The magnificent building home to the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel is one of my favourites in the capital. I’d love to lay my head in one of the glorious rooms in the gothic revival edifice. Unfortunately I’m always told to jog on by Mr S, due to the close proximity to my own bed.

Rocco Forte Verdura Golf and Spa

With temperatures dropping, darker nights and scarf season upon us, I’m huddled up with my hot water bottle under a cosy blanket and find myself reminiscing about holidays of yore. For this post I’ve decided to rewind to Easter 2015, to the Mediterranean island of Sicily. View Post
