Last week I spent five glorious days in the Isle of Wight. After leaving it far too late and missing all the summer sunshine, myself and my boyfriend decided to swap the week on a sunny beach for a 'staycation' and headed to our home from home. My parents own a holiday cottage on the island which has been in the family for generations and we rent it out during the summer months. I have been going there my whole life with my family, and now it is the perfect retreat for a couples getaway!
I was a little sceptical about spending so much time there as there really isn't much to do- walking, eating and drinking is pretty much all you can do... and that is what we did! We had such a lovely, relaxing week of catching up on sleep, watching lots of films, going on long, countryside walks, and of course, eating and drinking far too much! Evenings were spent by the fire with a glass of wine and a good film and days were spent walking on the beach and discovering the islands hidden gems! It was so nice to get out of the city and to have no plans at all and not have to worry about anything! Bliss!
