I was invited to Chicheley Hall for a one night stay in a superior room. The visit included a complimentary room, evening meal in their restaurant and breakfast the following morning. I was under no obligation to create a blog post from the visit. All opinions expressed in this post are my own. As you […]
5 beautiful nature spots in North Wales

5 beautiful nature spots in North Wales

3rd June 2019 No Comment
OK, so I’m totally fangirling about Wales right now – particularly north Wales. We went there for a week-long family break last month and I honestly think it’s so underrated! Every time I told someone where we were going it was usually met with some degree of confusion as it’s possibly not the most obvious […]

Scaling Snowdon – the highest mountain in Wales

Snowdon – the highest mountain in Wales at an elevation of 1,085 metres above sea level. It’s also one of the highest mountains in the whole of the UK and features as one of the climbs in the famous Three Peaks challenge (the other two being Ben Nevis in Scotland and Scafell Pike in England). […]

The Falkland Arms, Great Tew

We had a lovely end to 2018 when we went for the first of what will hopefully be many weekend walks in the Cotswolds. The Cotswolds is a beautiful region of England and it’s not too far for us to drive there from our home in Northamptonshire. We took a circular walk around the Great […]

Birthday celebrations at Fawsley Hall Spa Hotel, Northamptonshire

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. I think this is our closest stately-home spa and my cousin had also bought us a gift voucher for […]

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 […]

7 food stops not to miss on the NC500

We just got back from our amazing holiday doing the North Coast 500 (NC500) route in Scotland. For me, a major highlight of our NC500 trip was the huge range of amazing food options scattered throughout the route. I’d already read about a few of the places and had identified them as good stops for […]

Hoar Cross Hall Spa Hotel, Staffordshire, England

I first visited Hoar Cross Hall Spa Hotel for my 16th birthday with my Mum. I remember that I’d been looking forward to it for over a year, ever since I’d heard that she’d been there with some friends. So that was it, my ‘sweet sixteen’ treat was my first ever spa retreat. I didn’t […]

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 […]
Dartmouth, England

Dartmouth, England

17th April 2017 No Comment
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 […]
