In 2015, with a small baby and a toddler in tow, Lucy Easthope and her husband Tom – a pilot – took an overnight trip to Alton Towers in Staffordshire.

She had gone there a lot as a child and loved it, and now there was newly opened tree-house accommodation, CBeebies Land, and a great swimming pool to explore.
