Magical mystery tour – Uncovered

After a stressful and very emotional few weeks, a weekend away with hubby, without the children was very much needed.
We set off on Friday afternoon, and I didn’t have a clue where he was taking us, it soon become apparent that we were headed down to the New forest, which is a special place for us, because it was where we spent our first ever weekend away together back in the courtship days :D
The New forest is magical, not only is scenery beautiful, you have wild ponies roaming around and the whole place is rooted with so much history.

On Friday night we stayed at the Rhinefield House Hotel, which is situated deep into the New forest  and literally took my breath away as we pulled up into the drive, such a beautiful building and a building with such dark history.
On Saturday we headed over to Beaulieu, on the way through the village there was some wild ponies grazing on the side of the road, so hubby slowed down so I could take some pictures, the pony then decided to walk around the car and stick his head in hubbies window for a stroke..was a magical moment.
Once in Beaulieu we visited the motor museum, where I got to see Ron Weasleys dads car from Harry Potter, also Mr beans and The Trotters three wheeler lol and the James bond collection of original vehicles  “Bond in motion, 50 vehicles 50 years” which hubby really enjoyed :D
We also had a look in Beaulieu Abbey and Palace house and walked the grounds before heading off and find a nice pub to grab some lunch.












 Saturday night we stayed in a cute cottage hotel in Lyndhurst, {Alice Liddell, the inspiration for Alice in Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, is buried there in the village} and spent most of Sunday in bed {sleeping!!} before heading back home and collecting the children.
All in all, it was a fantastic weekend and one I will never forget :D
