Like most people, Matt and I like to get away as often as we can. Not just abroad but in the UK too. We like unwinding in spas, spending the week taking Luna on mammoth walks, curling up in front log fires…  We’re fortunate enough to have a few mini-breaks under our belts now but one thing we hadn’t experienced was an Airbnb. Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service which enables people to rent out accommodation on a short-term basis or of course, to stay in these places.

About a year ago, Matt and I ventured to North Star Club (you can read the post here), a woodland retreat in Yorkshire. It was one of our favourite staycations of all time so we were delighted to be invited back to stay in one of their brand new suites. All cabins are buried amongst the trees and they feel truly private as each is about 25 meters from its neighbour. With no TVs, wi-fi and barely any signal, North Star Club makes for an incredibly secluded experience, just one of the reasons we fell in love with it.

A couple of weeks ago I told you all about the hotel we stayed at in Crete, Elounda Blu (you can read my full post here). This week I’m going to be showing you some of the things we got up to whilst there.

Last year, we were incredibly fortunate to go on several holidays, the common theme however, being that they were all very busy where we were on our feet exploring most of the time. I’m certainly not complaining by any means but this year, we decided that one long holiday where we could spend hours stretching out in the sun was exactly what we needed. For a change, we thought we would wait as long as possible to book to try and get a better price. I managed to wait until April (which is very good for a meticulous planner such as myself) when we booked 10 days in June to go to the beautiful Crete.

You may remember last year I fell completely in love with North Star Club (read here). After we left, as with all good places we tend to visit, it remained on my mind and when I was invited to North Star Club’s sister camp, Jollydays, I didn’t hesitate in jumping at the chance and a date was booked in for May.
