A hour and half train ride from London, then a quick hop, skip and a jump from the train station, and you're there. Careys Manor is a 19th century hunting lodge in the middle of the New Forest. With its cosy sofas, log fires and quintessentially English gardens it's got all the ingredients for a perfect country weekend away from it all.
If you are in the middle of divorce, you can get pretty low. Let's face it, the whole divorce process is exhausting, there is so much new info to take on board, with advice from your lawyer, financial advisor, friends and colleagues.

I'm the sort of person who has always done even moderation in extremes. Last month, on a trip to a&e (sprain) I was asked if I was an athlete. Apparently my resting pulse rate is 47. Im a bit wary of sounding like Samantha brick here, but being a long established dog walker means I am super busy, very fit and always running and walking.
