A Weekend Escape On The East Coast

It's not often that we get to go away without the children. I mean, trying to find someone who we trust to look after all three of our brood can be hard work. But when we do eventually get a night or 2 to ourselves, I love to look at weekend country escapes.

It means that we can have a break in the countryside, sleep in till the actual morning and go on long walks without lugging 3 children in tow, who need to stop every 2 minutes, with us.

Across the UK there's so much beautiful countryside to be explored, it's hard to choose where to visit - from the craggy hills of the Peak District to the serenity of the Lake District, Britain has some beautiful open spaces to be ventured into. But being a Yorkshire-person means that I love nothing more than exploring the North York Moors and the Eastern English coast.  

It's nice to have a look around and find a nice hotel in Robin Hood's Bay that is peaceful enough for us to spend a night or two in together's company. No hustle and bustle of the kids, just a few days quiet time as a couple. 

Not only is it situated in one of the most beautiful places, the North York Moors, but it also has so much to offer. With beautiful views, and stunning places to visit such as the old Wesleyan Chapel. As well as that, the book "Dracula" by Bram Stoker, written in 1897, has scenes set in the Robin Hood's Bay.

I'm planning treks up the many steps throughout Robin Hood's Bay and getting to visit the beautiful buildings. And then meals at the hotel restaurant with walks on the beach in the evening, as we all needs those Insta snaps of the sun setting over the ocean. 

When we do eventually get this break to ourselves, it'll be just that time together, revisiting our marriage and working on us as a couple. Because that's so important, making sure that you have some time together once in a while.
