How We Choose A Dog Friendly Stay

I am starting to strongly believe that there are millions of hotels, b&b’s, youth hostels and airbnb’s in the UK alone, no, billions even. So how do you pick where to stay? What to see? Add on to that taking a dog and well it’s another ball game altogether. That is why I decided toContinue reading “How We Choose A Dog Friendly Stay”

Italian Travel Diaries – Montalcino

On our last holiday to Italy we visited the Tuscan town of Montalcino. Having never been before we didn’t know what to expect but were definitely pleased and went back a few times during our stay. We saw a different view of Montalcino on each visit and the town was bigger than we originally thought.Continue reading “Italian Travel Diaries – Montalcino”

A Tuscan Honeymoon

It feels like such a long time ago we were relaxing on the sunny hills of Tuscany but it was only a few months ago. Thinking about it reminds me of our second visit to Italy which was our honeymoon. It took us so long to decide where we wanted to go but we finallyContinue reading “A Tuscan Honeymoon”

Dog Holidays – Accommodation

We have had our chocolate Labrador Mia for nearly 5 years, she’ll turn 5 years old in July and we were able to bring her home in September, coincidentally on my birthday. Side note: I picked up a new car the year after so Mr LB had a lot to live up to after that!Continue reading “Dog Holidays – Accommodation”

My 2020 Travel Plans

I wanted to travel and took a couple of flights on my own when I was younger. There was no fear andContinue reading “Why I’m travelling more this year”

A Stay in Venice

That’s right, we love Italy. After visiting a few times we would still go back probably yearly to see different cities. We had heard mixed reviews about Venice with some people saying it had a whiff from the canals and some reporting how busy and expensive it was. We of course needed to find outContinue reading “A Stay in Venice”

A Dog Friendly Weekend in the Cotswolds

For the last two years we’ve been able to go away with friends and their cockapoo pooch. Last year we stayed in the Lake District in a yurt and this year we decided to treat ourselves a little more and go with a hotel. I was set on the destination of the Cotswolds as itContinue reading “A Dog Friendly Weekend in the Cotswolds”

Where to? Clumber Park

We have visited Clumber Park many times over the years whether on our own, with family or taking the dog a walk. We have hired bikes and taken a ride through the woods before and strolled around the lake with friends after a bacon cob at the cafe. Mr LB has also even taken partContinue reading “Where to? Clumber Park”

Why I love my National Trust Membership

Both myself and my husband have been National Trust members for about 5 years now and as the saying goes, “I havent been everywhere but it’s on my list”. National Trust membership to us is no different than that, we would love to visit every destination and will hopefully get the opportunity. One thing aboutContinue reading “Why I love my National Trust Membership”
