Summer Holiday Snippets

I'm just back from my summer holidays which were amazing! I'll be doing fuller posts but this is a little snippet. Back to work tomorrow..and reality!

We started off in Harrogate staying at Ascot House Hotel which was a short stroll to the centre of town.

Setting off the next day we headed to Bray where we were dining at The Fat Duck which was a once in a lifetime (amazing) experience. We stayed at the very exquisite and gorgeous Clematis Cottage which was right on the River Thames (and fed the ducks and swans!)

Next day we headed to The Pig Hotel at Brockenhurst in the New Forest. This was one of my favourite stops. The Kitchen Garden is simply amazing and I enjoyed walking around it. The bedroom and bathroom (Tamworth) were gorgeous as was the food! 

Next stop was with my Aunt Mary in Par, near St Austell. We ate at Sam's on the Beach at Polkerris and had a very sunny afternoon in Fowey.

We then had five nights in Port Isaac, a lovely little village and home to Nathan Outlaw's Restaurant and Fish Kitchen.  We stayed at The Bay Hotel, a local B&B.

Our final night was in Birmingham where we had the real pleasure of meeting Elijah Choo and Andy Millward and we dined at Purnell's.  It was one of our holiday highlights!

Hope you've all been having a great summer!
