Travelling on the spectrum

Last weekend we had a trip down to Peppa Pig World at Paultons Park thanks to the Family Fund charity. We had an overnight stay which is always a fear of mine with two children on the spectrum. I usually won’t go anywhere for short periods as they’re too stressful (for me) and very unsettling for children (and me!) At home I use a stair gate to keep them in their bedroom and prevent ‘wandering’ but in a hotel room you don’t get that luxury! This however was a special case, B is in love with Peppa and her friends so we (including grandparents for extra hands) made the trip down from the midlands.  

Here we go!
 I have to admit that Paultons Park and PPW is fantastic! I was so impressed with how accessible it is, the exit passes so we didn’t have to queue (B can’t cope with queues,) the larger child/adult changing facilities and the flat wheelchair friendly site. We even took her on the mini train in her chair which she adored!

 All in all the trip was a great success and I’m glad we bit the bullet and made the  journey, we even stopped off at a very windy beach on the way down!  

Wind and sand are two of B’s favourites!

L loved the windy beach can you tell šŸ˜‰
Thank you Family Fund, Travel by Inspire and of course Paultons Park!

While in the hotel we used our trusty tent for B which we use at home in lieu of a Safety Sleeper which were struggling to get funded. If anyone knows of a side opening one man tent then please let me know! Ours was only Ā£20 but it’s a nightmare to change the sheets and get her in and out!  

Two beds and a tent!
This is what we’re looking for!

    1. I actually looked at this yesterday and was tempted by the price! The problem that I have at the moment is that ours is too wide being a two man so if she rolls at night she ends up on the floor lol as her mattress is a single xx
