A week ago I had a spa weekend which I’d bought as a special treat for my other half’s birthday and this weekend I was on a Haven holiday mini break. This is a tale of two very different, but both brilliant, mini breaks.
I had originally intended to write about these holidays separately but I couldn’t help but see these two very different holidays as a brilliant representation of my life as a divorced parent. It’s a tale of two halves – both of which are beautiful and amazing.
So first to our adults only pamper break at Lea Marston hotel near Sutton Coldfield. Other than the frustration of finding a number of children sharing the swimming pool with us (I know how that sounds, but it was a pamper break!) the weekend involved great facilities, amazing food, lots of relaxation, adult conversation and romance.
Sadly, I was so relaxed that I didn’t take many pictures at all during the weekend, but here are a couple of the facilities:
Then last weekend I headed for a very different break – this time, with my little girl and my parents. A Haven caravan holiday by the sea at Doniford Bay holiday park in Somerset. We had predictably poor weather (since it was a bank holiday) but that didn’t stop us having a great time. Seaside views, a spacious and comfortable caravan, great kids entertainment and located in the middle of a great area of the country to investigate.
Unsurprisingly I did take lots of pictures of our seaside break so here are just a few of my favourites:

So there you have it – a tale of two halves. Two fabulously different, but still fabulous weekends.
NB – this is not a sponsored post, nor is it a detailed review of these holidays!
