Crisp Air, Red Wine, Roaring Fireplaces ~ Cliveden House is Like a Big Hug

As soon as the car tyres crunched into the driveway gravel leading up to to the grounds of Cliveden House, I felt butterflies in my tummy!  I knew I was in for something truly special and I wasn’t wrong. Cliveden House is set in the beautiful English countryside in Berkshire and is surrounded by 376 acres of stunning National Trust listed gardens.  The surroundings of Cliveden House are like something from a fairytale.  The views over the River Thames and onsite parklands are incredible.  It’s no wonder this is one of the finest luxury hotels in the UK.

Magical Mustique Island

Breathtaking

The first moment I stepped onto this beautiful island of pure white sand and turquoise waters, I knew that out of the 20 or so islands I’ve visited so far in my lifetime, this one was going to be a tough one to beat.

Mustique is a private paradise frequented by many celebrities and royalty alike (Wills and Kate apparently stayed in our villa and Beyonce and Jay Z were on the island just a week before we arrived).  One of the pull factors for celebrities and royalty is the privacy that this island offers.  No paparazzi allowed and to in order for any pap get a snap they would need to get a boat and take pics from afar!

Mustique is a tiny private island covering only just 5.7km and is located in St Vincent and the Grenadines.  It takes approximately 25mins to drive around the entire island so this is not a place for major explorers or those that bore easily!  I flew from London to St Vincent and then took a tiny (rather bumpy) plane to Mustique.  On the way home I transferred in barbados.
