Haven holiday at Perran Sands, Cornwall

Inside: A look at our Haven holiday at Perran Sands in Cornwall Holidays have always meant going abroad for me, being able to escape the British weather and explore the wonderful world we live in. But that has meant that we’ve totally overlooked the beauty that the British countryside has to offer! Over the last few years, we have come to …

Our weekend of fun with Haven, Devon Cliffs Park

Inside: A look at our weekend at Devon Cliffs with Haven I was never an outdoorsy person, much preferring to snuggle up inside and read a book than go out and make mudpies. Having children has changed all of that (and marrying an outdoor-loving man probably contributed!). These days you can still find me snuggled up reading, but only after …

My birthday weekend at Center Parcs Elveden Forest

Inside: Our weekend break at Center Parcs Elveden Forest I wrote about how important family time was to me a while back and how actually with the busy lives we lead, we don’t always make enough effort to see our loved ones – even when they live just around the corner!

Passford House Hotel, The New Forest

A couple of weekends ago we travelled down to The New Forest for a mini break. Such a gorgeous part of the country – if you’ve never been then you really must try and get down. We left at the crack of dawn the Saturday morning and spent most of the day cycling around, exploring the woods. Feeling pretty exhausted …

Exploring The New Forest | Weekend Away

Over the last few months I have come to realise that we live in the most beautiful country, we just fail to see it most of the time. The UK gets quite a bad rep with having changeable weather but it is that weather that gives it the beauty isn’t it? Last weekend we were invited down to explore The …
