Home from a wonderful two days in London! We had such a fantastic time, but the pics are on Mr D’s camera, which he has gone off with so I thought I’d show you some other pics!
Following on from My First Holiday Snaps Post, here’s some pictures of the Cottage & village we stayed in.
Here is Chapel Stile. If you can see the church, our cottage was right next door.
You can just see the church on the left behind the cottages here, and the big hill behind was one we went over to find Grasmere. Where there was My New Favourite Tea Shop.
The lounge area. How cosy was that fire after a long day walking.
We always have a Open fire or wood burner in the cottage when we go away, it’s one of the Must Haves.
This is the dining area off the kitchen. I loved that window seat, I sat on it and watched the walkers setting off for the day, or stood in the street looking puzzled over their maps!
That sign says No Parking. Lilly Landy thinks she can park anywhere. We were asked (politely) by the vicar to move her on the Monday for a wedding that was taking place in the church. We saw no sign of the wedding. Do vicars tell little white lies??
The view from the kitchen out to the front garden and the nice little bench, which didn't get much sitting on due to wetness!
As the cottage is on a hill there were some steps leading up to a nice little sitting out area, and what a lovely view we had from there!
Mr D and I have been together for 22 yrs and we have only ever been abroad together once, when we went to NYC for our 10th wedding anniversary. With places like Chapel Stile at our fingertips, can you blame us!?
Do you go abroad for your holidays or do you like to explore your own country?
I can’t wait for the next holiday!
