3 Idyllic Places To Visit In The UK



As a work from home Mummy of two I find myself stretched very thin on a daily basis. Noah is three years old and Ava has just turned five months old and as much of a privilege it is to be able to stay at home and spend every moment with them, it can be difficult at times, especially when it comes to finding the time to do my work. I often find myself staying up till a ridiculous time at night (1:30am last night!) trying to catch up on the things which I need to do and with Ava waking in the night numerous times to feed I'm continuously exhausted. That being said I really wouldn't have it any other way. Being able to stay at home has so many benefits, the main one being that I've not missed any of my their milestones, I've seen every single one of them and it feels amazing to know that. They are only young for such a short amount of time so I'm enjoying every little moment, every tired little moment.


I want to plan a little break away soon, this time just for Nick and I so when I was asked to write about the places I'd like to visit in the UK I was delighted to go ahead, perhaps give myself some inspiration. I can't remember the last time the two of us did something on our own, so I think it's time that we remind ourselves than we aren't just Mummy and Daddy but we are Nick and Jen too. It'll be exciting to take a little break away, just the two of us, to switch off and unwind. Great Little Breaks do wonders for time away and I'm excited to start planning and to hopefully spoil myself a little. Here are the three places that I'd love to visit in the UK.

The Lake District
We've visited the Lakes before as it's not very far from where we live and although we haven't been that many times it still feels like a home away from home. It's the most picturesque place with gorgeous buildings and I can't help but feel utterly relaxed whenever I go. The residents of the Lake District are also really friendly and welcome you to their beautiful district with open arms.

Pembrokeshire 
This is another place that we've visited before but it was a fleeting trip as we weren't able to spend a lot of time there. It was such a shame because it looked so relaxing and just my cup of tea. The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and Tenby are on my to visit list, perhaps we will go to Tenby with the kids though as it seems such a family oriented place.

Devon
I've wanted to visit Devon ever since I was a child as a lot of my friends would frequently take a vacation down there and would show me the photo's they'd taken on their disposable cameras. I love the fact that although it's in the UK you could actually forget and think you're abroad, in the right weather conditions that is! I'd also love to spot a puffin or two, they are my favourite birds!


Do you have any suggestions on places we could visit here in the UK? I'd love to hear them and add them to my list.

  1. I do also like the Lake District. Cornwall and Devon are areas often mentioned positively in regards to short breaks and holidays. Channel Islands can also be lovely, particularly in the Summer. Probably Best to chat with Nick, have a browse of holiday brochures, and surf the Internet. As depends on what is important to the two of you for a short break. Enjoy! Best Wishes.

  7. I hope you both have a nice time on your short break. We have a Day Away this month, fiancé is getting excited as it won't be too long now. We chose somewhere neither of us had been before. So it may be a bit of an exploration. Here's hoping we all enjoy our outings.
