Lifestyle | Kilworth House Review

So 2 weeks ago, me and the boy were celebrating five whole years together. Yup! It feels like a really long time and no time at all, in case you were wondering, which I know is totally unhelpful. We had a really horrific time last year (I wrote a post on it a while back) so it felt pretty special that we even made it to five years. So we congratulated ourselves with a trip to Kilworth House Hotel and threw in some food, a couple of massages and completely chilled out. It was totally, utterly blissful.

We started off to Market Harborough (which is now my second home after moving jobs) with a trip to the Garage Bakehouse. It is my top tip for lunch, the kind of lunch where you skipped breakfast but need to get running somewhere else... we picked up a couple of cheese & chilli jam toasties (to die for) and skipped off to Starbucks (there's nowhere to sit at Garage Bakehouse, and yeah I know Starbucks, sorry hipsters) to have a coffee and get cracking.

Oh my lord they are so good. I have had three in a month. Pretty sure that's around 10,000 calories. Pretty sure I don't care.

After that, we went off to Kilworth for a good walk around the grounds in the snow - which are absolutely beautiful - chilled out in our PJs with a film for most of the afternoon then hauled ourselves up for a great big anniversary dinner in the evening.

We had dinner and breakfast in the Orangery, which is a different kind of perfect altogether. You can see why a lot of weddings take place there - lots of stained glass, natural light and a magical atmosphere... back to the food! We went local with duck and venison, which were both perfect, and rounded it off with some ridiculously gorgeous desserts. After a long winters nap (well, it was snowing) we started the morning how every morning should begin - eggs benedict and loose leaf tea/freshly ground coffee. Then we read the Sunday papers like old people and had a massage. Aw, yeah.

Do I recommend it? Of course I do. It was incredible. The service was brilliant, the food sublime and I loved the attention to detail - not to mention Clarins toiletries everywhere. We can't wait to go back.
