My Week In A Nutshell

A little rest and relaxation was in need after a jammed packed few weeks, so I decided to take a couple of days for a quick weekend adventure with my lover.

I wanted countryside and somewhere far enough to feel as though I was away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney but close enough so I didn't have to travel for hours by car as we were only going for the night. That wasn’t too much to ask for...right? Sometimes, when you put out what your heart desires, you might just receive.

 We headed 2 hours down south to Milton Park Country House, a 20th century mansion hidden amongst beautiful landscape in the Southern Highlands east of Bowral. The estate is a luxurious grand mansion with 44 rooms, indoor heated pool, gym, tennis courts, spa house, fine dining restaurants and lounge areas warmed by open fire places.

 The air was clean, crisp and smelt like fresh grass and smokey wood. Morning walks and meditation amongst the estates beautiful gardens and ancient woodlands made switching off a breeze. Stepping inside to heat up by the fire places whilst kicking your feet up with a glass of red wine and a good book literately warmed my heart and soul.

Milton Park was a perfect getaway for switching off a busy brain and nourishing the mind and soul, something we all deserve every now and then.
