For the average family, getting away on holiday is a massive expense and a luxury lots can't afford, but for Britain's biggest family, the Radfords – complete with 22 kids – it's a regular event.
Sue Radford, mum of the 22, and her husband Noel whisked their children away for an action-packed and fun-filled weekend in a luxury £40,000 motorhome – affectionately known to the family as Betsy.
The time away for the large family, who boast 517k followers on Instagram, is the 19th holiday they've enjoyed in less than two years. They've also recently enjoyed making family memories on a usually once-in-a-lifetime holiday in Florida, which at the time was their 18th holiday in 20 months.
Their motorhome holiday came right after the couple's daughter, Millie, 22, gave birth to her third child, Elodie-Jade, last week.
Sue was the first to comment on Millie's Instagram post, saying: "Aww Millie she's just so beautiful. I’m so proud of you you did amazing bringing her into the world. Thank you so much for asking me to be with you. Love you Xxx"
Sue was a birthing partner for Millie, despite their rumoured rowing.
The wholesome time away together sweetly welcomed in the new season with Sue sharing her new autumnal mugs for her fans, all set for cosy campervan nights in with hot chocolate.
Like any other family, once settled in and unpacked a little, the family headed for bike rides, with the attentive mum head shouting: "Just don’t go too fast down the hill, and don’t forget to use your brakes."
Dad Noel was also on hand to lead the fun, setting up a swing ball set with poor Sue admitting to being accidentally hit in the head when they played, saying she "should have ducked."
As the family tucked into classic camping grub on their camping chairs, Sue said on her Instagram: "We had such a lovely weekend away, we didn’t vlog as things have been so full on since getting back from holiday, we just needed this weekend to recharge. Also I think you must be getting sick of motorhome vlogs."
With a busy mum-life, Sue clearly enjoys planning fun times away from home, adding that she already has her thinking cap on for family fun during the upcoming half term school holidays.
The mum from Lancashire revealed that she's hoping for a Haven Holidays trip for the seven-day break, but a location was yet to be decided.
The bumper brood love a trip away. Since December 2021 they've been to Cornwall twice, the Lake District four times, Disney World three times and a luxurious trip to Lapland. They've also enjoyed theme park adventures in Legoland and Alton Towers, Scotland, New York and France in the last 12 months, and the happily married couple also jetted off to the Maldives.
Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 34, Sophie, 29, Chloe, 28, Jack, 26, Daniel, 24, Luke, 22, Millie, 22, Katie, 20, James, 19, Ellie, 18, Aimee, 17, Josh, 16, Max, 14, Tillie, 13, Oscar, 11, Casper, 10, Hallie, eight, Phoebe, seven, Archie, six, Bonnie, four, and Heidie, three.
Sadly the couple's 17th child Alfie was still born on July 6, 2014.
