It’s always lovely to get away for a few days just to chill out and recharge from the stresses of everyday life.
Last week me and my Mam drove down in her car to stay in a realy cute barn near Penrith in Cumbria. And I’ll be honest, the drive down was pretty crap with the weather. You’ve got to love our English weather sometimes! Eventually both my sister and Dad joined us. It’s a good job that the barn was big enough for four!
The barn itself was beautiful. The bedrooms and bathroom were downstairs and upstairs has a really sweet open plan kitchen and living area. The owner had left us some fresh eggs , bread and milk, which was a nice touch. I was really impressed with his egg house! I’m easily pleased; let’s just agree on that!
One of the main reasons we chose this house was to be close to Centre Parcs, which we spent a whole day getting pampered in the many steam rooms and treatments. I always feel so relaxed when I go here. It was just such an amazing day. Of course we went to the pub in the village later that night. You can’t beat proper Steak and Kidney pie pub grub.
The final day, we actually spent time in Penrith itself, which wasn’t that well planned; most shops were shut. So being the naughty ladies that we are, we had some cheeky gin cocktails in a place called The Lounge. The food was amazing, as were our cocktails.
Overall, we had an amazing time. It was just nice to spend time as a family, and spend some time away from technology and life.
Where was your last holiday?
Have a lovely day guys!
