early bird prices valid until 31st March but 10% off code works anytime)
Dogs are allowed and medieval dress is encouraged.
