About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children.

What a lovely post and such beautiful memories for the future! Your photos were stunning, especially the ones from the top of the cliff... it has been pouring with rain here in NZ, and just coming into winter so extremely cold, but as I read your post it felt like summer! Beautiful!


What a great little holiday Lucy, it will build the best family memories. I have to say I'm a little jealous as I sit by the window on a wet day! You can't beat the English seaside for a great time! Hope you share many more with us.


Your post had me all excited and wishing we had a van too. I know the north east coast well, I'm glad Saltburn has had a revival, it looks splendid, and so pleased you had such fun. Look forward to seeing the places you discovered.

Looks blissful!


I live in Saltburn and I alove it very, very much, We relocated back from berkshire to the NE when the MiniMadds were born. You will see lots of pictures of the beach etc in my blog all time time. we spent a couple of days on the beach and at Whitby last week. The weather was exceptional


It's great to see you had a wonderful time by the coast. You can't beat the British seaside (especially when the sun shines. Your children will remember these days forever.
But, oh it does make me miss our caravan! But I'm so glad that you've discovered the delights.
Can't grumble really as I live permanently by the sea...and it's raining. Oh well welcome back! xx


Thankyou beautiful post and the photos are wonderful. I look forward to your next post.


Hi Lucy,
Saltburn is a lovely place. It is a place i know sooooo well, from my childhood too. I used to stay with an Auntie near Middlesbrough. I once went for a walk along the pier ( don`t think its there now !) with my Dad on a windy day. The pier swayed with the wind and i ran back to the beach with my Dad laughing behind me! Memories!!
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxx


oh it's beautiful!!!!


Saltburn reminds me of childhood holidays and daytrips. Ifyou like it there you should try Robinhoods bay or staithes reall smugglers coves and pretty views. Really enjoying granny striping with you.


Oh Lucy
What a muppet i am just seen the pier again on your photos lol! Well don`t go on it if it`s windy lol!
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxxx

Saltburn looks like a charming place to visit. I hope their tourist office is rewarding you for doing such a good promotion of the resort! Glad you had such a lovely holiday.



thanks so much for sharing these lovely photo's and your much loved (by us) conversation.



Aahhhhhhh, I wish I was there too!
Everything you tell and show us is sooooo breathtaking wonderful!


I just love that pic of the buttercups in the jam jar. Fabulous!

Oh, you do make me hanker after a caravan. My husband wouldn't hear of it though. He's a tent man and thinks caravans are for wimps. Does your Connievan have all the necessary facilities? I do like plumbing :o)

Thank you Lucy, What a wonderful array of photos....I will feel I've been there by the end. Which is wonderful cos I don't think I will ever get to that marvelous piece of heaven!! Great times are happening for your family and you still crochet, that's truly awesome. My Best to you all, Robbie


Lucy, this sounds a magical holiday and you have made it all seem as though we are with you too. Thankyou too for sharing, your pictures are gorgeous! Aubrey


I get the teeny tiny impression from your post that you had a great time! he he! Well, thankyou for the beautiful photos, as it allowed us to be there and have a little break away too! There is nothing lovelier than a bit of countryside, a bit of beach and sea and a bit of alfresco dining! Ooooh I am going into a dream state now...nothing will get done in my house for a few hours at least today! ha ha! Have a lovely rest of a day! xxx


Your holiday looks fantastic, relaxed and the pictures will definitely cherish this golden family memories. Thanks for sharing a bit of the countryside with us. It looks superb. We hope to do some camping this summer, so hopefully the weather will improve! Have a lovely week. Cx


Thank you so much!! I feel like I've been on holidays myself after reading that post :)


What a lovely time you have had, looks like a very good place to stay.


Oh, My!! I find myself longing for a Connievan, too! What an amazing vacation. Thanks for sharing!


Lucy ~ what a very lovely post! It's looks and sounds like you all had a wonderful time ~ lots of lovely memories too! :O) xx


Thanks for sharing! So happy for you and your children will have those memories to take with them forever. Camping throughout my childhood are the happiest memories I have as an adult and so thankful my parents took the time to take us!

Living al fresco...now that's my kind of living.

I've heard of Saltburn on Sea in Freya North's last book. A bit of a chic flick - my brain can't cope with much else at the moment! - but the way she describes it is absolutely captivating and from your pictures I can see why.

Alas though we have never made it that far North.....yet.

This family memory making is wonderful 'breath it in' verrrry good stuff.

take care,

Nina xxxxxx
