A weekend away with friends

I've just come back from a weekend away in the Cotswolds and I can't tell you how good it's been for the soul.

After a pretty emotional week of stopping breastfeeding and colds and generally feeling a bit overwhelmed and run down a break was 100% appreciated. We were invited to Marsden Manor in the Cotswolds by Kate & Tom's and it was such a perfect venue and I'm really excited to share the pictures with you.

I also couldn't resist sharing a few outfits with you whilst I was in such beautiful surrounding of course ;) The top outfit is a two piece from Zara and the below is a dress from Anthropologie

Marsdon Manor sleeps ten couples or 20 friends (beds can be made as king size or twin) so its brilliant to have with a group of friends or a couples weekend away but also totally set up for families too. There is a play room for smaller children, a games room for older children (think pool table, ping pong ect) plus loads of books, dvd's and boardgames. It also has an amazing outdoor heated pool which was just perfect for an early morning swim!

Only an hour away from Bristol it really felt like the most tranquil secluded location. I wasn't sure what to expect from the interior of the manor  being that it it such an old building (some part of the house are 600 years old!). The owners however have managed to make the bedrooms modern and luxurious whilst keeping with the country feeling of the place. I can testify that the beds are so comfy and a good sleep was had by all which as most of us were mums was very much needed.

I loved that their was an Aga in the kitchen as it really brought back memories of the farm house my parents used to live in. It also had a 'normal' oven and hob for those not used to working Aga's (although they are really easy to use!). Diana the owner also had baked us a cake and left us essentials on our arrival like bread, tea, coffee, milk etc. We took it in turns to make meals and as we were a group of 90% veggies this worked so well.

As well a beautiful grounds and manor house they also had a tennis court! Whilst there were only 7 of us you can really feel that even at full occupancy you would never ben under anyones feet. The house also has two living rooms, a dining room and a eating space in the large kitchen. Pretty much all the bedrooms had their own bathroom also.

Thank you so much to Kate and Tom's for inviting me and my friends for a weekend away. If you are new to their site they have some beautiful properties that I'd definitely recommend checking out. We were guests at Marsdon Manor but all words, thoughts and pictures are my own.

I also made a little video of our time away if you fancy a watch!
