Welcome to The Getaway Guide

In these pages, you’ll find article that cover everything from food and drink to home and garden, with plenty of travel as well. You’re sure to find something to interest and entertain you!

Take a look at what’s on offer, together with some of my favourite posts from each of the sections.

Travel the UK and Europe

Hi, I’m Sally Akins, the owner and editor of The Getaway Guide. I love to travel, and now that my sons are all grown up, I’m starting to scratch that travel itch again.

So you’ll find lots of reviews, travel guides and tips for visiting the UK and travelling around Europe, together with travel journals from some of my favourite trips.

If you’re looking for inspiration for your next trip, I’ve got that covered with destinations around the UK, across Europe and beyond.

And if you want a recommendation for the perfect hotel, I can help with that too. I’ve got reviews for plenty of places to stay from stately homes to cosy cottages, and even the occasional glamping experience!

Food and Drink

At home and looking for something to cook? Our Food & Drink Section includes a whole host of recipes from quick mid-week lunches to relaxed slow cook weekend dinners.

And if you’re in search of something sweet, then I have got some fab cakes, bakes and puddings for you to try out.

But if you would rather eat out, then my restaurant reviews will help you decide where to go. Here’s a taste of what you’ll find:

Home, Garden and more…

We cover all sorts of interesting topics in our At Home section, from the perfect seasonal bedroom makeover to tips for looking after your car and improving your garden.

And we love giving away prizes, so you’ll usually find at least one giveaway running each month.
