Summer at Great Dixter, East Sussex, England

Scotney Castle, Kent, England

Bodiam Castle, East Sussex, England

The most incredible castle I have visited!

 

Great Dixter House and Gardens, East Sussex, England

This has been just one of the many times I have visited Great Dixter and is still somewhere I would like to go back. The gardens are beautifully set out in a huge variety of styles that are different every time you visit. The best time of year to go would definitely be June, July or August but it is also lovely in spring.

A few days away in Plymouth, South West England

Despite the weather being a little temperamental had a lovely couple of days in Plymouth, Devon.  The city is not particularly nice but once you get to the coast the sea views are great. The red and white lighthouse really makes the scene. There are cafes and restaurants every few hundred metres, Barbican harbour is also a great place to go with lots of options from bars to pubs. The only criticism is that there weren’t enough people about, something I rarely say but possibly just due to the time of year.

Langton Matravers, Dorset

Incredible weekend spent in Dorset, Southern England a great place to go on holiday, there is so much to see from the beautiful ruin of Corfe castle to the stunning coastline. Despite it only being mid March the sun was shinning and it was t-shirt weather. We camped at Tom’s Field camp ground which was a great spot made up of a few small fields surrounded by classic stone walls, a lovely quiet spot.

The Quaint Fishing Village Of Clovelly

Clovelly is a lovely fishing village that has been stopped in time. It is situated on the north west coast of Devon in the south west of England. The streets are too thin for cars so everyone has to park up on the cliff and walk down the steep cobbled streets into the village. The locals all have sledges propped up against the side of their houses used to transport things up and down the street. It is an adorable place to visit unlike anywhere I have been before with stunning views out to sea, highly recommended.

Croyde Beach, North Devon

Croyde Beach is a hotspot for surfers in South West England. It’s a great place to visit whether you want to surf or just enjoy watching others paddle around in the freezing cold water. The town nearby has lots of nice pubs and cafes making it a great place to spend the day. If you wanted to stay longer there are some lovely looking apartments and hotels right on the beach. The weather was great during the weekend which made it feel like summer despite it being early March. Exmoor National Park is also less than an hour away from Croyde so if you’re planning to visit the South West this is the place to go.
