Hever Castle - Family Days out
Updated: Jul 24, 2020
Hever Castle is the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, second wife of Henry VIII, the castle which had belonged to her family since 1462.
But there have been 37 owners of Hever Castle from 13 different families.
Hever Castle is definitely a castle worth visiting, the grounds are breathtakingly beautiful.
There are several packages on offer that works for the whole family or for just you! The staff are incredibly helpful & friendly.
Like most of the world, Hever Castle reopens it’s doors on the 4th July.

I have attached the link to Hever Castle below:
I‘m a total Tudor fan, I can’t get enough of movies, shows and documentaries, so if you too are a fan, I highly recommend a visit.
Ann Boleyn, who happens to be one of my favourite wives, her personality and wittiness captured my attention at first glance, so it’s no surprise I’m blabbing on.(Ok, I’ll stop now)

My name is Joanna, a wife & mother of two, on an adventure called life. I'm founder of JoannaLampejo.com. I started blogging at the beginning of the year, I'm start up entrepreneur, with the desire to spend more time with my family whilst exploring personal financial sustainability. We love travelling, learning about different cultures and are massive foodies.
Creating memories with my tribe is a complete and utter joy.
All while trying to adopt an intentional way of living life. As I intentionally evolve & explore through this journey, I hope to bring you along with as I embrace the process and not the end product.
What do I blog about?
I mostly write about being a homemaker, motherhood and personal development, we are massive explores, who love travelling, eating good food, cooking and are always seeking for opportunities to learn & grow. Blogging and vlogging are a way for me to express myself and most of all look back at all the adventures & memories we create.
Cara is a threenager going on 14 and is the heart of all of our adventures, she never wants to stop having fun. Cara loves baking, cooking, cleaning and is obsessed with learning new things, she is super cheeky and is always ready for a laugh. Cara has the perfect balance of loving the outdoors and when we are indoors, she's either baking, wanting to cook or wants to do some kind of DIY. Cara is a girl after my own heart!
CoCo - Alexender:
Alexander, who we call CoCo as a nickname.
(Cara actually came up with his nickname and it has just stuck)
CoCo is One years old and is the total opposite of Cara, he would rather stay at home all day and break things and then fix them again. He is a typical cheeky chappy and absolutely loves a laugh. CoCo has for sure brought a balance to me as a mother, he has totally softened me up we all absolutely adore him and we think he knows that.
