Our Valentine's Escape



Welcome to the final part of my Valentine's mini series. Yes, I know it's all over now but if you would like to read the other two posts in my series then you can find them here and here (make sure to come back though!)

This week I want to share with you how I spent Valentine's Day. Right now my blog seems to consist mainly of tips and advice and although that's a format I love, I really want my blog to become more personal to me so that I get to share more of my life with you and it also becomes something for me to look back on in years to come and remember the great times I've had.


The Hotel 



So my boyfriend Tom and I found this INSANE deal on groupon which entitled us to a night's stay and breakfast at the Felbridge Hotel in East Grinstead, which is about an hour away from where we live. It was nice to get away from home for a night but it was also great that it wasn't too far away so we didn't have to spend long travelling. 

When we arrived we were greeted by a lovely man at reception who explained everything to us as we had never stayed there before and he showed us to our room. He made us feel so welcomed which was something I was worried about, being a young couple with a groupon voucher in this rather posh hotel, I thought the staff might act a bit snooty towards us but they weren't at all! 

When we got into the room it was quite small but lovely and definitely worth it since we got a very good deal. On the screen they put a little welcome message "Welcome Bayes, Beth" which was super cute. The bed was amazing! So comfy that when I got back into my own bed the night after it felt like I was sleeping on wood. 

When we opened the wardrobe door we saw free tea and coffee! Which is always a bonus for us, especially as Tom is a complete tea addict. 

The only thing I would say against the room is that the door was really heavy so much so that Tom was the one who had to open it every time we wanted to go in or out the room. Luckily he was there I don't know how I would have managed if it was just me or me and my mum.

The Spa

We also had access to the spa which was really exciting. We decided not to book in a massage or treatment this time as they were slightly above our budget but we could still use the pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna and to be honest, that was enough. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of the spa as we didn't want to take our phones down there and honestly I would have felt a bit weird taking pictures of other people in their swimwear especially as there were children in there.



Dinner



We decided to eat away from the hotel as nothing on their menu really took our fancy. Instead we went to a small, family run Chinese restaurant a couple of minutes away. I'm not a huge fan of Chinese food but this was lovely! I ordered the Chicken Red Thai Curry with Chicken Fried Rice, however this was way too much and I felt terrible as it looked like I had barely eaten anything but it was just so filling! I'm pretty sure it filled me up until dinner the following day.





Breakfast



Breakfast was included in our deal which was very exciting because FREE BREAKFAST! We both opted for the full English of course! The sausages were absolutely divine, even just thinking about them makes me hungry. Actually, yeah, excuse me I need to go and cook myself some sausages right now! The only disappointing part was that we got there quite late and they had run out of baked beans! This was obviously heart breaking for me but the food was good non the less and it was my own fault for not getting up earlier!

Overall Tom and I had such a lovely time and we were really sad to come home. We definitely will be going there again and may even book in a spa treatment next time! This was also the first time in our 3 year relationship that we've ever really done something to celebrate Valentine's so this made it extra special for us!










I hope you enjoyed this post! Let me know if you'd like to read more like this or if you enjoyed the mini series and would like me to do more of them! I'd also love to know how you spent you Valentine's Day. 

See you next time,
