When you get invited to stay in a luxurious cosy wooden cabin in the middle of some glorious Yorkshire woodland, you can hardly say no right? Well, last weekend, my sister and I drove the 50 minutes from Leeds city centre, along the M62 towards North Cave and rocked up at North Star Club. This luxury woodland retreat was just… View Post

A villa holiday? What’s that all about then? Well, I’ll tell you. Just imagine having your own home away from home for a week or two, a pool surrounded by sunbeds that you don’t have to fight for and a space large enough that you can really spread out and relax. The last time I stayed in a villa was… View Post

If you’ve read my first post on The Pavilions, you’ll be able to see how much I loved the accommodation. It. Was. Stunning. The villa was the perfect place to relax and chill out but that wasn’t where I spent most of my time. I spent most of my time around the resort and exploring the surrounding area. And relaxing,… View Post

I’m the first to admit that when I travel, accommodation isn’t usually something I make a priority. Generally, I’m happy when I’ve got a bed to rest on and a clean bathroom to, well, get clean in. I do like somewhere convenient though, that’s usually my main criteria when looking up where to stay. I like to be in it… View Post

If there’s one thing I love about accommodation, it’s when it’s got a little bit of personality. A little bit of, something, that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Over the last couple of weeks though, thanks to a couple of events at work, I’ve been lucky enough to stay in two… View Post

“I need help! I need to use your phone to call Germany!  He just took my card!!” “I’m sorry Sir, who took your card?” “The guy outside!  The guy with the gun!” After a long journey which started at 5am in London, I had finally made it to New York City and found my way to the hostel from a… View Post

When I’m travelling, I love finding a good hostel.  You know, somewhere that’s centrally located, clean and tidy, has a good atmosphere and most importantly, is easy on the spending money!  After staying in Doolin, Ireland for a couple of days, my step sister Francesca and I had already stayed in a nice hostel which naturally got us wondering about… View Post

Earlier last week, I booked an impulsive trip to The Lake District for my boyfriend and I so that we could have a break away.  A break so that we could both have a change of scenery and so that we could also do something different other than chilling out/going to the cinema/building Lego.  Not that there’s anything wrong with that,… View Post
