Sleeping in a castle in Amberley 

 Hey there,

A few weeks ago, I went on a weekend getaway to West Sussex. It’s just an hour and a half away from London by train so I arrived there on Friday evening and went back to London on Sunday afternoon.

The place where I stayed, Amberley Castle, was just magical, and when I first arrived there I felt the days ahead were going to be magical too in a way. And sure it was.

All the food I had there was delicious and the service was excellent. Everyone was very kind and gave me some recommendations of where to go for a hike or for a good restaurant in town.

On Saturday morning I went on a long hike, which was beautiful. Luckily the weather was nice and the sun was shining. I always get that happiness boost when I go on a hike. Give me a pair of sneakers, some fresh air and green surroundings and I’ll be at my best mood.

In the afternoon, I sat in the terrace and read while drinking some tea – I’m such a British countrysider already! It was a bit chilly when the sun was gone but the sunset was just amazing. And having a flock of birds dancing and singing in front of me was just the perfect touch for such a breath-taking view.

So I guess now I can say I’ve slept in a castle, can you?


Hace unas semanas, me fue de escapada a West Sussex, situado al sur de Inglaterra. Está a una hora y pico en tren del centro de Londres, así que llegué allí el viernes por la tarde después del trabajo y regresé el domingo por la tarde.

Me hospedé en Amberley Castle, simplemente maravilloso. Es un castillo de amplio terreno que parece sacado de un cuento de hadas. Aquello ya auguraba un gran fin de semana.

La comida del sitio – tenía el desayuno incluido y cené ahí una noche – fue exquisita. Todo el personal fue súper amable y me recomendaron sitios para ir de senderismo y cenar en algún restaurante del centro del pueblo.

El sábado por la mañana me pegué un buen paseo de 15km y no me pude sentir mejor. Respirar aire fresco mientras el sol te da en la cara para mi es maravilloso, especialmente en Inglaterra, donde también es poco habitual!

Por la tarde estuve un buen rato sentada en la terraza leyendo un libro. Cuando empezó a ponerse el sol, ya se notaba el frío pero aquella vista era espectacular, así que me quedé ahí un rato embobada, mirando los colores tan mágicos del cielo y viendo cómo revoloteaban los pajarillos.

Espero que disfrutéis de las fotos y que os apuntéis este lugar tan especial, si estáis planeando una escapa a Inglaterra.
