Jacuzzi time !


A short relaxing holiday to Raywell Hall lodges with a  hot tub-Jacuzzi was our treat this year in East Yorkshire.

Just a hour and half form us, but on the lower end of the East coast, a great base to visit some of Yorkshires nature reserves in the area and forty minuets from the sea.

The week before had been one of the hottest weeks this year , we were due rain all week ! having said that we had a good week despite the rain (not every day) but not as many photos as I would normally take!
The Lodges are situated in beautiful grounds with open fields one one side, we watched two Barn owls hunting, saw a Green Woodpecker and a family of young GSW. Baby Rabbits every were.
The Lodge was so nice and roomy I could have lived there.

Every night we spent two or three hours in the hot tub, even in the rain and wind, just put my bobble hat on. We watched bats flying till it was to dark to see.



A large area of shops, but best was the old part of town with some stunning buildings, to much rain and wind to stay out but we had a lovely lunch, "Yorkshire man's lunch" to share, so much we took the rest home for tea....











I loved this town, with it's quaint little shops, Beverley is known for it's Minster. The rain was even harder to day so no photos, we had hoped to go in the Minster but there was a funeral on. I would love to go back here, a lovely place.

Beverley Minster is renowned for the grace of its Gothic style. It contains elements of three styles: Early English, Decorated and Perpendicular. On the site where Beverley Minster stands prayers have been offered to God for 1300 years; many who visit the church today experience a sense of quiet and spiritual peace within its walls. Visitors to East Yorkshire are surprised to find in the relatively unknown town of Beverley one of the finest Gothic churches in Europe. (LINK)



Better day to day with a little sunshine, been to Brid before when we went to Bempton cliffs one year. Nice beach and you can see the passing birds. Town it's self looking a little tied but ok. The thing we noticed most to day was people taking dogs for a walk in prams along the sea front !












We are now into finding Green men while away on holiday thanks to Ragged Robin, so found this man... came home with us.



will be staying here again as we loved it so much, and we got it at a good price too...

    2. Sounds perfect... might need that by the time we're done with the house, hehe! Whispering Woods have a facebook page if you're on there or just keep an eye on their website as they travel around a bit and perform in various places... Durham and Bristol seem to be the next ones.

  2. Looks an amazing place to stay. And sounds lovely with all the surrounding wildlife. Some beautiful pictures. I have never been to any of the places you visited. They all look lovely from your pics, even in the rain.x

  3. Looks a super place to stay - so roomy and homely and love the idea of a hot tub :) What a shame you couldn't visit Beverley Minster but there is always next time :)

    Thanks so much for the mention and I am not surprised that Green Man came home with you - he is lovely :)

    Hull and Bridlington look lovely - super photos as always - your photography is always so creative :) Interesting about dogs in prams - we saw two being pushed around in prams at Blackgang Chine Isle of Wight - I couldn't believe what I was seeing!! :)

    Yorkshire Man's lunch looks rather scrumptious and we have done the same - been given too much and put some in a "doggy bag" for later.

    So glad you had a good time despite rain sometimes - a lovely post Amanda.

  5. How lovely and what a way to finish off each day trip! The grumpy look on the Gull did make me laugh! I'm not sure what the thing with dogs and prams is, I was shocked when I saw a dog pram for sale in the window of the pet shop in Leeds!

  6. The Lodge looks wonderful and comfortable too, I liked the old part of Hull , there are some fascinating buildings. Went to a concert once in Beverley Minster, hope you get to see inside next time you visit the area. The green man is wonderful. I had to smile at the dogs in pushchairs, all the years we've walked around Trentham lake we used to see and say good morning to an elderly lady with a very elderly dog, when the dog couldn't walk she pushed it around the lake in an old push chair. It brought a tear to my eye the day we saw her walking alone:)
