Barnham Broom Hotel – A Little Luxury Retreat

Barnham Broom, Norfolk

Last week we spent a short break in North Norfolk discovering new places, enjoying wonderful food and exploring the culture that this part of the UK has to offer.  I’m not a stranger to North Norfolk as I have been visiting for over 20 years.  One of my oldest friends lives in this part of […]

My Weekly Finds No.10

Moddershall Oaks

I can’t quite believe that we are actually having a proper summer this year (although I hope I haven’t spoken too soon!).  We’ve just come back from a lovely week spent in North Norfolk and we found some wonderful places to visit, things to do and of course lots of lovely food finds.  I’ll be […]

Creating My Bucket List

Packwood House, Warwickshire

Precious Moments

Packwood House, Warwickshire (7)

Upton House and Gardens, A Birds Eye View

Upton House and Gardens, Warwickshire
