The perfect tonic for tired mums and dads, Deborah recommends the best places to visit and things to do to make excursions a little easier. From her instagram blog, @thebristolbaby, Deborah reviews Clevedon as a place for the whole family.

“I found out about the Clevedon Sunday Market on Instagram, and as a lover of all things local and handmade decided to pay a visit to the BEAUTIFUL town of Clevedon to see what it had to offer.”
“The market stalls at the Clevedon Sunday Market were dotted around various locations in Clevedon, and my family and I had a really lovely few hours enjoying the beautiful products created by local makers. I got the chance to chat to the lovely ladies from Grace and Hartland to learn about their 100% natural kitchen-counter creations, and I found out about the work produced by Shelli Graham of Yeti Spaghetti who produces beautiful hand drawn products.”

 “We then took a walk along the stunning Clevedon Pier. You pay a small fee and can return all day. The pier itself is absolutely beautiful, and it transports you back to times of old with its beautiful wooden walkway and traditional lanterns. There are coffee stops at both ends and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view.”
“My toddler was both thrilled and terrified at seeing the sea through the wooden walkway, but she soon warmed up, running safely along the length of the pier. Our newborn was in the pram throughout as the pier is completely accessible so everyone could enjoy the experience.”
“I’d definitely recommend visiting Clevedon as a family. It has beautiful independent shops at the top of the hill, with plenty of places to enjoy a coffee and take in the gorgeous views. This is definitely a firm @thebristolbaby favourite.”
