Staying in Britain's Only Authentic Hobbit Hole at West Stow Pods

Staying in Britain’s Only Authentic Hobbit Hole

Before you start reading this post, I’d recommend heading to Spotify or YouTube and putting on ‘Concerning Hobbits’. It’s how I went into Hobbiton earlier this year and also how I first approached West Stow Pods’ hobbit hole. It’s a good mood setter. Done? Okay, cool. Now welcome to Britain’s own piece of Middle-Earth. Nestled in the side of…

Glamping in a Suffolk Woodland at West Stow Pods

From staying in a safari tent on a beach to a wagon in the countryside, I’d say I’ve covered some pretty decent ground when it comes to quirky accommodation. I think my dream is to become a certified glamping extraordinaire (which makes…

A Weekend in Pembrokeshire: Camping on the Coast

If you’ve read my Five Places I’d Love To Return To post or my Adventurous Weekend in North Wales post, you’d know I’ve wanted to spend more and more time in Wales to make the most of being on the doorstep of this beautiful country.

How to Spend Three Days in Auckland

Whilst Auckland was by no means my favourite place in New Zealand, I definitely think a trip to New Zealand is incomplete without a quick stop off here. Even if that’s only to provide contrast and make you appreciate the natural beauty of the South Island even more! From climbing up volcanoes and jumping off towers, to visiting…

Planning a trip to New Zealand in winter, but not sure what you need to pack? I’ve put together this New Zealand Packing List to help you.

Five Places I’d Love To Return To

Amongst the travel blogging community or to be honest anyone who loves travelling in general, there is a lot of country counting. A desire to tick as many countries off your bucket list as possible. But not often do we stop to appreciate the countries we’ve already visited. Oh, and we definitely do not consider returning to them. Been there, posted a photo of me on Instagram there…
