Getting Away | Port Solent Spa Hotel

IMG_9577

We can get so involved with living that we actually forget to live! We live for the latest instagram post, the next seasonal pumpkin spiced latte and pleasing everyone in our lives but what about us?

What about living our lives for us? Living our life how we want too and not how society¬† wants us too. I will hold my hands up and say ‘this is me’ I can get so caught up in the world and just doing my everyday routine.

Over the last few weeks all this has just got a little too much, and i needed out. I needed to be away from the ‘perfect’ I needed time to enjoy the moment and actually live!

With this in mind Mr and I made a very spontaneous trip to Port Solent, for a spa weekend. This was actually what I need and i think what Mr needed as well. We found a great deal at the most gorgeous spa hotel that was stunning from the moment we arrived. The hotel was called Solent Hotel and Spa.

We spend the weekend eating, drinking, relaxing and spending quality time with each other. I even manged to persaude Mr to have treatment in the spa. It was so nice to just enjoy life and live life, rather than worrying about everything and anything.

The life we live in can be so manic and stressful, I think I will be taking a few more ‘me’ days or even weekends in the months to come. It was honestly so refreshing stripping everything back, getting away from day-to-day life and social life.

Penshurst Place & Gardens

Anyone that know me, knows how much enjoyment and happiness I get from spending the day wandering around Palaces and Manor Houses. I think I get the satisfaction from being a young girl and believing in fairy tales and the big castles and just letting your imagination run wide with you. This is something that has never left me.

Luckily for me I found a man who will spend his afternoon wandering around the most gorgeous country manor houses.  While he was working away last week he decided that on the Friday I should join him and we can have a little visit to Penshurst Place and Gardens, he found this little gem on his way back and forth to work.

Friday came around and off we went to this little gem, I didn’t know anything about this place as we drove through some gorgeous little villages, enjoying every single moment.

We had a lovely afternoon, the house has connection to Ann Boyle and was used for a lot of filming. The gardens were even more gorgeous, stand alone gorgeous, every way you looked there was something new, every turn around the corner there was another secret garden. The photos do not do it justest but below I have shared my favourites from the day.
