Once in a while, the need to escape the hustle and bustle of the city life, is a must. That feeling of being in the middle of the nature, with no noise, pollution or hectic surroundings – is priceless.
I have been fortunate to spend a few days at the beautiful Lime Wood for the last few days, a boutique country house hotel, set in the heart of the New Forest, just a wee hour and a half drive from London (thats all you really need to escape). My travel companion was good friend and fellow blogger Anna Hart, and we relaxed, pampered, walked (with her ridiculously cute dog Lopez – did I mention that the hotel is pet friendly?), and ate and drank so well. Stealing Anna’s gorgeous vintage Petit Bateau jumper, with my fave biker jacket from REISS, new Uterque skirt, trusted Chanel espadrilles and my retro Polaroid sunnies – we enjoyed our first night with a much needed girly night with champagne and a good natter.
From start to finish, this place was amazing and the ideal country retreat (without feeling too isolated – I am a loyal city girl, after all!) – make sure you check out my wellness site Sustain the Glow for a full review on all their facilities in a few weeks.
Away for 2 days yet feeling just enough rested and rejuvenated – ready to tackle the city again…
