This month marks four years since Tom and I first got together, so to celebrate we decided to drive up to Yorkshire to spend the weekend in this pretty vintage caravan that Tom spotted on Airbnb. It's located in a pretty rambling garden in the small village of Helperby, a few miles outside of York.
Anyway, we had a good weekend nonetheless and instead of road tripping to the seaside as planned we spent a relaxing evening in the caravan with just a game of scrabble and the radio for company. It was a lovely chance to unwind, and the rain on the tin roof made us feel all the more cosy!
It was a shame that the rain prevented us from trying the outdoor bath though, so another weekend up there some time may be in order. The owners of the caravan, Margie & Humph (and their friendly dogs) were ever so welcoming and they even left us a selection of breakfast goodies to cook in the morning (handy when you're feeling a little stranded in the remote countryside!).
On Sunday we finally made it to York and had a wonderful walk around the Minster, which was beautiful in the sunshine. We also had some scrummy food at a veggie cafe called Goji, which I'd heartily recommend if you are ever in York. I had a butternut squash & goat's cheese wrap and Tom had a veggie hot-dog with all the trimmings! Yum. It was a lovely getaway and, despite the car mishaps it was great to have a break from city life for a couple of days. How was your Bank Holiday?
