Over the weekend I had a great time celebrating my birthday! The actual day was Friday, the 27th but for weeks I had September 27th to September 29th blocked off on my calendar as “surprise birthday trip” and it was not until Friday at 8pm I finally found where we were going. My boyfriend planned a great surprise trip and the location turned out to be Sandbanks in Dorset. Depending on the traffic, Sandbanks is a 2.5 hour drive from London and is an adorable little peninsula on the edge of both Poole Harbour and the English Channel.
We checked in to the Haven Hotel Sandbanks late Friday night and got ready for a busy weekend ahead. As the ferry, which usually connects Sandbanks to Studland, was out of commission we drove the long way around to Studland and Corfe Castle to kick off our Dorset weekend. We spent a very busy day exploring Corfe Castle and then driving down to the Durdle Door on the Jurassic Coast. Then it was off to The Cabin in Swanage for lunch and lastly further down the coast to take in the gorgeous views and some of the inhabitants (shheeeepppp).
