3 Unique Hideaways in the UKLike2

It’s funny how we always run away from our real age as we grow older. I know I have. It’s taking me a long time to realize though that age has given me what I was looking for my entire life – it has given me me . It has provided time and experience and failures and triumphs and time-tested friends who have helped me step into the shape that was waiting for me. I don’t fit into me right now perfectly yet, but I am trying. Sure, there are days where I fail and my head wonders…but then, it stabilizes pretty fast, you solve it.

The same goes for travel. As I mature and grow, so do my destinations.  It seems like everyone is making a bucket list to cross off but I can’t seem to keep up with my list from growing year after year. Seems I’m adding more rather than crossing off!  Here are few of my favorite unique hideaways…that I know of at least.

 

1. THE CHAPEL ON CLOUD ISLAND – Scotland

For a far-flung romantic getaway, this luxury chapel conversion on the Isle of Skye makes an ideal furlough. Complete with Scandi-style sauna and spa bath overlooking Loch Harport and the soaring mountains beyond, The Chapel on Cloud Island offers a unique self-catering experience like no other in Scotland. En suite shower room with walk-in shower and WC, large bathroom with sauna and spa bath and even a bbq! I can live here forever.

2. THE EDGE – England

Set in a cliff top location with a bird’s eye view of Whitsand Bay and the surrounding coast, The Edge is the perfect luxury self-catering beach hut for honeymoons with a difference. A modern take on a traditional Cornish beach hut, there’s a fresh flavour to the luxury interiors of this eco-friendly cedar-clad creation. With a floor-to-ceiling picture window offering views from your luxurious pillow, the only concern will be who’s on tea-making duty! It has a fully-equipped kitchen, TV/DVD player and radio/CD player/iPod dock Internet & Communications:Wi-Fi internet, An electric Weber BBQ. The setting of The Edge is a real wildlife haven, look out for cormorants, kestrels, peregrine falcons and dolphins.

3. THE BEACH HUT – England

First built in the 1920s for use as a genteel tearoom, The Beach Hut is the ultimate coastal hideaway. This unique beach shack in North Cornwall occupies an enviable nook on the edge of a stunning coastal 52 acre estate, making it an idyllic location to inspire writers, artists and lovers alike. By day, there are several golf courses, coastal walks and woodland rambles for explorers of any ability. As night falls, lovebirds can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner alongside the toasty woodburner; or snuggle up under a blanket on the rocking chair outside to stargaze from the veranda.

  • I’d like to wake up here again - without any expectations... even if it’s just for a little while. What about you?
  • This is my far far away 💞 
Where is yours?
  • I read once that “awareness is what keeps any relationship strong”... so, while I understand that we are the master of our own fate, understand that those around you play a major role in your life, but, don’t ever mistake kindness to weakness... 💫
  • Someone said to me today: “Some people are ‘once in a lifetime’ type of people. There is no upgrade after that.” That’s a whole new level of appreciation. 
Hope you have those people in your life. 
Have a beautiful weekend 💞
  • Take a deep breath, and remember who the f*** you are! ;) Good morning 💞
  • I’ve posted this photo many times and it’s still one of my favorite moments.
I listened to a podcast yesterday and it resonated with me so much on the topic of earning trust in the corporate world “Earning trust: consistency in your behavior - trust is developed and established through consistency in behavior” 
I’ve often said that if you have so much moodiness in your life, you will lack leadership and trust, It’s something I truly believe in people. If you want to earn trust, be consistent in your behavior, in your choices and your words... most importantly, in what you believe in... otherwise, people will pull back. Think about that for your Thursday mood :)
  • It’s been a while since I’ve done a just “pick up and go”. The picture I took from outside my room is a reminder of that time in Kenya. Yep, it’s a giraffe.
Lately, everything has been so planned and that spontaneous “go” is something I sort of miss. 
There are definitely few things I’d want to do... for example drive a motorhome somewhere far far away, surf in the arctic... re-visit Kenya... explore Latin America...those are just few of the things. 
If you were to pick up and go, where would you go and what would you do?
  • Summer in @ourfinland was one of my highlights of 2019. On a mission with @travelwithtjd - we explored the south coast and witness the magic of the midnight sun while driving North West. 
From cabin life by the lake, to glass houses by the sea. We hiked, went on road trips, went island hopping, ate a LOT, took ATVs, did BBQs and jumped into the lake!
Join @dennisstever and I on our @travelwithtjd Finland Summer Series on the 21st of June - 26th June 2020, as we take you through the coast and into the wilderness and experience the summer activities that Finland has to offer.

  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything I set my mind to. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. 
But, I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I almost never needed to escape from. I’ve started my year with intentions to keep me grounded... and I intend to focus more on them. 
This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
