] Homemade Cakes and Chilled Prosecco - who says romance is dead? 🥂🌹 Sharing our romantic staycation in Hedgehope Hut with @hutsinthehillsnorthumberland
on the blog today (link in bio ⬆️) Anyone who watches my stories will be chuckling at this photo because the reality is I put this together while my husband sat in the car on his own eating a cheese sandwich 😂😂
] A luxurious soak in the beautiful outdoor antique French cast iron bath at @hutsinthehillsnorthumberland
- Ooh la la! Living the dream and scaring the farm animals ❤️🥂🐮
] When MTV asked me to share my crib I just couldn’t resist? 🏠 Fancy a look inside my luxury pad? It’s a cosy hut for two in the Northumberland Hills with an outdoor antique bath tub, wood burner and the cosiest bed 🛁🔥 Ha!! Imagine if Simon actually let me live in a hut? 😂 Sharing our beautiful staycation with @hutsinthehillsnorthumberland

❤️ Sharing our luxury glamping trip to the Cheviots on the blog today (link in bio ⬆️) I honestly can’t believe how beautiful Hedgehope Hut was, she made me want to quit this normal life and run to the Northumberland Hills 🏃🏼♀️! Who wants to join me?
Adventures in the Northumberland Hills - sharing our walk at Simonside on the blog today (link in bio ⬆️) It wasn’t our most successful walk. We’re not too great at self guided walks - they lead to arguments over maps and walking miles in the wrong direction 😂 We got lost! 🙈 But if getting lost leads to views like this it isn’t all bad! ❤️
] Glamping adventures at the beautiful @hesleysidehuts
- with the Autumn approaching I have such itchy feet to plan another glamping adventure in Northumberland ❤️ Love the idea of camp fires, crunchy leaves and roasting marshmallows in the beautiful Autumn evenings 🔥🍂 How do I convince my hubby this needs to happen? 🤔
I can’t believe it’s the last day of August? How did that happen? 🤷🏼♀️ Saying goodbye to the long hot sunny days, cruising the Northumberland coast and exposing my milk bottle legs to the world ☀️ Let the epic hunt for Winter boots begin (warning for those that are new around here: I will go crazy trying to find a pair that I like - it happens every year!) 👢Go on then - let’s embrace it .. who’s looking forward to Autumn? 🍂
] Just casually driving my tractor, as you do! 🚜 Sharing our first ever visit to @whitehousefarmcentre
on the blog today (link in bio ⬆️) - I dressed like a farmer (for some reason this gingham skirt just makes me think farm 🤷🏼♀️), met some teeny piglets and challenged the family to a go karting race🚦
Why do Bank Holiday weekends go faster than normal weekends. I’m sure it’s not been 3 days already? 🤔 We have had such a wonderful break and made some lovely memories - to finish it off by finally experiencing a stroll in the Northumberland Hills was the icing on top of the cake! 🍰 That’s all now folks, can you believe there’s no more Bank Holidays until Santa comes?!
] That’s it! I’ve decided I’m moving my bath tub out into the garden when I get home ... not sure that gazing at my neighbour’s fence will be quite the same as this view of the Cheviots but it’s worth a try! 😂
Bath time at @hutsinthehillsnorthumberland
and I think I’ll be sitting in here until I turn into a prune - how beautiful is this view? 🛁
] Our home for the night ❤️ This is Hedgehope, a luxury cabin for 2 at @hutsinthehillsnorthumberland
and isn’t she a beauty? She’s the Mary Poppins bag of Shepherd’s Huts - you wouldn’t believe how much is packed inside this cosy hut for two! Can’t wait to snuggle down for the night 🛌
There’s something about hiking to a waterfall that turns a walk into a real adventure! 🕵🏼♀️ During our stay at @hesleysidehuts
we explored the beautiful ancient woodlands of Hareshaw Linn in the Northumberland National Park. We staggered up hills, climbed endless steps and battled the blazing sun to be rewarded with this beautiful view - definitely worth it ❤️ Sharing all the walk details on the blog today (link in bio ⬆️)
] Welcome to my crib 😎 ... you’re welcome to come in for a soak in my copper bath tub but please do take your shoes off at the door 👞 Ha!!! Who am I kidding, I can only dream that Holly Hut is my home! 🏠 If you fancy pretending you own a beautiful hut for two in the Northumberland countryside then I’m sharing all the details of our break at @hesleysidehuts
on the blog today (link in bio ⬆️)
] It’s finally time to open the doors of Holly Hut and take a look inside 🛁❤️Yes that is a copper bath tub you spot in the doorway and yep it’s probably a good plan to start hinting to your other half that you’d quite like a romantic break here 😉Sharing my review of @hesleysidehuts
on the blog today (link in bio ⬆️) - let me know the most romantic break you’ve ever been on, I’m after some wedding anniversary inspiration!

] Just finished writing up our visit to @hesleysidehuts
for the blog and I can’t wait to share it with you all next week ❤️ I still feel very sad we had to leave so I’m now distracting myself by planning our wedding anniversary next month, we have two days off work and I want to book somewhere fancy! 🥂Any recommendations?
Our new favourite beach. Such stunning coastlines in Northumberland
- just one of three castles featured in my Northumberland Coastal Road Trip Guide (link in bio ⬆️) 🏰 Bamburgh is always the point of our Northumberland adventures where we turn round to return home to Newcastle which makes me wonder what we’re missing out on further up the coast? 🤔 Let me know your favourite spots in north north Northumberland and we’ll try and venture further next time! 🦀🌊
You hear about people taking road trips across America but have you ever considered planning a road trip of the Northumberland Coastal Route? 🚗 We’ve been exploring the most beautiful villages, enjoying stunning views and eating some of the best food to put together a definitive guide to road tripping the Northumberland coast (link in bio ⬆️) @northumberlandcoastaonb
] We’re ready for a fun adventure at @whitehousefarmcentre
today 🐹🐰🐭 Our niece and nephew are visiting and we’re determined to get the award for the most fun Aunt and Uncle 👬 Today is all about adventure playgrounds, tractor rides, new born piglets and a visit from Santa! (who knew that Santa spends his Summer holiday in Northumberland?!) 🚜
With my Saturday being spent at work I can only dream of sitting in The Harvest @ouseburncoffee
sipping piccolos and reading glossy magazines. Hope everyone has great weekend plans comment what you’re doing
] The view from our bed this morning ❤️ We spent the night in Holly Hut at @hesleysidehuts
and the fact I’ve only just woken up shows how cosy and comfy she is 🛌 I’m usually wake up at 5.30 am! Currently lying in bed listening to the rain hitting the hut roof and it is absolutely beautiful ☔️
] Our home for the night ❤️ This is Holly Hut at @hesleysidehuts
- isn’t she a beauty? We’re having a romantic staycation for two surrounded by pine trees and red squirrels and it’s very much our happy place 🐿 Currently sitting by the fire discussing life plans and arguing about when to start roasting the marshmallows 🔥
Rewarding yourself after a walk with a Cream Tea that’s how it works doesn’t it? 🍰☕️ We’re enjoying our refreshments in Carriages Tea Room - an old train carriage in Bellingham that serves up homemade goodies to hungry hikers 🚂 I LOVE anything quirky like this but very happy to report that the food was actually pretty damn good and (embarrassing confession alert) I had so much cream left in my pot I ate the rest with a spoon 😳 I have no shame do I?!
