We have a fantastic guest blog post about surfing in Wales from Phillip Morris who stayed at gorgeous Bury Holt…
It’s cold. Not bitter. But cold enough to chill you to the core and make you feel like you might never warm up again. I’m down to my swimming shorts, dripping wet and standing in a car park in South Wales, shivering in the sea breeze, the wet gravelly mud pushing up between my toes. The low winter sun eclipses the maze of sand dunes rising before me as I struggle out of my wetsuit after a couple of hours being bashed about by waves.

A warm welcome awaits guests at Robin Hood Cottage this winter with a hearty three course meal waiting for you in this Peak District Retreat…
Guests staying at Robin Hood Cottage from November through January (excl Xmas & New Year) will enjoy:
an antipasta selection to start, Dave’s home-made winter stew and rounded off beautifully with one of Emily’s delicious puddings.
A boutique base from which to explore the Peak District and Derbyshire Dales at any time of year and with Chatsworth House on the door step there is always so much to explore and discover.
We speak to Wendy and Graham owners of Spring Barn to find out what nearby places are special to them and their top tips of things to see and do.
“We have a number of places that we like to visit time and time again. There is simply too much to do in the area, we’re spoilt for choice. We often visit Dolgellau and Mawddach estuary where we have regular haunts,though it depends on who we have with us. Whenever we have children with us it’s a great an excuse to go crabbing at Aberdovey”
Emily and Dave made a big life decision to leave the city behind and instead live at a different pace with a complete change of lifestyle in the Derbyshire Dales.
They chose The Peak District and Baslow because it remains unspoilt yet has so much to do particularly for lovers of the outdoors and dog owners like Emily and Dave.
Taking time to get to know and enjoy the area whilst they renovated an old farmhouse and Robin Hood Cottage they now have lots of inside tips for recommended places to eat, shop & visit and help you live like a local during your holiday there.
Escape to a special place to enjoy wrapping up your festive shopping
Laundry Cottage transports you to one of the most desirable villages in England, Combe Hay.
A picture postcard, grade 2 listed, traditional stone cottage made sociable and inviting with its locally sourced, antiques, contemporary furnishings and plenty of luxurious toppings. There’s a ‘Good Food Guide’ pub within walking distance and just 10 minutes drive from the centre of Bath makes it a truly special place to stay.
Want to try something different whilst on holiday?
New skills that do us good (and preferably don’t involve press-ups in a muddy field). And what better skill than cooking, eh?
Our cottages have some wonderful kitchens so we have teamed up with some friends here in The Cotswolds to bring private cookery classes to you in selected Sheepskin properties. Designed around your interests, these relaxed and entertaining classes take place in the comfort of your Cotswold Sheepskin cottage and focus on seasonal recipes that are easy to recreate. They’ll even do all the washing up.
Gluts & Gluttony was founded by Kathy who will be your private tutor for the day. She trained at Ashburton Cookery School, works at Daylesford Cookery School and is a jobbing private chef for hire. Her classes are inspiring and relaxed and are the perfect activity to enjoy whilst on holiday for an alternative learning experience.

The phrase that many parents know only too well, usually called within the first hour of a four hour journey. But with a bit of planning the journey can be relatively stress free.
