Roaming Around Ripley

IMG_2245 edit

Like most students, I'm home for Easter! On the way back from Leeds, I joined the family at a friend of the family's caravan for a weekend of relaxation. Although my phone signal was practically none existent & the beds in there are approximately half the size of a normal single, it was lovely to just chill out in the country. Feeling adventurous, I dragged my siblings on a walk on the Sunday. The weather was glorious & the oldies were out in full, sampling a taste of the 'world famous' Ripley ice cream & ambling through the fields. Although I've been to Ripley many times before, I'd never ventured far from the castle & shops but I'd definitely recommend going for a wander, the scenery is stunning!

How are you spending your Easter weekend?


  1. oh I love your pics...they are beautiful....

    Mele xo

  2. Beautiful shots!

    Ripley looks lovely!


  3. Looks like you've been enjoying the sun. All props to you for staying in a caravan. I think I'd find it too small now because I definitely did when I was younger so I'd hate to think what I'd be like now too. I'd probably fall out of the bed in the night or something painful like that :S
    The walk you went out looks gorgeous.
    Lovely photos :)

  4. @Falala Mele - Thanks lovely!

    @SweetVintageKisses - Thanks bb! It is a cute little village :)

    @Samantha Jane - I am in love with the sun rn! LOL I used to go proper caravanning with my grandparents when I was little & the space was teeny! This one's a static caravan though so there's 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen/living room/dining room so it's not unbearably small!

  5. I'm so jealous of your beautiful weather and pictures! It's been grey and dreary around my area lately :(

    I'm working a few hours here and there Easter weekend so I won't be having a big dinner or anything, but mostly I'll get to relax, can't wait.

  6. I love the picture of all the green trees with one red one standing out.
    I have 5 days off over Easter yaaay I'm going to do some charity shopping and hang out in the sun xx

  7. AWW i love these. looks like a really nice place! love all the greenery! although it's a pain not having phone signal and stuff it's strangely quite refreshing when it happens i think! xx

  8. These are beautiful photos! The little girl is so pretty! I miss wearing my hair in a braid like that. Ah, now I have nostalgia for my childhood. Enjoy the sun!

  9. Aw, it looks lovely! I stayed in a caravan recently for the first time in years and it was SUCH fun!

  10. That picture of the bridge and waterfall is GORGEOUS!


  11. Ripley looks gorgeous! I wish we had places like that here in Texas! It looks like you had a good time, and that makes me happy :) For Easter, I'm gonna eat some gumbo that I'm pretty excited about and hang out with my family.

  14. Those are lovely photos!
    I love the first one because it makes me nostalgic as parks like that are starting to disappear where I live. I also think that the fourth photo of the bridge is beautiful:)
