Oh Iona, you beauty

Today’s adventure took us to the Isle of Iona. We caught the first ferry from Fionnphort which was at 9:55am. It cost £3.50 for a return to Iona and took 10 mins. Don’t think that’s bad when you pay £10 to get to Hull from Driffield, return. The views on Iona were just breathtaking. Abbey […]

‘Mull of surprises’

I’m currently writing this while laid in my tent. On a beach. Listening to the wind hit my tent and the waves rolling along the shore. Helen had mentioned that she was planning a trip to the Isle of Mull and Iona on Saturday. Today is Monday and I am currently in Mull, grateful for […]

You never truly love something, until you appreciate it.

I was born in Scarborough but raised in Driffield. Driffield is the Capital of the Wolds in East Yorkshire. The Wolds are full of peaceful scenery, rolling hills and lots of wildlife.

A morning at Beningbrough Hall and Gardens

The weather is absolutely shite at the moment, but I NEEDED to get out of my flat into the fresh air of the countryside so today’s trip was to Beningbrough Hall and Gardens, North Yorkshire. Beningbrough Hall is located 8 miles away from the beautiful city of York and is surrounded by such breathtaking grounds […]

Tour around Treasurer’s House, York

Seen as it was a nice day and Jack and I are National Trust members, we walked into York city centre and visited the Treasurer’s House. The building was originally built for Treasurers of York Minster and then was owned by a wealthy collector until 1930. Then he kindly gave it to the National Trust […]

Roseberry Topping

Todays adventures took us to Roseberry Topping, on the Cleveland Way in Redcar and Cleveland. It’s located at Great Ayton, the boyhood home of the great explorer, Captain Cook. First of all, it seemed to take us ages to get to there! I’ve never seen Driffield and Malton so busy. With it being a beautiful […]
