Kids

  • Is your baby the cutest?

    Here's how they can be Baby of the Month at Photo-times while you pocket £200 of John Lewis vouchers...

  • Swanning around in Lamport

    The Swan at Lamport - gorgeous countryside, family friendly and super tasty; a true Northamptonshire favourite and it's perfect location for a gentle, post Sunday lunch amble at nearby Brixworth or Pitsford.

  • Waendel walking on sunshine

    Muddy looks forward to this weekend for lots of reasons. It's dog and kid friendly, you don't have to be super-fit to take part, and there are numerous watering holes on every route

  • Muddy walks: Irchester Country Park

    It has an adventure course with zip lines, a huge outdoor play area, a cafe and a network of trails in a 200-acre area of woodland. What's not to like?

  • Rock up and climb!

    I tried out rock climbing at Rushden Lakes, perfect for any age (even mine) and I jumped off a 7m wall!

  • Winchester House School, Brackley, Northants

    An excellent non-selective co-ed day and boarding school (3-13 yrs) on the Bucks/Oxon/Northants borders with a strong all-rounder reputation and an impressive head.

  • 360 Soft Play in Half Term?!

    We sent a pair of trusted Mudlets to the new 360 play at Rushden Lakes to try it out and give it the real Muddy verdict!

  • Children and tech: an alternative view

    Tech often gets a bad rap - see how it beguiles our children into gaming for 8 hours a day, for a start. But a recent interview made me see things a little differently - and it might do the same for you.

  • It’s playtime at Rushden Lakes!

    Just when you thought Rushden Lakes had it all. This new play area is bound to get the Mudlets buzzing!

  • Northampton High School

    Muddy says: a vibrant and friendly all girls school. Northampton High School caters to the individual needs of each girl and encourages them to achieve their best in all areas (whatever that may be).
