A few of my favourite things... La Rosa, Campsite & Hotel, Whitby

This is the first installment of a series of posts I'm going to write which will introduce you to some of the many things in the that bring me great joy & make life worth living!

No.1 My all time favourite place(s) on the planet.... La Rosa. If you have met me before you will have probably heard of it because I do tend to talk about it a lot..

La Rosa Campsite (not just any old campsite, but a Campsite Extraordinaire) is in the North Yorkshire Moors and lies between the lovely villages Goathland (where I call 'Heartbeat-land', another thing I am very fond of...) and Egton. La Rosa Hotel is on Whitby sea front.

I'll begin with La Rosa Campsite....

You stay in vintage vans all furnished with quirky decorations in different themes

There is a 'Big Top Tent' a communal area with the kitchen and seating... more importantly a whole wardrobe of dressing up outfits! We had great fun in here.

Becky dressed as a banana!

Ohh la la

It's not far from the pub... it's this way!

An outside bath

Showers in the barn

Soil toilet in an old fortune teller's van

I felt very at home having an on site sweet shop! Perfect for late night sugar cravings!

Weeeeeeeeeee! I never want to leave!

La Rosa Hotel, Victorian Seaside fun! 

Apparently Lewis Carroll stayed here! 

My boyfriend has taken me here many times to celebrate my Birthday. We didn't go last year and my birthday felt incomplete (we stayed in a Travelodge in London, not quite the same somehow hehehe) so big hint Matthew, if it's good enough for Lewis...

Each room has a different theme. We always stay in the Sacre Coeur, think it's the most romantic....

You can just about make out the sea view and the abbey, it's breathtaking! 

We have this cup and saucer so I felt most at home with my cup of tea!

Lovely chequerboard tiles and bathtub

Picnic in bed for breakfast!

If you fancy paying a visit to La Rosa, take a look at website 
They're all lovely people & would love to have you to stay I'm sure!
