    A One Night Blogger Stay At Clayton Hotel – Birmingham

    If you know me or my blog at all, you’ll know I’m partial to a hotel review or two (I have a whole hotel category in case you’re interested.) Recently, I was invited for a one night complimentary stay at Clayton Hotel, Birmingham which has recently taken over from the previous residence of Hotel La Tour on Albert Street, outside of the City Centre. I visited the hotel restaurant back in September 2017 for a meal when it was still a Marco Pierre White establishment, but wasn’t entirely satisfied with the food. You can also check my review out here. I was intrigued to go back and see what the new…

    One Night Stay At Woodward Lakes And Lodges, Doncaster

    Every once in a while, a person needs to escape their daily routine. For me, this usually means hiding away for the night. This is exactly what I did when being invited for a one night stay at Woodward Lakes and Lodges site in Doncaster. Let me start off by saying that if you’ve come here thinking you can randomly rent out a lodge for a weekend with pals, then you might be disappointed. You can do this here, but the aim of the park is to showcase luxury lodges that could become your future home. Let me explain a bit more. The onsite lodges and log cabins are built…

    Ashwell Barn – Heart of the Cotswolds

    It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a lifestyle blog. It feels like a lifetime, but I wanted to share this one with you. One of my best friend’s has recently jetted off to go travelling around Asia for a few months. So to say farewell, me and my three other besties surprised her with a luxury Airbnb stay in the Cotswolds recently. The place we stayed is a converted barn –  Ashwell Barn, Chedworth. We did nothing but eat good food, drink good drink, play games and sleep. It really was complete and utter bliss if you ask me. The barn is open plan, and sleeps up to…

    Beech Hill Hotel & Spa Review – Windermere

    My recent blogger trip was located in the lovely land of the Lake District. I’ve only ever driven through Windermere once before, so when I landed an opportunity to review the Beech Hill Hotel & Spa, I couldn’t wait to get there. The first thing Josh and I did on arrival was change into our swimming costumes and jump into the outdoor hot tub that I’ve been stalking on their website ever since I found out about the hotel. It really is the place to come to clear your head and since I had been poorly a few days prior, this was just what I needed to relax. Look how…

    Bank House Hotel & Spa Review – Worcester

    Being a hotel blogger definitely has its perks. Even if I don’t get invited to stay over, it usually means I’m encouraged to try out the spa area for the day to relax and pamper myself. I’ve been lucky enough to review a whole range of UK spas on my blog, from Fishmore Hall in Ludlow to Champneys Springs Spa, and I’ve been lucky to work with some pretty amazing places over the past couple of years. I honestly think having a spa day is one of the best ways to treat yourself, so each time I get invited, there’s always something to look forward to. With Bank House Hotel Spa that…
