My favourite places to eat out in Cheltenham

This week marks seven years since I sat down to write my first blog post. Little did I know that I would still be sat here typing away on my laptop, creating content on this corner of the blogosphere seven years on. So to celebrate, I want to share seven of my favourite places to eat out in Cheltenham. Please note that there are many more I also enjoy visiting, so it was difficult narrowing it down to just seven. I want to give you a broad idea of the many different types of cuisine you can enjoy across the town, whatever the budget or occasion. Some of these are also great date night locations – in case you’re stuck for somewhere to take your other half this Valentines Day! 

A Mini Break to Brighton

Fresh from our mini break to Brighton, I wanted to compile a few of our favourite spots we visited during our stay. For our first time in the East Sussex seaside resort, we didn’t have any firm plans in place. We knew we wanted to explore the lanes, spend some time on the beach and walk along the pier, but everything else was up in the air. It was the perfect escape, which came at exactly the right time for both of us. Whether you’ve been before or are planning your first visit, I hope this gives you an idea of what you can do for a short break away to Brighton.

A Weekend at Wychwood Festival

Two festivals in a week – I wasn’t joking in my last post when I said that festival season was upon us! Keeping it local again, we headed to the Cheltenham Racecourse for music, food and other activities at the festival that Time Out calls “an excellent hybrid of the Big Chill, WOMAD and The Cambridge Folk Festival.” Celebrating its 15th year, here is what you can expect from a weekend at Wychwood Festival…

Wellington Sunday at The Lygon Arms

For me, Sundays have always been about spending the day with loved ones and taking trips out to different corners of the Cotswolds. There are three key elements to what makes up my perfect Sunday – adventure, lots of laughter and plenty of good food and drink. Not necessarily a roast, but if you are looking for somewhere a little bit special that can offer delicious food and beautiful setting, let me tell you about Wellington Sunday at The Lygon Arms in Broadway.

The Cotswold Airport Revival Festival

Let’s escape back to the good old days for one weekend… The Cotswold Airport Revival Festival invites you to step back in time for a vintage and wartime extravaganza.

The revival may be over for this year but I hope this post will encourage you to mark your calendars for 2019 and come along to the next event…

Confetti Fields, Worcestershire

If you haven’t heard about the confetti fields in Worcestershire, I’m not quite sure where you’ve been. Open for just 10 days at the end of June/start of July, this flower field has become an Instagrammer’s pastel paradise and can be found all over social media. Whilst you’ll have to wait another year to capture the beauty with your own eyes (and cameras), here are a few snaps from my recent visit which may tempt you to add it to your 2019 calendar…

Let’s Catch Up: What’s Happening in Cheltenham

Well, look at that! Two months has flown by without me creating any new content. It’s not that I haven’t thought about it, I’ve definitely had all the guilty feels about neglecting my little corner of the internet. Sometimes, when life gets busy and sweeps you off your feet, it can feel a little overwhelming and all you want to do when you get home is pop on your pyjamas and curl up on the sofa watching Love Island. With plenty of new content to look forward to over the coming weeks, I thought I’d kick it off with a “let’s catch up” and chat about what’s happening in Cheltenham.

Switching from an iPhone to Google Pixel

I never thought I’d see the day where I would switch my iPhone to an Android. The Google Pixel won my heart earlier this year, a few weeks after my partner had also made the change.  The camera is phenomenal! 2018 has brought many changes to my life so I thought, “why not make another change?”

Read on to find out why the Google Pixel really is a game changer for me…

Workshops at The Willow Tree

A creative at heart, I’m always eager to try something new. Whether it’s a new skill, hobby or simply learning how on earth to use manual focus on my camera – as long as I can fit it in with my busy lifestyle, I’m keen to try it. As soon as I heard that The Willow Tree in Cheltenham put on a variety of workshops in store, I couldn’t wait to give it a go.

Budleigh Salterton, Beach Breaks UK

I spend a lot of time down by the Devon coastline. It’s become a second home to me over the years due to family and friends living there, and I like to think of it as my little ‘escape’ from reality. Budleigh Salterton is located on the Jurassic Coast in east Devon and happens to be the cutest weekend getaway. During a brief visit last weekend, I became all inspired to start sharing some of my favourite beach breaks with you on the blog.

The first of a few in this new series of posts, I hope you feel all inspired to make some summer plans in darling Devon…
