If you would like to get in touch to discuss a project or to find out about marketing/advertising opportunities with Baby Routes please drop me a line and I will be happy to forward you my media kit. 

I am always open to creating great outdoor, travel and wildlife related content and social media campaigns and reviewing activities, tourist attractions, accommodation and outdoor/travel kit.

Upcoming trips for 2018 include Scotland, the Lake District, France, Spain & Italy.

I particularly enjoy ‘blogger in residence’ style projects and visiting new places (or familiar places from an outdoorsy and alternative perspective such as our trip to Los Angeles). This usually involves publishing a range of family friendly walks, reviews and days out based in the area.

I am also open to writing for third party media  – Baby Routes has been featured in regional, national and travel publications, including Waitrose Weekend, Mother & Baby & Condor Ferries magazine.

Do get in touch if you think we might be able to work together – I look forward to hearing from you.

    Would it be possible to get an authorization to use the photo of Haremere Hall manor we found on your web site. It would be included in a small film that will be presented on November 1st 2014 to the members of Louis Tetreau’s descendants association, in Québec, Canada. This special day will honor Tetreault men who served as military during WW1 and WW2. Aaccording to the military file,Armand Tetreault died in this manor, on January 1st 19432, and never came back to his family. We thank you in advance for your precious contribution to our project.

    1. Hello! Thanks for your comment and great to hear of your project. I have replied in full via email.

  1. Hi,

    Would I have permission to reference your website by name and adding a link to your site on one of my blogs? We are a new outdoor sports focused site and i’m doing a quick blog on child friendly walks and I’m sourcing a handful of really good sites for people to use as reference (this is not a site review, just links to useful information).

    With thanks

    Karen Hickton

    1. Hi Karen, Yes of course – please feel free. I’m glad you find the site worthy of sharing! Regards, Kate

  2. Hi,

    Is it ok to link back to your blog for toddler friendly walks? Do you have an area page for UK, South West?

    Our page lists alot of walks but nothing specific to toddler friendly. If you have done any of the walks and rate them or have any members that have, i would be delighted to feature that rating?

    Any help or advice gratefully received.

    1. Hi Leanne, Very happy for you to link up. The walks page is – I don’t have a regional page, just split roughly into counties or national parks but the map view should be helpful. Kate

    Hello, I. Visiting London hopefully this coming February half term week with my just turned 5 year old and my just turned 3 year old. I will be traveling around with them both on my own the wed thur fri then meeting my hubby the sat sun. I have a light weight stroller type but also have a beco gemani carrier. Am I best to carry my little boy on my back with the carrier or in the stroller/pushchair?
    Thank you

    1. Hi Debbie, it really depends on what you are most used to and how much underground travel you are planning to do. Personally I much prefer using a carrier as it means I have hands free to hold my eldest’s hand and it’s a lot easier on the tube, especially those stations without great step-free access. Also, given half-term is likely to be pretty busy in museums and the like, a stroller might make it trickier negotiating crowded areas. If you’re walking loads though or find your carrier at all uncomfortable (especially with a 3 yo) then a lightweight stroller would probably be fine. Just be prepared to not over-stuff the bottom so you can fold it up fast for nipping up stairs or on crowded buses. Hope this helps a bit and have a wonderful trip. Kate

    I made a short visit to Pembrokeshire earlier in the year and spent a couple of very enjoyable hours up at the Foel Drygarn camp; the walk to which you have included on your excellent site. As you say a lovely wild place, which to me, made the Preselis feel much more like mountains than hills.
    Anyway, it inspired the few lines below which I wondered if you might enjoy.

    Foel Drygarn

    A short steep walk to the camp.
    Windy, wild and lovely.
    Smoke from heather-burning in the distance
    lit sporadically as the sun found gaps in the cloud cover.
    Then coffee from a flask in the shelter of an outcrop.
    Courting ravens riding a panicked wind,
    added to the wildness of the place.

    PS. I enjoyed your Tolkien reference as well 🙂

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment and for taking the time to share your poem. It is very evocative and brings back memories of a very special place. So glad you loved this wild and wonderful part of the world as much as I did. Kate

    Hi Kate

    I thought your readers ought to know that Scottish Borders Council are currently considering a planning application to build 26 houses at The Croft, the field behind Cherrytrees nursery, on Dingleton Road, Melrose, creeping up the foot of the iconic Eildon Hills.

    Any walkers who are concerned about the impact a housing estate of this size could have on the stunning beauty of the Eildons, or local residents worried that this is the thin end of the developers planned wedge (they own land beside and above this planned development), should be sure to make their voices heard and submit their views to the council as soon as possible.

    You can make your objection by emailing SBC’s planning department at, using the planning reference 18/01385/FUL

    There’s a Facebook group with more info here:

    Many thanks for any pressure you can bring to bear.

    All the best, and thanks for the baby walks!
