Thanks for stopping by to find out more about Devon with Kids. I’m, Claire, a family travel blogger with nearly 20 years experience in the media and public relations industries.

I’ve always loved writing and have spent my whole career following this passion. Travel blogging came about when I was made redundant while pregnant with my first daughter in 2012. Blogging was a way to keep on writing with purpose and bring in my other love, travel.
I now manage Tin Box Traveller – an award-winning website focussed on family holidays and days out in the UK, Europe and beyond – as well as Devon with Kids. I also run my own freelance content creation and copywriting business to support small businesses and travel brands.
Types of collaboration I’ll consider – please read
Here on Devon with Kids, I’ll consider reviewing relevant products and experiences, supporting brand campaigns or creating sponsored content. If you want to work with me this might include, but is not limited to:
- advertorial blog posts here on the Devon with Kids website
- social media posts on the Devon with Kids Facebook page, Instagram and Twitter accounts
- advertising in the Devon with Kids Facebook group
- giveaways on any of the platforms above
- video creation (see below).
I can put together bespoke advertising packages to meet your objectives and budget. Just send me your brief!
Please note that I do not write about general parenting topics or cover kids clubs or groups. However, I am happy to do so for other websites or blogs. Find out how you can employ me through my freelance content and copywriting business.
Please do not be offended if I ask for fair compensation for my time and expenses.
All sponsored posts and reviews will be clearly marked as such in line with ASA rules and I will always share my honest opinions. Please read my disclosure policy.
As well as writing blog and social media posts I also create videos. You can see the full collection on my Tin Box Traveller YouTube channel.
Here’s a selection from our adventures in Devon:
Expert travel comment in the media and on industry blogs
I’m regularly asked for views and advice that other parents might find helpful when planning holidays and days out with their children.
This has recently included talking about school holiday days out and activities on BBC Radio Devon, lockdown advice for other travelling mums for Teletext Holidays, comment on virtual travel for Dolphin Holidays, suggestions for The Sun about budget meals for caravanning, as well as contributions to holiday park blogs about camping and caravanning.
Family travel speaker
I have presented on the topic of family travel at the Caravan, Camping & Motorhome Show and am available for speaking opportunities on travel with kids and as an expert speaker on travel blogging.
