A Serendipitous Night in Dalby Forest (Plus Things to Do Nearby)

A Serendipitous Night in Dalby Forest (Plus Things to Do Nearby)

Dalby Forest
Oh Yorkshire, why are you so beautiful? As much as I love living in the centre of Leeds, I also love the fact that there is so much more to explore in Yorkshire, all of it beautiful. I don't get to experience it as much as I would like to because a) I don't have a car so I either need to use public transport or hire a car; and b) I often find it cheaper to get a short-haul flight and a cheap hotel abroad than to stay somewhere in the UK. But when I do have a 'staycation' in Yorkshire it's always fabulous - and one of my favourites was at a stunning cabin in Dalby Forest where I spent a snowy February night between exploring the surrounding area.
Things To Do In And Around Helmsley, North Yorkshire

Things To Do In And Around Helmsley, North Yorkshire

Helmsley
It's a known fact that Yorkshire is the best county, right? So much so, that earlier this year when I was desperate for a few days away but feeling too anxious to travel, I opted for a break in my home county and spent a long weekend in Helmsley. Helmsley is a beautiful market town in the North Yorkshire Moors National Park and makes for a great weekend away exploring this part of the world. There are plenty of things to do in Helmsley and the surrounding areas, here are just a few of them.

Crib Goch and Snowdon: Where to Stay, What to Expect, Where to Eat

Crib Goch and Snowdon: Where to Stay, What to Expect, Where to …

Wales
I'd never been to Wales before, but in preparation for our Italian High Level Route trip in a couple of months, daddy Miller suggested a sprint up Crib Goch and Snowdon. I was a little apprehensive because it was such a long way to travel from Leeds for one day of hiking, especially when the Yorkshire countryside is stunning enough for me, but I can now confirm that it was 100% worth it!
Sleeping on the Caledonian Sleeper: A Guest Post

Sleeping on the Caledonian Sleeper: A Guest Post

Did you know that blogging is actually a genetic trait? That's right, and today I'm publishing a guest post from my wonderful blogger mum, Christine. When mum mentioned that she was going on the Caledonian Sleeper to Shetland, I was mega intrigued and over the moon when she agreed to write a guest post for Adventures With Nell all about it. Enjoy!
My First Solo Trip: A Slow Weekend in Devon

My First Solo Trip: A Slow Weekend in Devon

Devon
As I was throwing myself into a slightly different type of holiday (i.e. solo), I decided that this was the perfect opportunity to adjust my travel mindset. Instead of cramming as much in as possible in a bid to see, eat and drink everything the area had to offer, my main focus would be to rest, relax and do exactly what I felt like doing. I made no plans whatsoever and simply played it by ear.
How to Have the Perfect Weekend in Southwold

How to Have the Perfect Weekend in Southwold

Southwold

Southwold holds many happy memories for me: as a kid I'd spend almost every October half term there on bike rides and in the arcade, and as a teenager weekends there would revolve around chasing boys and wangling invites to beach parties. Now as an adult (sort of!) I don't visit very often, but when I do I'm reminded of what a happy and wonderful place it is. Here's my guide to how to spend a weekend in Southwold.

Eating My Way Around Manchester

Eating My Way Around Manchester

Manchester
Despite Manchester only being an hour away from home, I pretty much know nothing about it. So when Billy whisked me away for the weekend to see Jersey Boys at the theatre (which was great by the way, definitely recommend!) I took the opportunity to experience the city in the best way I know how... via my taste buds.
A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

A Day Out in London and Some Fabulous Dim Sum

London
After spending a few festive days with my family in Buckinghamshire, I took the opportunity to spend the day being a tourist in London on my way back up to Leeds. With so much to see and do in this wonderful (and somewhat overwhelming) city, the hardest part was actually planning the day and, of course, where to have lunch!
