As most of you know, I’ve been in a relationship with my boyfriend Kieran for almost a year now. Although we’ve been together for a while, we still like to make time for ‘date nights’. As I’m a student, expensive meals and nights out aren’t really the kind of date I would choose so today I’m bringing you a post of 10 dates that cost under £10!!

I’ve been wanting to do a lot of work around Mental Health and use my Blog to really help people. So when I was kindly offered the opportunity of reading and reviewing Gail Mitchell’s ‘Loving the Life Less Lived’* for Mental Health Awareness Week 2017, I couldn’t turn it down!

So I’ve seen so many Bloggers doing these type of posts and I thought they would be a perfect way to look back at all the things I got up to each month. So here is the first Monthly Round Up Post I will be doing for March 2017.

So, if you follow me on Snapchat, you will probably have seen that I spent this weekend away in the Lake District. We went for my boyfriend’s birthday and had a long weekend away in Greystoke. When we were looking I knew that we wanted to stay in a lodge so when I found the Thanet Well Lodge site, it was just what we wanted! And when we got there, it did not disappoint! We booked through Ho Seasons so I will leave the link at the bottom of the page.

The site is beautiful and obviously full of lodges. We stayed in an Elonby 2 style lodge and it was perfect for what we needed it for. The lodge was really open which we loved, with the living room, kitchen and dining area all in the first part of the lodge. It also had 2 bathrooms, one big bathroom and a bathroom in the master bedroom. The main bedroom had a dressing area as well as a little walk in wardrobe. Then there was another bedroom, which obviously we didn’t use, but it would be perfect for a family of four.

The staff on site were so friendly and helpful when we needed them and the whole site was so peaceful, which is just what we wanted. On the Saturday we went to the nearest lake which is Ullswater, where we went on the boat which takes you across the lake. It was so cold so we mainly spent our day in the different tearooms!

On the Sunday, we went back to the lake Ullswater, but a different side and went to a place called Glennriding. I wanted to go and see the waterfall at Aira Force, so we walked to pretty much the top of the waterfall.

I’m actually really sad to be home now, I loved our little weekend away. I would definitely go back to the lodges that we stayed in and we even spoke about having a look at other lodge sites they do and visiting somewhere else! I would definitely recommend Thanet Well Lodge, if you would like anymore information about the place then message me on Twitter @BethCarney_x
