Revealed: The Top 10 Strangest Sleeping Spots

To celebrate the end of this year’s National Bed Month, the innovative mattress brand, Octaspring, has commissioned a survey polling 3,000 UK residents, looking into the strangest and most wacky places people have slept.

Whilst many people know the importance of getting a good night’s sleep, over a third of those surveyed (35%) admit to sleeping in a strange and uncomfortable place – perhaps reinforcing the fact that the majority of the UK (51%), struggle to get a good night’s sleep, thus, leaving the British notorious as a ‘nation of insomniacs’!*

Restaurant Review Bristol : Flinty Red is a dinky, informal bistro and wine bar, co-owned by the local wine merchants

by on February 2, 2013

Zoe Williams writes ... Flinty Red is a dinky, informal bistro and wine bar, co-owned by the local wine merchants, whose exposed brickwork and square, functional furniture give very few clues about how the food might come out.

It could be Café Rouge or Raymond Blanc. I wasn't expecting what I got.

TheMarketingblog Restaurant Reviews : The Foxhunter, Abergavenny: Bristol Foodie on tour.

Gemma writes .. This review isn’t strictly Bristol – but it’s less than an hour away and was the setting to a perfect anniversary weekend. More importantly, somewhere this good, this close by, deserves to be shared with you all!

Tucked away in a tiny hamlet called Nantyderry just between Abergavenny and Usk (45-50 minute drive from Bristol, map here). The Foxhunter is a beautiful gastro-pub with self catering accommodation. Their website doesn’t do it justice but hopefully my review will!

We arrived on Friday evening and were greeted by owners Matt and Lisa Tebbutt who showed us to our home for the weekend – a beautiful holiday cottage a few doors down from the pub. I’m not going to wax lyrical about the accommodation, after all this is a blog about food not travel, but it was wonderful. (Trip advisor review here). [more…]
