Hello, I’m Eleanor, a mother of two, writer, blogger and, big fan of Bristol. I live with my husband, two kids and our dog just south of the city. My daughter is coming up to four years old, and my son was born in October 2016.
Welcome to the Bristol Parent – a site which I hope will become a great resource for locals and visitors to Bristol and the South West of England who are always looking for a new answer to the question “what shall we do today?”.
On The Bristol Parent you’ll find reviews of places to go, adventure, eat and explore. I also write about travel and adventure – mostly with kids, sometimes without.
I love the outdoors, walking mostly, gardens and woods in particular. I’m a huge advocate for any sort of reading whether it be to or for kids, or for me. I love music, coffee, bad jokes, dogs and horses. We are doing up our house, slowly. We also have a hairy pal, a black Labrador called Mack.
I also write for Buzzfeed (some examples here and here), Talkmum (examples here and here). I was recently named one of the top Bristolians to follow on Twitter by Best of Bristol. The Bristol Parent is in the Tots 100 Top 500, and in the top 250 of the KidRated Parent Blogger index.
