Minimoon.....coastal vintage getaways!

Monday, 16 July 2012


I have been looking recently at ideas for our mini moon, for our honeymoon we are hoping to go to America for a couple of weeks and see San Fransico and lots of other places, but this won't be happening for a good couple of months after our wedding. So as the new craze seems to be mini moons I have been looking at different ideas. I love the seaside and want to spend some where by the coast! and  love vintage, so would like to  stay somewhere a bit different. One place I have known about for a couple of years now is Vintage Vacations on the Isle of Wight, they have a range of different accommodation including some stunning Air stream caravans. But the one accommodation which caught my eye was The Shack, a stunning shack by the beach, here are a few images

Another option is to stay a little bit closer to home to one of my favourite places in Whitby, La Rosa. When ever we are in Whitby we always make a trip to their tearooms but we have never stayed at the B&B. If you are ever in Whitby pop into La Rosa for some tea and cake the surroundings alone are great!
La Rosa also run a camp-site situated between Goathland and Egton where you can stay in vintage and classic caravans, 'Roma's full of etched glass' a converted truck with a wood burner or a Tipi! and hang the night away in a big top circus with an open pit fire. Recently they've refurbished their onsite barn and opened Swallow Barn,. the barn comes complete with wood burner and a roll top bath to create the perfect romantic setting!

If we don't go to the barn I think the camp-site is a great alternative for a hen do.

Another place I came across to stay is in Deal Kent, I couldn't find a website for this property but bookings can been taken through Trip advisor. This a lovely fisherman's cottage just a stones throw away from the beach, Deal itself looks a lovely place to stay. 

So if you are looking for a coastal holiday with a little bit of a vintage twist check these places out!
