REVIEW | Manor House, West Yorkshire

I love that the Manor House in Lindley is near enough for a quick overnight getaway but that as you pull into the driveway you could literally be hundreds of miles from home. It’s set back from the quiet buzz of the high street which, due to its great independent shops, bars and restaurants, has been in the past referred to as the “Knightsbridge of the North”.

REVIEW | Gaucho, Leeds

The thought of a delicious rare steak with my favourite blue cheese all washed down with a full-bodied red was getting me all hot under the collar. Or maybe that was the fact that I was in the early stages of pregnancy…! My dream meal was staying just that.  On the plus side, I knew my companion would fully partake in my aforementioned dinner of choice, so it gave me a good opportunity to try out what else was on offer.

REVIEW | The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey – The Yorkshire Dales

The Devonshire Arms at picture-perfect Bolton Abbey on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales is one of Yorkshire’s most fabulous and intimate places to stay. It's old school, luxurious, and a proper treat for anyone looking for a romantic 24 hours.For me, the hotel's location always congers up scenes from the original hit musical; Mary Poppins, where Dick-Van-Dyke chalks a perfect picture of the English countryside and they all dive in for a day out in the country.

REVIEW | The Devonshire Arms Inn at Beeley – The Peak District

My mantra has always been that a hotel room is a means to an end. It’s a bed that you need after visiting somewhere far more interesting than the four walls where you sleep. How can a hotel room really be much different from another? Oh, how wrong I was. The Devonshire Arms at Beeley, hands down, the nicest hotel room I have ever had the pleasure to stay in. Period.

REVIEW | Ye Olde Bell Hotel & Spa – Sheffield

Ye Olde Bell must have been listening to my prayers, because it felt like I had literally won the golden ticket when they got in touch inviting me for a kid-free spa weekend. Jaded by pregnancy and the whirlwind of baby twins, I had literally been waiting for a weekend like this for a what seems a lifetime. Relaxation, pamper, food, wine and a good nights’ sleep. I couldn’t help but set high expectations for what Ye Olde Bell was going to offer me.

REVIEW | The Ivy, Leeds

Tuesday is apparently the most depressing day of the week. The previous weekend feels like it never happened and the upcoming one seems like a lifetime away. Well I love Tuesdays – especially when you get invited to dine at the newest kid on the Victoria Quarter block, The Ivy, Leeds.
