Adventures // Our Hampshire Adventure, Part Two

Following on from yesterday’s post… A couple of weeks ago we were invited to stay in Hampshire by the lovely folk at Hampshire’s Top Attractions. Our second full day in Hampshire was truly beautiful. We had a better sleep the second night, and breakfast the next morning was just as delicious! After visiting Waitrose to pick up picnic goodies, we headed to our destination – Exbury Gardens. I had been looking forward to this adventure ever since the ticket arrived in  ...

Adventures // Our Hampshire Adventure, Part One

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to stay in Hampshire by the lovely folk at Hampshire’s Top Attractions. I’ve visited Hampshire quite a few times, but it was a first for Nick and the kids, and I couldn’t wait to show them the New Forest and everything this beautiful county has to offer! Our journey from Yorkshire didn’t actually take as long as I thought it might – and we stopped off at National Trust Charlecote Park (Warwickshire) en route for a sandwich,  ...

Family Fun // A Weekend in Whitby

At the beginning of September, we headed to Whitby with Nick’s parents to stay in their neighbours’ holiday cottage. I’d never visited Whitby before and it’s gorgeous (much better than Scarborough). It has a similar arty vibe to Lewes in Sussex. It’s also steeped in history and with the added benefit of the most amazing beaches! We had such a marvellous weekend away – lots of beach exploration, fish and chips, sandy sandwiches and laughter. It was  ...

Our visit to Wray Castle, Hawkshead

Hurrah! I’ve finally found time to write about our visit to Wray Castle! We visited the beautiful Wray Castle while we were in the Lakes on holiday earlier this month. It’s such a gorgeous National Trust property, with spectacular views. Nick and his Dad had a great time building castles inside, whilst Busby, Nick’s Mum and I explored the bluebells outside. If you love Busby’s pug jumper as much as I do, you can buy it here!  Wray Castle is definitely worth a visit,  ...
