Celebrating Summer at The Cart & Horses, Kings Worthy

(This is a paid partnership with The Cart & Horses - see disclaimer)

A few weeks ago, The Cart and Horses in Kings Worthy opened their doors after an extensive renovation. The 18th-century building has been lovingly restored bringing to life the best of British pub dining in an oh so beautiful Grade II listed building.

From stunning new interiors beside original exposed brickwork to the beautifully landscaped garden perfect for bees, the pub will be the place to be this summer and beyond. With parts of the building dating back to 1760, the design has been sympathetic to its history by building on its character with warm lighting, soft furnishings in rich colours, beautiful wallpapers and art from local artists in Hampshire such as Green Magpie.

I recently spent a wonderful evening at The Cart & Horses recently for a summer garden party and couldn't wait to share all about it.

Postcards from Woodstock & 3 Places you must visit

During a recent stay in Oxfordshire, we drove through the pretty little market town of Woodstock and vowed to stop over on the way back to Southampton. Situated on the eastern edge of the Cotswolds, the historic town of Woodstock and home to the glorious Blenheim Palace is absolutely worth the visit and has a 900-year record of hospitality.

The town has gorgeous Georgian facades, walls of Cotswold stone and beautifully curated gardens making it a total dream to wander around. We spent just over an hour there with our main objective being to find a really great coffee shop and some lunch to enjoy on our way home and boy did we score big on the foodie front. 

There were three spots in particular we really enjoyed, so much so, we're itching to book a little B&B and visit again for the weekend. Hopefully next time we'll be able to visit Blenheim Palace too.

(This is a paid partnership with Princess Cruises - see disclaimer)

When it comes to holidays with children, so many say it's just like being at home but with better weather and to be quite honest, the thought of battling the airport with children is my worst nightmare. Cruising however, especially being from Southampton feels like a doddle and so I recently spent a day on Princess Cruises' Sky Princess with my son to get a taste of what exactly is on offer for children. 

Spoiler... SO much plus there's no baggage limit which in itself is a massive pull.

So here are five reasons why you should absolutely cruise with children and whilst we haven't done it yet, this is why we will be...
