Spring getaway 

There’s nothing better than a little mini break to soothe away the stresses of daily life.

After a crazy few weeks, last weekend I packed my little trolley case and headed off to Winchester to celebrate my friend’s birthday. 

We got a really good deal at the Winchester Hotel & Spa – I’ve stayed there before with the same group for a hen do and it was great fun, lovely service and delicious food.  This time was the same. 


On the last visit we didn’t get to explore Winchester, but this time we decided to take a lovely walk around the town exploring the cute shops and had a look at the beautiful cathedral.  Winchester is a city but you wouldn’t think it at first as its really like a little village at first glance.  

We popped in to a really lovely shop called The Hambledon that we stayed in far too long.  It has so much stationery I was like a kid in a sweet shop!

The shop had a copy of my favourite book, Anne of Green Gables in a really lovely hardback design, which I just had to buy. In fact me and my two friends all bought a copy!   

So many delights in one place – if you’re ever in Winchester you must pop in and visit.  


There are so many nice places in the UK and it’s easy to forget there are new things to see and do in your own country rather than jetting off abroad when choosing a mini break. 

A change of scenery was lovely and refreshing and I highly recommend it and a visit to any place you’ve never been.
