Jenny (editor and founder)
Jenny is a full-time travel blogger and content creator who lives in Bakewell in the Peak District with her husband and two boys. Before she turned her hand to blogging back in 2016, she worked in online mapping and musical theatre (quite a combo!)
In February 2019, Jenny launched Peak District Kids to help families get the most out of their Peak District adventures. The website has grown to be the top resource for families visiting the National Park with hundreds of thousands of page views each month. There’s also a Peak District Kids FB group of over 24k members, which supports the website.
Jenny is also the editor of the popular adventure family travel blog – TraveLynn Family – where she shares her epic family travels across the globe. This is a family who thrives on adventure and off the beaten track travels. Jenny and her family have lived in India and Morocco, trekked the Himalayas, traversed Africa in a Land Rover, backpacked Southeast Asia, and regularly road trip Europe in their Mazda Bongo.
And there’s also a third travel blog – Explore Essaouira – the go-to online resource for visitors to the beautiful Moroccan coastal town of Essaouira, Morocco.
But the Peak District is the place she calls home and Jenny loves nothing more than a long walk over the hills with her boys to a pub for lunch. Jenny is a huge advocate for getting kids outside in nature as much as possible, and forging a path away from the expected conveyor-belt of life.
