England: A Divine Stay At The Devonshire Arms Hotel & Spa, Yorkshire

Not all travel has to involve strapping on your hiking boots and hitting the streets, mountains or trails and as frequent travellers, we often have to remind ourselves of that. Our natural instinct is to explore for hours on end to combat the fear of missing out. So when the opportunity to relax comes along, we have to remind ourselves to grasp it and embrace it. Therefore, when we were…

England: Review of The Artists’ Corner, Harrogate

Being from a fabulous Yorkshire Town, I have an affinity for them. Therefore, when we were invited to stay at the Artists’ Corner, one of the properties that make up the Artists’ Cottages portfolio of holiday lets in Harrogate we were very excited. We have visited Harrogate a number of times, it is beautiful and often listest as one of the best places to live in England and I can completely…

England: Hiding Out at The HIDEOUT Hotel, Hull

Hailing from Hull, East Yorkshire in the North East of England we are both familiar with the city – the top attractions to see, the places to grab the best bites and the bars that serve killer cocktails. One thing, it appears we were not up on were the places to stay! Hull has a number of big, faceless, chain hotels, which of course serve their purpose but do not…

England: Having Our Tastebuds Tantalised at Tapasya, Hull

If you are anything like us, when you see a new restaurant pop up in your local village, town or city, you say to yourself or each other ‘oh we really must try that new place’. Right? Mr ESLT and I definitely said that to each other when the new Indian restaurant Tapasya opened up on Beverley High Road in our home city of Hull. Well, that was 5 years…

England: Hearty Meal at The Hart’s Head Hotel, Giggleswick, Yorkshire Dales

The Yorkshire Dales is a beautiful part of England to explore, there is so much to see and do for all of the family. Living in East Yorkshire, the Dales is almost on our doorstep and we love nothing more than packing the car up and heading out into the beautiful countryside and that’s exactly what we did last weekend. We enjoyed a morning getting back to nature and wandering…

England: The Grainary, Scarborough, Yorkshire

I’m a city girl. Born and bred in Hull – the 4th largest city in Yorkshire, England. I’m used to 24(ish) hour living and having everything on my door step. Sometimes I forget that Yorkshire is a diverse county. Not only does it have large cosmopolitan cities, market towns, gorgeous coastline but also rolling fields and beautiful scenery. And it was the latter that we had the pleasure of experiencing…

England: A Romantic Stay for Two at Ox Pasture Hall, Scarborough, Yorkshire

The Hotel Mr ESLT and I had the pleasure of staying at Ox Pasture Hall last weekend. It is a luxury country hotel located just 2 miles from the seaside town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire. Even though we were only 5 minutes away from the busy town which attracts tourists all year around, we felt like we were miles away from civilisation (in a good way!). Nestled in a…

England: Where The Heck Is Hull, Yorkshire and What Has It Got To Offer?

Mr ESLT: Guess what? Me: What? Mr ESLT: Rough Guides have listed Hull as number 8 on their Top 10 Cities: The Best Places to Visit in 2016 list. Me: SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! (*or words to that effect*). After grabbing my iPhone and checking out what I thought was a preposterous lie for myself it turned out to be in fact – FACT. The city I was born in…
