Happy Saturday everyone! How are you? How was your week? Looking forward to another bank holiday weekend? Yup me too, the Young Man and I are heading to Lancaster and Crafty Vintage today, what are your plans?
I love this time of year! As soon as the bank holidays start to kick in, it seems every weekend, and at least one week night is filled up with exciting plans! In May alone I have a weekend in Brighton lined up followed by one in Wales, and last weekend, as you'll have seen from my instagram, I was in Lincoln.
The weekend was a reunion with some of my favourite people in the world, and I can't begin to explain how lucky we got to find our stunning airbnb. A converted barn/stable on a farm, 20 minutes out of Lincoln itself. It was beautiful, lambs in the field opposite, and those beautiful golden fields surrounding us. It was the perfect place to relax and get some much needed clear head space!
I've only ever been to Lincoln for the Christmas Markets before, and it was years ago, so I remembered that the city was pretty, but I also remembered it as smelling like Bratwurst so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, but I definitely wasn't disappointed.
Saturday morning we headed into town and our first stop was the cathedral. It is so big! In my head it was going to be like York Minster, which is pretty sizeable but WOW Lincoln Cathedral is something else!
We then wandered down Steep Hill, popping in and out of the shops. I was very tempted by a vintage dress or a hundred, but was very good, and only purchased a coffee! From a place I would have recommended if it hadn't been a 20 minute wait on hot drinks! I mean I love a well crafted coffee but that's going a step too far!
We then wandered in and out of the shops, and I put my camera away because if you've seen one h&m you've seen them all amiright?
Then it was back up Steep Hill which I'd foolish proclaimed to be 'not that steep.' when we were at the bottom of it.
After I'd finished eating my words about steep hill and caught m breath back we headed to Bunty's Tea Room, which came highly recommended by Chloe. Every single cake looked delicious, but I opted for a whopping slice of Guinness cake, which I'm ashamed to say I couldn't finis! Not that it wasn't delicious it was just too big!
After all that cake we decided it would be sensible to walk some of it off, so headed to the Castle and paid to do the wall walk. We got so lucky as the day brightened up ad the views of the cathedral and over the town were beautiful.
That evening we headed to Laguna Verde which is out at Burton Waters. I didn't take my camera but the restaurant looked out on a harbour (is that the right word when it's not by the sea) and the food was incredible! I would highly recommend heading their for dinner if you ever find yourself in Lincoln, even though it's about a 10 minute drive from the city centre.
Sunday was a chilled out affair, back to the city centre, in search of a Sunday pie, before heading home... but not before making our way back to play in the yellow fields!
Here's hoping every weekend away we have coming up lives up to this one! Hope you have a lovely bank holiday, speak to you next week x
