Home again .... leaving all this beauty behind

Home since a few days from a wonderful holiday !
And already busy with work , three birthdays in two weeks and at the same time building a porch in our garden.
So just a quick post for now to share the beautiful cottage (at our first location) in the Cotswolds with you.

In the directions to the cottage was mentioned that we had to follow a narrow road towards the church and this was our first (left) view approaching our accommodation for the first week , St John the Baptist's Church ....

With on the right our stay , The Old Rectory Retreats ....

And the accompanying cottage we rented and spend a fabulous week , The Grooms House ....

With a lovely private garden around it including this beautiful wisteria ....

I wanted an escape to the country and looking at our view I think we did well ....

The cottage was so very charming and I really fell in love with the windows ....

And the neighbours ....

In my previous post I mentioned I wanted to look for bluebells in the Cotswolds and see what I found , isn't this just like a fairy tale forest ....

From this beautiful setting we explored the rest of the lovely Cotswolds of which I would like to tell you more about in a next post , which I hope you will join me again.

Until then .... happy Monday, happy new week!

  2. Dear Anita,
    Isn't it beautiful in the Cotswolds? Our friends have a cottage in The Cotswolds, near Chipping Campden, so, I know just how beautiful it is there as we stay there quite a lot. It sounds as if you had a wonderful time.
    …. and, many thanks for your lovely comment over at my blog today. XXXX
