15 Reasons to visit Agios Nikolaos, Crete!

A couple of months ago, my friend Danielle and I were on the search for the perfect girly getaway. We knew we wanted a bit of liveliness but also a touch of luxury. And of course, there had to be plenty of great food available because we both love eating out. So after a bit of researching, we came across the apparent perfect destination – Crete. Greece’s largest island, known for its varied terrain (there’s lots of gorgeous white sandy beaches, but there’s also a lot of rocky cliff-faces, mountains and caves), Crete offers something for everyone in terms of…

Twr Y Felin, Pembrokeshire

After spending our first night in Pembrokeshire in a stunning castle (post here), we figured our trip could only get better from there on in. The reason for our visit to the area was actually to celebrate the launch of the new Twr Y Felin Hotel in St Davids, which has the same ownership as Roch Castle, so from the offset we had very high expectations. We threw all of our belongings into a case and drove along the coast to reach our new home for the night. And what a beautiful home it was.

15 Reasons to visit Sorrento

Italy, in my opinion, is one of the most gorgeous places in the world to visit. The architecture, best admired when getting lost in among winding cobbled streets, is stunning – and of course, the food is incredible. I’m forever pinning my next dream destination and looking up hotels in some of my favourite areas, eager to return for another adventure. You may remember that last summer, I spent a week or so exploring the beautiful Amalfi Coast, with trips to Naples and Sorrento, the latter of which I absolutely adored. Intertwining the adventure of a city break, the roof-top-pool…

Roch Castle, Pembrokeshire

There’s nothing that makes you feel like a princess more than your very own castle. So when the opportunity arose to stay in the luxurious Roch Castle last weekend, I eagerly started digging out my ball gown. Well, ignore the last part. But as you can imagine, I was very excited about it. It’s not every day you get to spend the night in a castle. So we finalised our booking and stocked up on snacks for the long journey that awaited us. Situated in rural Roch (near St Davids, in Pembrokeshire) it was going to take us just over four…

The Swan Hotel & Spa, Lavenham

Many of you who follow me on Twitter will have probably discovered that I am currently writing a (painful) dissertation, as part of my third (and final) year studying Journalism. It’s something that seems to occupy at least 90% of my time and thoughts at the moment, sabotaging any opportunity to chill out or relax. So, when the opportunity arose to escape London and head to Lavenham, in Suffolk, for a long weekend of spa treatments, incredible food and swanning about in robes, I’m sure you can imagine what my answer was. Located just under two hours away, we packed up…
