Upper Refectory Cottages - Appelby Magna

Well, both Mam and I arrived at the cottage safely, the cottages are so quaint, in total there are 17 of us here, like minded crafting friends, is there a better way to spend a long weekend?
After dinner both Mam and I took a stroll to get some fresh air and take in some of the views, this is one of the fabulous views we have, I think there is something quite regal about a lonely tree against the sunset.


I found this old boy sitting by the fence looking a little worse for wear, poor old soul looks shattered, I expect he did the same walk that we had just done.



Up on the roof.....

I nearly broke into a song there! This is one of the views from the bedroom window, both Mam and myself were quite taken by the ornate corners on the roof top.

LOL!! I've got some of that roof as well - taken at 4:45am this morning, moon in sky and a slight ground mist. Hope it comes out as well as yours ...

I only live a few miles from there and I didn't even know that these cottages existed, lol. Will have to check them out next time I'm heading in that direction. Hope that you and your Mam enjoy your visit.
