Living like a millionaire…

I promised you guys in a previous blog post and YouTube video that I would share some photos of the gorgeous house I stayed in for a week in Huddersfield. As explained, I visited there for a little getaway trip with my boyfriend and his family. His mum had chosen this house herself and particularly aimed for something really big and fancy… We definitely got that! I just had to share these photos with you…

The house was three floors high, had it’s own gym, jacuzzi baths, and even a pool on the ground floor!

It was an odd feeling staying in a house with gigantic windows and little to no blinds or curtains. I am big about natural sunlight but there’ll be no walking about in the nude allowed!

If you are interested in where this lovely home can be found, here is a link to their website. I would love to hear about some awesome places you’ve stayed in and the type of accommodation you look for on holiday!

Taking a little break… | NinkComPoop

Breaks are important. Week long ones, two week long ones, day ones, even just a couple hour ones. If we don’t take them often enough, we can easily overwork ourselves and burn ourself out…

My boyfriend asked me whether I fancied a week away with his family in the middle of Huddersfield (close to Manchester if your Geography is terrible like mine). All I knew was that his lovely mummy wanted a break away for her birthday with all her children. Of course I jumped to the opportunity and felt that it was a great excuse to look forward to something while in the dreary month of February (have I ever told you how much I hate February?).

Throughout our time there in this absolutely huge cottage (cottage blog post to come!), we had a few little walks around the area. However, Huddersfield is one of the hilliest areas I have ever been to, so a “quick pop” to the shop turned into a sweaty half hour hike. This kind of holiday was almost a ‘first’ for me, as most holidays I’ve previously been on have involved lots of planning and arrangements for various sights, areas and activities. It was a nice change to just sit sipping whiskey and playing card games in a fancy looking mansion and pretending we were rich for a week!

I managed to take some snaps of just a few of my favourite sightings. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I just had to take a photo of this cash machine. Yes, that’s a cash machine. But also a phone box… Can you even get anything more perfect?

We had to take a drive into York while we were near the area to do a spot of shopping (keep eyes peeled on my channel for a haul by the way…). The buildings in York were just beautiful, particularly down The Shambles (a famous street lined with timber-framed buildings housing a range of touristy shops).

Within the Cathedral, there was a little area where you were able to light a candle for friends or family who have passed.

To finish off, a lovely picture of Adam sat beside a fancy Prosecco cocktail…

Isn’t he dishy? 😉

Let me know in the comments your favourite places to visit when you need a small escape and why. I’d love to hear them!

Best,
