The lockdown of 2020 certainly makes you appreciate what’s on your doorstep.
High Penn Marsh
in the beginning of March 2020 we weren’t allowed to get in our cars to exercise meaning Connie’s walks were restricted to anywhere we could get to from home. There’s a track at then back of the estate where we live and for years we’ve walked to a certain point, turned around and walked back. Little did we realise that if we carried on another 5 minutes we’d find this beautiful lake!
Long time Instagram followers will know that our usual dog walk of choice is ‘the Gallops’. A vast open space that allows Connie to run free for a good 45 minutes depending on the loop we take. We’ve got lots of happy memories up here with Roxy. It’s my go to place to walk Connie during the day with work as there’s no phone signal and I can completely relax for an hour.
We’re incredibly fortunate to have Lacock about 15 minutes from our house. Famous for being the location for many films including Harry Potter, Downton Abbey and Pride & Prejudice. We tend not to visit in the summer months as it gets crazy busy with tourists but spring and autumn are just as pretty.
People travel for miles to visit Bath…we’re a 30 minute car journey away. We huge fans of all the independent shops, cafes and restaurants dotted around the city and visit as often as we can. (Plenty of reviews can be found here).The Christmas Markets are well loved, again by tourists, but we try and go once a year to get some festive spirit!
Where is home for you?!
