Oh, we had the loveliest little break away, D and I.
We travelled in style, top down all the way! The weather was glorious.
Byfords was absolutely charming. It's a boutique-style hotel with a restaurant and a deli.
Byfords sits in the middle of Holt and is absolutely surrounded by gift and antique shops.
Our favourite place was the Antiques Emporium (thanks for the tip Top Chelsea Girl!). It was like a tardis - room after room stuffed to the rafters with vintage-everything. If only our boot space wasn't limited, I'd have ended up bringing home chimney pots for the garden, a Lloyd Loom chair, a dresser-full of crockery and an armful of linens but I was more than happy to settle for my Sylvac spaniel ...
Note to self, return to Holt next year in a pick-up truck! ;-)
So, in a nutshell, we ate, drank, shopped, chatted, drank, laughed, ate, shopped and ate some more!
It was soooo good to spend some quality time together.
I came back home slightly more chubsy and definitely a little bit more in love with my gorgeous husband!
Before I go, I haven't forgotten my 100 post giveaway ... news to follow shortly. In the meantime, guess what came in the post today ..?
I've only had a quick flick through so far but, without spoiling your pleasure, it looks every bit as good as the first issue!
