  • Day Trip to Lingholm Estate

    Last year (I think it was) we went glamping to Silverdale and stayed in a lovely little camping pod at Holgates there. On our way home from the trip we decided to have a little detour to the Lakes and ended up driving to Keswick for the day. We had a lovely lunch and wander around The Lingholm Estate and a walk down to Derwentwater, which is a beautiful lake…

  • Glamping in Northumberland at Dark Sky Glamping

    Ever book a trip away on a whim? I love booking unplanned trips when I have a spare weekend! It doesn’t happen very often (thanks, weddings!) but when it does I like to make the most of my free time. I happened to have a free weekend in May so searched for a glamping trip in Northumberland. I bloody love Northumberland, and would go there every weekend if I could.…

  • Weekend Wander to Digley, Holmfirth

    It’s been a while since I did a blog post about our Weekend Wanders. In truth, we haven’t been wandering anywhere that exciting recently! West Yorkshire has been in some form of Covid-19 restrictions since March and the levels keep changing. We’re now in a Lockdown 2.0, meaning we can’t meet friends (unless it’s one person from each household). Schools are still open though so at least Hols gets to…

After the seeming endlessness of lockdown, we needed a change of scenery so we booked a short break to Silverdale. Our usual place to stay is Holgates camp site…

  • Day Trip to Spurn Point Lighthouse

    It was Mr R’s birthday a few weekends ago and we decided to have a mini break to the East Coast. We booked a cottage near Hornsea and Mappleton (I wouldn’t recommend this particular cottage) and used it as a base to explore the local area. We decided to explore the coast and had a day trip to Spurn Point Lighthouse!

  • Day Trip to Filey and Hunmanby

    Last week we decided on a whim to have day trip to the coast. During the Covid-19 lockdown we have barely been out of the house. In fact, I didn’t leave the house and garden for over a month at one point! I was missing the smell of the sea and our day trips so I suggested we have a day trip to Filey. As social distancing is still essential…
