Meet The Travel Blogger - Devon Mama

Devon Mama is run by Hayley - a 30-year-old mama, wife and recovering sleep addict. Living with my husband, baby and the world’s bounciest dog in rural Devon, She can usually be found attempting to cook, Googling everything and embracing the strange new world that is parenting. Add in a house with ‘a lot of potential’ and a return to my ‘real’ job as a Company Director and it’s organised chaos at the best of times.

What's the name of your blog?

My blog is called Devon Mama (, I felt it summed up who I was and gave people an idea of what to expect… I’m a mum, I live in Devon!

Meet The Travel Blogger - Tillys Travelling Telegram

I love reading about different people's travel ideas, there are so many places to visit and everyone's idea of a holiday is different, I have asked some different travel bloggers to share their ideas of holidaying with or without their families. So over the next few weeks, we will feature some amazing bloggers, please check them out, follow and like them. To kick start it all off, we are starting with highlighting our blogs and the travel that we love to do.

What's the name of your blog? and

Why did you start it up? I started the travel blog because Tilly wanted to travel in Europe in the summer and I thought a new travel blog for our adventures was in order.

Cut Price Train Tickets And How To Get Them.

Train prices seem to be increasing all the time, yet the travel isn't improving! We travel on the trains quite a lot and all the time we are asked how we manage to use the train all the time. So here are a few tips on getting the cheapest price on your train tickets. After all, do we really want to give the train companies too much money? This post was originally written for our other blog

9 Places To Visit In Whilst You're In Kent

Kent has so many different places to visit, It has so many hidden gems and you don't have to pay a fortune to have a good day out at some of the places we feature on here. We are lucky to be able to live in the ''Garden of England'' and we have so much to do on our own doorstep!

Dover Castle

This Castle was built by Henry 11, but was used more by Henry V11. It can be found on Castle Hill overlooking Dover and is well worth a visit. It will cost you £19.40 for an adult and £11.60 for a child but you are better off buying a yearly membership for £54 for a year and you can go to all the English heritage places over a whole year. Dover castle history covers hundreds of years and goes right up until the second world war. There is a lot of history and we can never get it all done in one day, so we do parts of it at a time. There is something for people of all ages to do and the view of Dover port is magnificent from Admiralty lookout.

Family things to do in New York City

I have been lucky to go to New York with my older kids, it is on my list of things to do with Tilly but it hasn't happened yet! We went a few years ago and the digital camera that I took was very poor quality and I have made the choice to fill the post with images from Pixabay. Here is a list of family friendly things to do in NYC.

The Rockefeller Building

Of course one of the most iconic things to do when you're visiting New York is to go up the Empire State building, but me being me I like to do things differently. When we went to New York we were only there for five days so everything had to be crammed in, I didn't want to be waiting hours in a queue to get up the Empire State building. So we chose to go up the Rockefeller building, not only was it cheaper but there was so much less of a queue to get in. You get the views just like you would if you went up the Empire State building at a better price. To get to the Top Of the Rock, it will cost you $34 for adults, $28 for children 6-12 years of age and $32 for OAPs. Its open from 8 am - Midnight, daily and can be found at 30 Rockefeller Plaza New York, NY
