I can't believe summer is almost over! This summer has gone so quickly and with working a lot of weekends, it has felt that I haven't had much of a break so it was so nice to go home over the weekend with my boyfriend and have nothing to worry about. After a long journey and a chippy tea with my family, we headed to Manor House Farm in Rufford, a beautiful bed and breakfast overlooking the marina. We were greeted by the lovely Martin and Jackie who were amazing hosts throughout our stay. The room was simply amazing with luxurious interior, a king sized bed and HD TV. I really want to live in a house like this one day!
After a great night's sleep, we awoke to the smell of bacon...yummy! We'd been so excited for our full English breakfast all week and it did not disappoint, it was delicious! I loved all the little details such as the little pots of jam and local honey as well as the clear jars which the cereal was stored in (I'm going to get some of those for my new house!). The rest of the day was spent with my family and we were treated to some lovely meals out.
Before heading back to Manor House Farm, we went to one of the local pubs for a few drinks with my mum and dad which was lovely. When we got back, we had a couple more drinks and watched the thunder storm from the window...the simple things are the best! Luckily, the sun was shining the next day and after filling ourselves up with another delicious full English breakfast, we went for a nice morning walk along the marina. To end our trip, we enjoyed a barbecue in the garden surrounded by my family with two cute little dogs running around - perfect.
I had such a great weekend and can't wait to go back to Manor House Farm in the near future!
Have you been anywhere nice over summer?
