A lovely cabin in Udimore.
Last week I was browsing through the AirBnB website, and came across this newly added hut, only 1 hour and 20 minutes away from Brighton.
I got extremely excited, called Felix and asked if I could book it.
He was on board. And so yesterday, we drove there, and spent a night in this cosy place, together with the puggies.
When we reached the countryside, Maya got very happy right away. She might be 10 years old, but she has a lot of energy and loves to run around free.
The property was absolutely stunning, clean and with anything we could need.
Felix and I took this chance to relax and stay outside. Luckily, it was a sunny day, although the wind was even stronger than it usually is in Brighton. Still, we brought some games and run around with Maya and Edgar.
It was such a nice change, especially because living in the city we don’t get to fully turn off, and being immerse in nature was just what we needed.
Here is the view. And Maya blending in. She is so tiny she is shorter than the plants- haha.
And here is me, chilling in the hammock.
Dinnertime was fun as well. We bought some food to cook right before leaving, nothing much but just enough to get through the night. We had a stove and I managed to cook one thing at a time, which meant some of the food got cold by the time we ate it, but having it outdoor, whilst the sun was setting, was so nice and probably made it taste better!
After dinner, we just walked around a bit, taking in all that beauty.
And by 9pm, the pugs were asleep in the couch.
They had been running so much, they made themselves comfy. So cute.
Felix and I stayed up watching a k-drama till midnight, and then fell asleep. At 3 in the morning, it started to rain. At first it was super cosy, but eventually it got so intense we weren’t able to sleep.
To be fair, I had been wishing all day that it would rain during the night, because being used to travel every year on an RV with my parents, when I was younger, the one thing I have always missed about our trips was hearing the rain fall, hitting the top.
So now I got that experience back, and I’m glad about it. As soon as the rain passed, I fell deeply asleep.
I’m happy I got to spend a day in this adorable hut, and I’m hoping that in the future, the pugs, Felix and I will make more time to visit it again.
