Hi, I’m Ali, welcome to The Happy Home Diaries

I started this site because I want to share what I love about living in the UK.

Whether you want to staycation here, are looking for a day out, or you are travelling from overseas – there is a wealth of information to help you.

Come along and explore with me!

More About Me

I live in Berkshire, but I long to live by the sea! 🌊

Here at home in the UK is my happy place . I love visiting historic houses and gardens 🌷, staycationing around the UK πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ and taking a city break or two .

If you don’t find me at my computer writing, I’ll be out walking for miles, with my nose in a book πŸ“š , or catching up on the latest TV or movie πŸ“Ί.

I love all animals (used to have 2 house rabbits πŸ‡ and hope to have a dog one day soon πŸ•), like a cheeky glass of wine 🍷, and am addicted to Strictly πŸ’ƒ every year.

I hope you enjoy your time here at The Happy Home Diaries. If you have any questions, you can contact me here.

Plus, if you want more ideas for travel around the UK, join us in my free Facebook group here.

Happy travelling!
