Day Trips

  • Cool camping

    Have you given a thought to summer camping yet? Those yurts, lodges and cool glampy sites get booked up waaaaay in advance, so to give you the early heads up, here are the 25 best places to start your search, as chosen by the people in the know –  the regional Muddy editors. STAY IN…BERKSHIRE […]

  • Get your Mothering Sunday Sorted!

    Everywhere gets so darn booked up for Mothering Sunday – as you’ll know, if you’ve ever spent the week before desperately trying to nab a restaurant reservation only to find it’s Burger King or bust. So in the interests of being super-organized, we’ve decided to get in there early this year with our guide to […]

    • On yer bike!

      Well hellooo there bum cheeks! You made yourselves known after a two-hour bike trail in Bedgebury Pinetum this weekend. Someone get me a bag of frozen peas! Okay, so I’m half joking – we quite enjoy a family bike ride in the Muddy family and obviously I have buns of *cough* steel. But mine had […]

    • Want a weekend escape by the sea?

      One of the big benefits of Muddy tottering its way into so many counties (er, 17 since you asked!) is that we have a raft of on-the-ground experts, squirrelling out the coolest, most useful stuff for the rest of us to plunder. Case in point – beach cottages. Thought about renting one this summer? Yeah […]

      • Valentine’s Day:

        Valentine’s Day is fast approaching (wahhhhh!). I always find it a tricky one to plan for, do you? I’m not massively keen on sitting in a restaurant along with a million other couples, gazing into each other’s eyes (Naff) playing romance-by-rote, being handed a soggy rose (Naff. And if you’re gonna do it, get me […]

      • Sunday roasts with the most

        Quite frankly the only thing likely to entice me outside at this time of year is a cosy Kent pub, roaring fire and good old Sunday roast. Sometimes we squeeze in a quick walk first (if we’re feeling particularly game and I’m wearing the prerequisite double-sock-layer-system). Afterwards we seek out the ultimate reward – mouth-watering meats, glorious […]

        • Muddy eats: The Barrow House

          Yup, it’s pretty chilly at the mo, but if anything can lure me outside it is a scenic stroll and a roaring pub fire. And it was on one of those gloriously clear, yet crisp, days that I discovered this perfect walk/lunch combo at The Barrow House, a gorgeous new pub in Egerton from the team behind ever […]

        • The best way to spend a festive Sunday with the family!

          I’ll admit it, most of our weekends are taken up with taxi-ing the mudlets to various clubs or birthday parties and dealing with housework, homework and hangovers. But every now and then I insist on a day trip that takes us away from the routine of the rat race. Which is how we ended up at […]
