Birthday celebrations at Fawsley Hall Spa Hotel, Northamptonshire

4th May 2018 No Comment
My then-boyfriend (now-fiance – more on this in another post soon!) John’s birthday is at the start of April, so last month my gift to him was a spa break at Fawsley Hall near Daventry, Northamptonshire.

A winter weekend away in Yorkshire

4th February 2018 No Comment
A couple of weekends ago we headed up to Cropton in Yorkshire, where we stayed in a cabin in the woods, complete with hot tub. We’d stayed with the same company, Forest Holidays a couple of years ago in January in the Forest of Dean, and we enjoyed it so much we thought it was […]

I’ve done a lot of travel with work over the last few months, so now I’m home for a while it’s time for me to start exploring more of my local area. I live in a rural part of the country, just down the road from Stowe in Buckinghamshire. This pretty little village is home […]

This year, we spent a few days before Easter in Dartmouth, on the south coast of England. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and I’d highly recommend a stop in this quaint little seaside town if you’re planning a trip to this part of the world. Dartmouth is located (unsurprisingly) at the mouth of the River […]
