Make mine a cod and chips please!
Across North Cornwall converted bright blue container cafes are popping up keeping beach goers fed and watered to make the most of their days out.
Beach Box Cafe is a local independent providing great coffee, smoothies, snacks and a whole lot of healthy stuff. The closest one to where we were staying was on the beach in Polzeath.
If you’re out and about and need a snack or a drink, Beach Box is the place to head to keep the wolf from the door.
ᵃᵈ* How often do you get a whole day to yourself, responsibility free, and getting pampered?
No, I know, not that often, so when they come around you’ve got to make the most of them!
Recently the team at Southampton Harbour Hotel were unbelievably kind and invited me to try out HarSPA, a beautiful zen zone packed full of tranquil treats.
This spa in central Southampton is a real hidden gem in the city. Take a look because everyone needs a little luxe in their life now and then and this might be just the right escape for you, it certainly was for me!
Need a good independent coffee shop in Bristol?
📌 Pin this one for later.
Society Cafe, this is an absolutely cracking independent cafe right in the heart of the city. It’s right on the corner of Farrs Lane, opposite the canal where you walk on real cobble streets – it is beautiful, the food is great, and I just totally love it.
There’s nothing like having dinner watching a storm from the inside of a cosy beach side restaurant.
When we said we’re going to Jersey, everyone who had been said to head up Five Mile Road towards St. Ouen’s Bay to visit El Tico.
It’s right on the beach and the restaurant is a great all rounder and popular choice with locals and tourists.
Jersey’s restaurant scene is thriving and a heavy weight punching well above its size is Locke’s Coffee and Grub.
This glass fronted ex-record shop is now an awesome restaurant with a friendly team, incredible coffee and awesome food.
A trip to Jersey isn’t complete if you’ve not visited, and it easily shot to the top of my favourite restaurants on the island.
Jersey is blessed to have a thriving foodie scene and Nude Food stands out as the top healthy, clean eating choice on the island.
I totally fell in love with the healthy food, the gorgeous cafes and seriously good coffee, it quickly became my go to place throughout the whole of the trip.
There’s branches called Nude Town in St. Helier and Nude Beach in St Aubin (I know, I giggled too, good to know someone has a sense of humour!).
If you’re in Jersey this is a great cafe that needs to be on your radar.
If you want seafood straight from the sea or vegetables straight from the field to your plate, then you need to head to Faulkner Fisheries in Jersey.
The Great Hall in Winchester is home to one of the greatest symbols of medieval mythology…King Arthur’s Round Table!
Surrounded by the remains of Winchester Castle, built by William the Conquerer no less, it is an iconic piece of the city that’s tucked away at the top of the high street.
It’s definitely another tick off the bucket list for me and I am so glad I found it, I’m not a big history buff but, King Arthur’s table is seriously impressive!
Travel, exploring and discovering something completely new comes in so many different forms. You don’t have to go far to find a little bit of everyday magic.
A garden that comes to life in the depths of winter is something really special. The winter garden at Mottisfont in Romsey was full of bright, colourful plants that could brighten up even the dullest day!
Getting some fresh air, stretching my legs and admiring the beautiful plants in bloom was a great way to brighten up January.
Take a look…
