Kimbridge Barn- Romsey, Hampshire

Romsey, UK

Cute autumnal coffee & lunch dates with mumma & my grandparents 🤍

We went to Kimbridgebarn, situated in Romsey, Hampshire, which is one of my favourites, the coffees are amazing, as are the cakes & food! I have been here a few times now and always so so good!

We sat in the cosy restaurant area called the Bootroom, which had a lovely fire on, and cute little armchairs. My granddad loved telling us how it used to be a meat, fruit & veg shop and where the butchers area was 😁😁

Highly recommended a visit if you haven’t been yet. So pretty with all the pumpkins on the walkway over the water too 🎃

Let me know of any cute coffee places I need to visit!

New Forest

This is a beautiful place to visit in the New Forest. (We went before we went on our summer holiday) They have a variety of animals to see and lots of informative talks from the keepers throughout the day and at the animals feeding times. We saw lots of otters, owls, wallaby’s, badgers, a huge variety of deer, bison & our favourite the wolves! 🐺 

They have two really big adventure play parks for the children to play in where we stopped to have lunch and are able to still see the animals around us. 

Tickets are £14.75 for adults 

£11.25 children 3-15 years 

Or they do family tickets 2a 2c or 1a 3c for £44

Great for a family day out if you are ever near the New Forest or Southampton 🍂

Let me know if you manage to visit and what you think!

Pamukkale & Hieropolis- Turkey


P A M U K K A L E  &  H I E R O P O L I S


Hierapolis is an ancient Roman spa city founded around 190 B.C. Ruins there include a well-preserved theatre and a necropolis with sarcophagi that stretch for 2km. The Antique Pool also called Cleopatras pool, is famous for its submerged Roman columns as the result of an earthquake. 

Pamukkale Antique Pool is a natural wonder and UNESCO World Heritage site is located in the ancient city of Hierapolis. The warm mineral-rich “champagne water” that fills the pool sits just under 100°F and is believed to have therapeutic healing properties.

You do pay a fee on top of the price of admission but being able to swim between ancient columns and amongst the marble ruins in this beautifully historical warm, mineral infused water is not to be missed! 

This whole site is extremely large, we did an excursion which was approximately a 3.5 hour drive from where we were staying (a very early start 🤪) and we had 3 hours once we got in to explore alone and go where we wanted. We started off at the pool then took a walk past the museum to see the Pamakkule which stands for “cotton palace” an unreal landscape, made up of mineral forests, petrified waterfalls and a series of terraced basins. (Will share photos of this later) 

Once we had been in a few of the white basins, we grabbed an ice cream in the shade as it was so hot, and then walked around taking in the beautiful sites of the old ruins, up to the theatre. This was up hill and was a little hard with the heat & pushchair but we made it! 

Finally we stopped for some lunch on the way back which was included in the tour (and very delicious) then headed back ready for an early night! 

Oh it was also my birthday 🥳 I felt very blessed to be experiencing all this with my family 🤍 we had another early start the next day as had an all day boat trip. Safe to say we were fairly tired! 

Where is the most spectacular place you have visited? Let me know in the comments below!
