Easter Holidays - the holiday home

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter.

We had a packed one and i have so many photos to show you!!!
The next few posts will be about our Easter. Pictures from my camera/instagram/photoadaychallenge.

In this post i am going to show you the lovely cottage we stayed in last week:

We booked a fairly last minute week to the New Forest. After visiting for a weekend last year i just had to go back to see more!!!
My first few choices were fully booked. But i have to say, Spring cottage felt like home straight away. It was a lot bigger than i thought and was in a lovely position.

We arrived on Good Friday. The very lovely owners left us cupcakes and an Easter egg each.

 The living room is spacious, there were games and a nice selection of books and toys:

Our bedroom was spacious, with the most comfy king size bed i've ever slept in. We also had a nice ensuite.

The boys room was lovely. This cottage is very child friendly. They ask you the age and sex of the children. Which when i arrived i realized was probably to set the room up with blue duvets and dinosaur toys!!

The garden is so pretty and very safe for the kiddies. We had a wonderful Easter egg hunt (i'll show you that in another post)

The entrance hall is nice and large - perfect for our muddy boots.

The New forest ponies are so close that the large driveway and garden are behind gates that have to be kept shut at all times to avoid the ponies creating havoc!!

More on our Easter and the New Forest coming soon!!!

I am looking forward to catching up on what you have all been up to and i will be going round and looking at LissyLous Vintage Easter Swap goodies - i hope you all recieved your parcels?


Todays lovely things:

1) Getting organised from the week away - okay, i didn't like doing the actual tidying and unpacking, but i'm pleased its all done now!
2) Pilates - i needed it!!! i managed to put on 5 pounds just on our week away!!
3) The new Marks and Spencers advert

Oh that looks amazing - love the touch of setting up the childrens room according to age/sex etc - wonder what they'd come up with for my 2 teens? Actually they'd be happy with dinosaurs - seems they've never quite grown up ;)

The New Forest is lovely isn't it? My Dad lived in Christchurch (he died in 2009 :0( ) and Stepmum still does - it really is entwined with him in my mind.

It looks a lovely place to stay - when we were kids Mr G and I camped in Brockenhusrt and woke one morning to find a pony IN the tent with us!! Good job I'm horsey!!

What a lovely place you found there!!! I appreciate it so much when I go somewhere and the owners have added cute/fun extra touches (like leaving a few games/books around). :-)
