Wales and autumn breaks aren’t always words that go together but when we were invited to try one of Premier Cottage’s award-winning farmhouse accommodation we decided to pack a bag full of waterproof clothes and brave the notoriously wet and wild Welsh October weather….Posted on: November 6th in Our Trips, Travel, UK by Becky Padmore.

On the 27th September, LAN airlines flew us from London to Ecuador for the #HappyInEcuador trip with the South America travel experts, Metropolitan Touring. On the last three days of our eleven day journey we ticked off a destination that had been hovering at the top of our travel bucket for years – the Galapagos Islands….Posted on: October 21st in Our Trips, South America by Becky Padmore.
On the 19th August we took a Railbookers weekend city break to Angers, France, the historical capital of Anjou and gateway to the Châteaux-lined Loire Valley. It’s a loveable laid back city with a slight bohemian air and heaps of beautiful architecture to drool over. After a hassle-free train journey…Posted on: October 6th in Europe, Our Trips, Travel by Becky Padmore.
The race weekend was finally upon us – arriving at Silverstone early on the Friday morning I joined thousands of dedicated Formula 1 fans, flooding into the venue to watch the practice sessions ahead of the main race on Sunday…Posted on: September 2nd in Our Trips, Travel by Graham Padmore.
On the 19th August we took a Railbookers weekend city break in Angers, France, the historical capital of Anjou and gateway to the Châteaux-lined Loire Valley. It’s a hugely likeable, laid back place with a slightly quirky outlook and heaps of beautiful architecture to drool over. After a hassle-free train journey, our days were spent wandering around the cobbled medieval streets exploring important heritage sites….Posted on: August 22nd in Europe, Our Trips by Becky Padmore.
As I pulled out of the garage and accelerated along the Silverstone pit lane, I began to regret eating so much pasta for lunch. I was strapped into a Formula 1 car, and putting my foot down, I could feel the vibrations through the tyres. Turning into the first corner, my nerves gave way to a rush of excitement…Posted on: August 15th in Our Trips, Travel by Graham Padmore.
On the 5th August we flew to West Sweden, a pristinely beautiful place that seems to be having a ‘moment.’ With long summer days, over 8,000 islands to explore (stretching from Gothenburg all the way to the Norwegian border) and a plentiful supply of fresh sea air, Scandinavians have always loved holidaying here…Posted on: August 12th in Europe, Our Trips by Becky Padmore.
It was 10am on a Tuesday, and a man I’d only just met had given me his shorts. Luckily, the man in question was the aptly named Andrea Ferrari, and the shorts meant I didn’t have to spend the morning work out in my jeans. I was still recovering from the shock of finding myself in a gym when I was handed a red Ferrari Driver Academy t shirt, and pulling it on, I suddenly felt rather privileged…Posted on: July 29th in Our Trips, Travel by Graham Padmore.
We feel very lucky to live down the road from one of the most impressive Royal Palaces in England. Although it hasn’t inhabited by the British Royal Family since the 18th century, it was once Henry VIII’s favourite royal hangout and his intended bride Anne Boleyn apparently spent the equivalent of around 18 million pounds turning the residence into the palace of their dreams….Posted on: July 22nd in Our Trips, UK by Becky Padmore.
Once-in-a-lifetime opportunities don’t come along all that often (funnily enough), and having been offered the chance to fly to Italy and go behind the scenes at Ferrari, this was one that couldn’t be turned down…Posted on: July 17th in Our Trips, Travel by Graham Padmore.
