Jesmond Dene House Review - Dinner, Bed and Breakfast

I recently had the pleasure of visiting boutique hotel Jesmond Dene House for an overnight stay, dinner and breakfast and I would highly recommend a visit to anyone looking for a relaxing night away or high quality dining experience.

Radio silence – But for good reason!

Radio silence - But for good reason!

I can’t believe that it’s the end of March and this is the first post I’m writing of 2016. It’s been a hectic few months for me and time seems to have just disappeared. That said, I am now planning to get back into full swing of blogging again and have been busy lining up some exciting new posts. So, why the radio silence!? In addition to being very busy with work, buying a new home in Spain and making…
