At the beginning of August we had a little working photography holiday in Gloucester. During our stay we did several photo shoots for a beautiful apartment in the center of Gloucester and the cleaning company that manage it. The apartment is in a new development right in the middle of the city and only 5 minutes from the recently refurbished, historic docks. It’s a fantastic location and we were both very surprised at how quiet and peaceful it was (an important consideration for us country folk!).

We arrived to find lovely welcome hamper with treats for breakfast, organic tea and coffee and fresh local milk so we were able to have a cup of tea straight away (essential for creative percolating) !  The apartment was beautifully decorated and there where lots of thoughtful touches like post it notes, pencils and leaflets for local attractions. We were particularly pleased to find the whole place really well provisioned with eco products such as hand wash and shampoo which we thought was a very nice touch.

If your in the area we can definitely recommend this apartment in Gloucester. It’s perfect for a mini city break.




During our down time we had a little wander around the amazing docks which have been regenerated over the last few years.  We were stunned at how well the old warehouses sat together with the new buildings, traditional working docks nestled in next to modern apartments, museums, shopping center and restaurants. It was a chance for us do a little city, landscape photography with our new camera which we thoroughly enjoyed.
