Planning our next great British adventure…

life as our little family

I don’t know about you but one of the things Mr H and I love to do when autumn arrives is to plan a little break, a weekend away or even a holiday for half-term. This year we took our first holiday outside of the UK since Lil G arrived, as much as it was heavenly to have guaranteed sunshine and beach days there is something so cosy and welcoming about a Classic British Hotels break in the winter. I am dreaming of open log fires in the beautiful English countryside, stunning views and long walks through beautiful garden landscapes all wrapped up with a hot chocolate in one hand and my boys hand in the other.

We regularly go out for long countryside walks, I am always amazed by how pretty the UK is and by how much of it we just don’t see. We’ve ventured to Wales and the Peak District a few times as a family, but this time I think we need to explore a different part of our gorgeous country. I’m thinking of the Lake District, I’ve visited a couple of times when I was growing up but never with our little family and I think it’s time we corrected that. We have been looking at Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel – I love its history and the fact that it is set in the Lake District National Park. Lil G is excited by the fact that’s its previous owner was children’s author Beatrix Potter and is already planning a little rabbit hunt.

I love this quote I stumbled upon on the Classic British Hotels website whilst researching a little break. It’s a quote about the English Countryside and Capability Brown…
I love the idea of exploring more of England with our gorgeous boy. As much as I hope for him to travel and explore the world with us, I also want him to love the country in which we live. The is so much to explore. We love to get outdoors as a family and what better way to enjoy the countryside than when it’s built in to a little weekend away. I’ve heard the afternoon tea is a must at Lindeth! And so my research has left me dreaming of a weekend break filled with lots of love, laughter, tea, cake and winter walks to blow away the cobwebs.
