The George Hathersage REVIEW

[AD – gifted meal] I’d heard such good things about this newly renovated country inn and gastro pub. It relaunched under new ownership not long ago. Everyone I know who has dined at The George has been very complimentary about it, so when I was recently invited for dinner I jumped at the opportunity. The […]

I would only ever recommend somewhere that I truly love… so it hasn’t been featured much on my blog, despite it being a really popular […]

Why I Love Haddon Hall Artisan Market

The seasonal Haddon Hall artisan market is a regular feature at this stunning period property. For full transparency, a year ago I received gifted entry to Haddon’s late summer Mercatum. We enjoyed it so much that we have returned to every market since as paying customers – and I haven’t received any incentive for writing […]

They are similar to a pancake (the thin crepe sort – not the fluffy American style) or a wheat tortilla in in both shape and texture. They are round (about the size of a side plate), soft and pliable. They […]

The Bottle Kiln West Hallam REVIEW

The Bottle Kiln in West Hallam is one of the loveliest places to have a relaxing al fresco lunch or coffee and catch up. Their expansive gift/lifestyle shops will have you lusting after all sorts of lovely things you really want (and probably don’t need). It’s the perfect place for gifts or to treat yourself. […]
