Travel | Bedruthan Hotel & Spa, Cornwall…

Fancy a hour long retreat in a beautiful garden in Cornwall?  Well, the Sensory Spa Garden at the Bedruthan Hotel & Spa is just what you need.  Last weekend, Dan and I were treated to a blissful morning, indulging in body scrubs, a sauna and hot tub in the sunshine.

Bedruthan Hotel has been on my radar for a while now, as I’ve know school friends who have taken a break there with their family.  A hotel that is totally geared up for young kids as well as teens, it’s a chance for the whole family to relax and soak in that beautiful view of the Atlantic Ocean.

This weekend we visited the Cotswolds with an overnight stay at Lords of the Manor Hotel in the pretty village of Upper Slaughter.  A typically stunning Cotswold village, with honey coloured houses with roses around the front door, even a ford in the village.  I could imagine a film being set there, it is so picturesque.

Interiors | Biophilic Design with Habitat [ad]…

Those of you who have been reading this blog for years, may very well remember my series called ‘Nature in the Home’.  It was all about creating a home which complimented inside and outside.  Bringing in items of nature such as branches, seeds, fir cones, flowers etc inside and using them within an interiors setting.

Little did I know back then, that there is an actual name for it – Biophilic Design.
