Friday finds! Things we love...extreme parks! and Secret Escapes!

We had a week "staycationing" last week and made 2 exciting discoveries- an extreme park experience in Stoke Newington, and a great website offering discounts on luxurious holidays (maybe just for 2...)

If you are feeling jaded with standard swings and slides the head over to Clissold Park in Stoke Newington for an extreme park experience. In the last 12 months £9m of Heritage Lottery Fund and Hackney Council money have been spent on restoring the park and the house.



A huge park area is dedicated to spills and thrills for toddlers to tweens, with a large number and variety of climbing structure,  slides, tree houses, pirate ships, and sand play. You can easily lose an hour in the play area as your children hurl themselves up, down and around. If you are not exhausted from that, head over to visit the aviary, butterfly tunnel and animal enclosure including deer, goats and chickens. In the summer there's a large paddling pool to cool off in. And of course great coffee and cakes in the newly restored Mansion House cafe.
