3 reasons to include a wine tour as part of your holiday in France
Created: 17/06/2019
Imagine the scene…you’re on holiday in rural France, it’s early evening, you’re sitting under the shade of a sun-baked parasol, cool glass of wine in hand, nothing to interrupt your thoughts but the gentle hum of the crickets and the occasional flurry of birdsong. You take a sip of the fresh, crisp rosé which you discovered during your tour of the local vineyards, only a short drive from ..
All Hail The Peak District - A Weekend at Jack`s Cottage by Fliss Hoad
Created: 03/04/2019
It wasn’t long after turning off the M6 that familiar cityscapes turned to patchwork-quilt fields, wide valley floors, quaint villages with thriving pubs and fields of bleating lambs.  Criss-crossing from the Staffordshire Moors into the Derbyshire Dales looked literally taken from a film set:  it’s no wonder the landscape was chosen as the filming location for Peak Practice, a popular, nine..

Chic rural hideaway in a converted 17th century blacksmith's forge in Herefordshire
Created: 10/05/2018
There is so much going on in Herefordshire that we haven’t had a chance to do much more than scratch the surface. We moved into this seventeenth-century Blacksmiths house with an adjoining Forge from Sussex in 2015. We were charmed and fascinated by the buildings and set about unearthing their history. The Forge, located on Turnpike Road (though no-one calls it that anymore), was on a drovers’..

Created: 02/03/2018
There are so many reasons why France is the ultimate holiday destination that it’s hard to know where to start. Its proximity to and easy access from the UK is certainly a plus, especially if you’re travelling with a large family in tow or if you don’t have a lot of time to spare. And there’s no question that the countryside is picture-postcard stunning - think vibrant sunflower fields and..

How to find a Chateau in France
Created: 07/11/2017
Lee and I have owned a holiday cottage in Lower Normandy for 10 years now, so we are quite familiar with all things “French”, including the stunning architecture.  One thing newcomers to France may notice is a proliferation of Chateaux.  Castles in the UK are few and far between and most are tourist destinations; many are looked after by The National Trust and other similar organisations.  ..
Life on Mallorca - from Scotland to our Rural Mountain Retreat
Created: 28/09/2017
I’ve lived on the island of Mallorca for over seventeen years, arriving from Scotland after falling in love with a Mallorcan. We lived in a rural area known as Es Pla – the fertile plain at the centre of the island - and during my first few years there I learnt the language by immersion, gave birth to three boys and had a crash course in Mallorcan culture including wine making, becoming famili..
