Child-free Forest Holidays in Cropton

A child-free Forest Holiday in Cropton, Yorkshire | The World of Suzy Homemaker

You may remember that earlier this year, Forest Holidays packed us off to review their cabin site in Sherwood. As part of the ongoing work I'm doing with our favourite holiday company, Beloved and I recently invited four very good friends to join us for a long weekend in Cropton, North Yorkshire.

Unlike us, our friends still have school-age children at home, so they all but chewed off our arms at the chance to get away for an adults-only weekend!

When I asked for some feedback, one of our guests did such a marvellous job of reviewing her visit to the cabins, that she wrote my blog post for me.

Result! Well... it was pointless re-inventing the wheel, so I invited her to guest post on the blog instead. Over to you Silv!

Suzy of Sherwood - Cosying up in a cabin with Forest Holidays

Forest Holidays - Golden Oak cabin, Sherwood Forest | www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

Few things give me greater pleasure than spending quality time with Beloved. I love nothing more than cracking open a bottle of wine, sharing a nice meal and putting the world to rights.

It's what makes the rest of my world so enjoyable.

Throw in a weekend away and my world is complete... Especially if that weekend involves a cabin in the forest.

Hiding out in a log cabin with nothing but trees, birds and the odd mammal to disturb us is our idea of heaven. From the moment we arrive, it's like coming home. Our shoulders drop and we feel instantly relaxed.

Holiday highlights from a summer staycation

Definition of Staycation - www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

It feels like FOREVER since my last post! Did you miss me?

I hear you. "Oh THERE you are, Mrs Homemaker and where do you think you've been, huh? Call yourself a blogger? Neglecting your readers?"

I know, I know. I'm sorry...!

In my defence, it IS holiday season and Beloved and I had ourselves a well-earned break last week. Since then... well it's just been mental here at SueCo Towers, with no time for blogging.

Merħba Malta!

Suzy Homemaker's Cunard Mediterranean Competition Pinterest Board

When I received a post earlier this week from a fellow blogger, I knew I needed an immediate trip to Malta.

Huh?

Well it turns out that Cunard has teamed up with Jen Stanbrook at Love Chic Living and Denise Grayson at The Swelle Life, to offer fellow bloggers the chance to win £1,000 of John Lewis vouchers.

All we have to do is choose one of Cunard's Mediterranean cruise destinations and create a mood board on Pinterest of all the images from this port of call which inspire us to bring the Mediterranean into our homes.

Four go glamping in a converted church

Four go glamping in a converted church - www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

What with both our Birthdays AND our Wedding Anniversary, May is a big month here at OneandSeventy and to celebrate, Beloved and I like to take off for a week. It's become something of a tradition to retreat to the forest and we can usually be found hiding out in a log cabin run by Forest Holidays.

Hello May!

Welcome to May with www.suzy-homemaker.co.uk

May is my absolute favourite month of the year.

It could be because it's a big celebration month here at OneandSeventy. Not only are Beloved and I both bulls, it also happens to be the month we were married. It's hard to believe that in a few short weeks, we'll be celebrating 21 years since tying the knot on Waikiki beach.
