Good morning you wonderful people! Hope you are all OK (fingers crossed 🤞🏽) if your not, I hope you feel better soon. This Sunday just gone, we were supposed to have gone to see my sister but unfortunately, my mum and I were quite poorly 😔 My mum was suffering a lot with her back and could barely move, and I had caught a sickness bug (although I’m not sure whether it was actually caused by the pressure in my ear, apparently it can cause nausea and sickness) we’re slowly on the mend, but as we both have poor immune systems it can take us a little longer to get better.
As Valentine’s Day is nine days away, I thought that if you wanted some ideas for where you could spend it, if you didn’t want to stay at home and wanted a weekend getaway, here are a few ideas that might entice you.
Places to Spend Valentine’s Day
Lake District – Cumbria
If you like nature to set the scene, there are few places more beautifully romantic than North West England’s Lake District. Here you can find easy outdoor walks and more rugged climb up hills and mountains that overlook some of Britain’s comeliest views. Try Augill Castle in Kirkby Stephen for a truly unforgettable weekend.
Cliveden House – Buckinghamshire
This exquisite Victorian mansion in Taplow has been home to dukes, earls and countesses and the author and socialite, Nancy Astor. It’s now home to one of the UK’s most luxurious health spas, set in stunning gardens and a short stroll away from the woodlands of rural Buckinghamshire. Enjoy a soak in the whirlpool followed by a range of relaxing beauty and massage treatments, before retiring to an exquisitely-furnished period bedroom.
Gretna Green – Dumfries and Galloway
Gretna Green is a parish in the southern county of Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, and is situated on the Scottish side of the borders of Scotland and England, defined by the small river Sark, which flows into the estuary of the western contiguous Solway Firth.
St Agnes – Cornwall
The picturesque village of St Agnes sits on the north coast of Cornwall, a short hop down the coast from Newquay. The coastline here is stunning, and you can enjoy it from afar on a hilltop walk, or up close on one of the four pretty beaches in the area. Foodies will enjoy the fresh, local seafood and seasonal specialties served up at Taste on Vicarage Road, a charming place for a romantic supper.
The Isle of Skye – Inner Hebrides
Skye, the largest of the Inner Hebrides, is famed for its breathtaking natural beauty. The island is ringed with miles of basalt cliffs, weathered peninsulas and clear, deep blue waters. The landscape here is more ruggedly sublime than prettily picturesque, but somehow all the more romantic for it. Skye is great for active couples – walking and climbing are popular activities here – and wildlife spotters should definitely bring their binoculars and a camera.
Photography has always been a big passion of mine as well as dance but unfortunately due to having Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS for short) I am no longer able to continue with dancing as I just don't have the energy I once did, but I'm ok with that, instead of wallowing in self pity, I decided to pursue my other dream which brings me to this, I want show other people all the amazing views of the world one day at a time. I hope this blog can be informative and also an escape for whenever your feeling down or to give inspiration or just because...so feel free to browse through my pictures and I hope you enjoy!
