Ten friends and I visited fforest during the early Summer of 2015. We had just finished our English degrees in Bristol, and had decided to go away for a sunny holiday to wash the library and the essays out of our hair...

Somehow, May blessed us with blissful weather: we swam in the sea (admittedly still very cold), walked along the coast and drank a great deal of wine from boxes. We were all pretty glum on the last day: we'd spent three years living in each others pockets and sometimes going to lectures and even less frequently reading the assigned books, and returning to Bristol meant graduation and then Real Life. fforest was our final stop before the journey home, and provided the perfect oasis to chatter over the happy memories we'd just made, and perhaps even get a little excited about what lies ahead. We speak so often about taking a group holiday and coming back to visit, if only Real Life would stop getting in the way. We'll make it back eventually, and I hope that it is as sunny and lovely as it was in 2015!
