What I’ve Learnt From Walking Holidays

Pack that backpack. Humans and dogs alike need supplies over the course of the day, especially on walking holidays. If it is warm or a cool day we end up carrying drinks such as a flask of tea, a cold drink and water for Mia. This can get very heavy so I tend to carryContinue reading “What I’ve Learnt From Walking Holidays”

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”

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

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.

I was set on the destination of the Cotswolds as itContinue reading “A Dog Friendly Weekend in the Cotswolds”

How We Make Days Out Cheaper

As a couple we love exploring. Seeing a new place or trying a new activity and it’s one of the ways we like to spend our days off together. The trouble with exploring is we don’t have an unlimited budget and although you can have an adventure just by leaving your front door sometimes weContinue reading “How We Make Days Out Cheaper”

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”

Lane Head Farm

Our 2 night stay on this trip was gifted but all opinions are my own. The sun is shining and it’s making me want to plan another adventure up in the Lake District. If you haven’t already make sure to read my previous post on day 1 in Troutbeck and catch up on our visitContinue reading “Lane Head Farm”

Winter in Windermere

In April 2016 we planned a trip to Windermere over Easter. My partner proposed to me on this break so it became a place that meant something to both of us. As a surprise Christmas getaway my now fiancé booked us into the Lyth Valley Country Inn for a relaxed weekend away. On arrival toContinue reading “Winter in Windermere”
