Since becoming an Auntie I have really appreciated being self-employed as it means I get to spend lots of time with my Nephews, along with my Sister and Mum. We are always off on days out and so I thought I would share some of our favourites! First up has to be YORKSHIRE WILDLIFE PARK! (Doncaster) We first went when Dougie was a teeny tot. Although he was a little too young to appreciate his surroundings fully, we all LOVED it! We soon decided to get an annual pass to allow us to go whenever we liked and Dougie had free entry until he turned 3!
Next up is somewhere we go quite often and lots of my clients will know this is a favourite place of mine for children's outdoor photoshoots too! GRAVES PARK is local to us (Norton, Sheffield) and somewhere I can remember visiting as a child myself!
Graves Park has many options and before Dougie arrived we regularly visited with our Labradors and walked through the woods. We never park in the main car park (around £1 per hour) as we like a little walk first.
Dougie's favourite thing about Graves Park is the new addition of the Go Karts which are £1 a go - I usually get the backseat driver role!
As mentioned previously Dougie isn't hugely bothered by the animals but there are plenty to see especially for a Free Entry Farm! You can buy food for some of them too.
POSITIVES OF GRAVES...
When we fancy some really good coffee and grub we head to FORGE DAM CAFE and have a little walk through the woods, throw rocks into the river shouting 'PLONK' and then head to the park. I always remember the slide here from being a little girl! We have lunch in the cafe - they serve the BEST sausage rolls. We usually buy some duck food here too!
