love the giver more than the gift

Birthdays happen once a year....its inevitable, the only thing that changes is our age. Yesterday I turned 25 and when Tim asked me what I wanted for my birthday I said that it would be nice if we could go away for the night and spend some time together. I had briefly mentioned that it would be lovely if we could stay in a log cabin but quickly had to knock that idea on the head as they don't tend to do 1 night stays. However luck was on Tim's side as he got a phone call from one he had enquired about a while back saying they had had a cancellation and they were happy to take a 1 night booking. I had no clue about this, all I knew is that we were going away to somewhere up North, he also had booked a night before hand in Leeds.

After a fun filled day and a lovely stay in a boutique hotel in Leeds we drove up to the mystery location in Middlesbrough, can you imagine my surprise when we drove out into the country and pulled up at this....

Our very own log cabin for the night complete with private hot tub on the veranda, I couldn't think of a more perfect location to spend my birthday. We got lots of yummy food in to eat and spent hours drinking prosecco in the tub followed by cake and then a spa treatment the next day after a delicious full cooked English breakfast in the Bistro. I would definitely recommend this beautiful place if you are looking for somewhere special or different to stay, it even comes complete with your own rubber duck to take home!!
 Boy did good.....he did more than good I am very lucky girl, I even got a smarties cake.
