Our Little English Holiday... Part One

Saturday, August 31, 2013
Hi Everyone!

If you're a liker on my Facebook Page you will know that I posted a Video of Little Snippets of our Holiday to Exmoor!

But I have loads more to share with you! We stayed in Somerset within the Holnicote Estate in Exmoor. Its a beautiful part of the country, with purple heather and gorse covering huge rolling hills. Being near the coast and in Exmoor, the roads are pretty steep and we stayed in a cute box cottage in the middle of no where! The farm was stunning, but I wish my Punto was a Land Rover for the two weeks we were away! 

Here is a picture of the little cottage we stayed in! I'm sorry for the wonky picture but the cottage was also on a steep hill, and the garden went up and down around the house, so it was hard for me to get a good picture!

The cottage was lovely and old. Each bedroom had lovely ornate fireplaces and the floors were all creaky rustic wood- which made for interesting toilet trips in the night!

You can see from the staircase the gorgeous wood! Each room was on a different level- wearing socks was treacherous! 

In our room, the bed was dark green metal, and had old wooden chairs, tapestry cushions and patchwork throws. It was so cute and cosy.

The views from the house were beautiful. This was Mums Bedroom window! Opposite the cottage were cute piglets and the farm dogs Bean, Sherlock, Watson, Moriarty and Scaremonger (Jack Russell, Labrador, 2 Collies and Pomeranian!) who all kept watch over everything!

I'm a sucker for a good bathroom, and the cottage one was so cute. It was a little small, you could just about get out the bath and turn around, but the taps and finishes were lovely and classic. I've always wanted a free standing bath and a huge tap like the one above!

Well there was the house! I will write a post every couple days! I hope you enjoy reading them all!

Thanks for reading! Oh! And Happy Autumn!
