Candyland Studios | A Woodland Retreat

I get a real buzz about staying somewhere special. Fancy Hotels might offer luxury that the majority of us aren’t used too, but what I really love is something unique and different. That’s what makes a stay special to me. Let me set the scene. Deep in heart of Devon, near enough to civilisation but far enough away to feel isolated with no preying eyes. A unique cabin made from local natural resources, designed by two creative individuals who definitely left their stamp on the cabin. This my friends, is Candyland Studios. To celebrate a good friend’s birthday (shout out […]

Off-Road Driving With Kankku!

With a slogan of ‘Drive. Discover. Adventure’, I was signed up to Kankku’s 4×4 off-road driving experience immediately! Based in Windermere, in the Lake District, this is an awesome activity to get involved with. During a weekend away with some of my girlfriends, one of the girls had heard of the company before, so suggested we sign ourselves up. The five of us were all over this like someone had announced that Ryan Gosling had entered the room – and we couldn’t wait! Experiences And Costs There are two types of driving experiences available to book, either a Safari drive […]

Paradise Wildlife Park

Paradise Wildlife Park 

My close friends will already know how much I love animals (mainly the furry ones, not the reptiles so much), so this weekend Adam and I visited the Paradise Wildlife Park in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire. I stumbled across the park a few months ago, and have wanted to visit ever since. So off we went! Tickets cost £15.95 per adult / £14.30 per child, but you can save 10% by booking online in advance. Make sure you tick the gift aid box too to ensure the park can reclaim 25p tax for every £1 spent! Once through the Welcome Centre, you’ll […]

2017, Another Great Year Of Travel

With Christmas been and gone, and 2017 all wrapped up – this means one thing for me. It’s time to reinstate my favourite New Year’s resolution. Once stolen from a friend, this New Year’s resolution is to try and visit at least three new countries per year.  And in 2017 I’ve done exactly that by visiting Vietnam, Wales, and Budapest. Hurrah. A full three out of three achieved for 2017! I think this is a great New Year’s resolution for anyone, and more people should take it up. Time and money are probably no doubt the biggest factors that hold […]

Go Banana’s At Trentham Monkey Forest

Most of you already know how much I love animals – big, small, furry – so it should come as no surprise that we made a slight detour on our way back from Wales, to visit to the Monkey Forest! It was only a slight detour, and would break up our long drive back to London, so off we went! Tickets cost us £8.50 per adult (£6.50 per child), and if you are driving, then you’ll be able to park in the large on site car park. Click here for more info on Trentham Monkey Forest. Monkey Time Located in Staffordshire, […]

Feast On The Farm

The Chiltern Hills, often referred to as just ‘The Chilterns’, is a countryside area just outside of London that cover 324 square miles of beautiful scenery, quaint markets towns and picturesque English villages. Having just moved out of London a few months ago, I’m loving that we have so much on our doorstep. This weekend Laura and Michelle were visiting, so we headed out to The Chilterns to visit The Feast On The Farm, a local food and drink festival at Peterley Manor Farm. Offering a number of food stands, local produce for purchase, workshops, and stage presentations, the festival […]

Road Trip To Norfolk

I have many friends who are from Norfolk, grew up in Norfolk, or still have family in Norfolk, and it’s become one of those places I’ve wanted to visit for a long time. With over 90 miles of coastline including unspoilt beaches, countryside, national parks, and several quaint villages in between, it’s a wonder I’ve not been before. What To Do I don’t know where to start, but to truly enjoy Norfolk you must be a fan of the great outdoors! You’ll be spoilt for choice, from where to walk the dog, which bike trails to follow, which hiking paths […]

A Little Piece Of Devon

As someone who travels often, I rarely choose a UK based get-away and I’ll be the first to admit that I am guilty of not knowing my own country half as well as I should! Sure I’ve visited most of the big cities (Manchester, Edinburgh, Liverpool), and several smaller towns (Bath, Brighton, Cambridge), but it’s the traditional English villages that I really haven’t learnt to appreciate just yet. With plenty of coastal and inland towns such as York, Oxford or Norwich – all of which are within a 2-hour commute from London by train – why are we not making […]

My Instagram 7 Day Beach Photo Challenge

In case anyone isn’t on Instagram (how is that possible?), or doesn’t follow my Instagram account yet (please add me – I need to get my followers up!), I wanted to share a challenge I set myself last week. For a little bit of fun, I thought I’d set myself a week long challenge on Instagram with only one rule – each day I was to upload a photo of a different beach I had visited. My aim was to collate a short collection of snaps to share some of my favourite memories with you. All photos are my own images and […]
