Bloggers holiday | Sykes holiday cottage Arnside (Day 1)

So you may have happened to see a variation of tweets this weekend about my trip to Arnside for a bloggers holiday. It's fair to say I've been looking forward to this for a while and the weekend certainly didn't disappoint.  Friday along with my favourite blogging buddies (Hayley, Jess, Simone, Kel, Sharon and Katie) we all headed of to the stunning cottage Mountain View in Arnside thanks to Sykes Cottages. For what has been frankly a hilarious weekend. 

Walking into the cottage I was extremely impressed. The cottage was a lovely size with a large well light living room with a large bay window and window seat (what came in handy for some people watching), kitchen and breakfast dining area, dining room, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms and one en-suit. 

It was large and spacious and there was so many thoughtful details around the cottage. The kitchen was well equipped and even the fridge was stocked with a bottle of wine, milk, butter and orange juice on our arrival what really was a very welcoming touch. All the bedrooms were also equipped with a hair-dryer, bath towels and dressing gowns. 

After unpacking and everyone had arrived I put my cooking skills to the test and cooked a Mexican night...maybe with a lot of help, but still it was delicious. We was joined with the additional guest of Derek the piƱata and sipped a few too many beer-garitas. Everyone was then fairly tired (although everyone still managed a fair amount of cocktails) so it was then time to relax, watch Frozen and retreat to bed. Although after the night out what followed Saturday a relaxing early (I say early I mean 1am) evening was a very good idea.
