Lynette Lowthian

Lynette LowthianLynette Lowthian is editor of Right Start, a family-life magazine for parents of children up to seven, offering support and advice on all those ‘must know’ family issues, including education, health and healthy eating, child behaviour and best buys. Right Start features two key travel features each year: one on short breaks and another on main family holidays. Every destination is sampled by Lynette or one of her team, so she has lots of experience in  testing and reviewing family holidays. Tumble Tots mums and dads will have seen the magazine..

Lynette has two older children of her own and a gang of nieces and nephews!

 

Lynette's Favourite Holiday

My fave holiday is our annual extended-family exodus to Salcombe in Devon. For years my mum has rented a lovely Edwardian house overlooking the harbour for the week before Easter. In all that time, the family has kept on growing – there are now 18 of us, ranging from a soon-to-be-born to an 80-year-old. Mealtimes are chaotic and rather competitive, as all the families try to outdo each other and produce the top nosh! 

My brother has a battered little boat to take us all across the estuary to the beautiful beaches on the other side (with ferry crossing costing £1 each way, it would work out at £40 every time we all went across!). There’s always someone who wants to play a round of cricket or create a sculpture in the sand. The ‘next generation’ love to watch us grown-ups behave like kids, squabbling over who built the best castle…
