A WEEK IN SOMERSET + AN OOTD

Hi everyone! Sorry for being MIA for the last week - I spent it in Somerset playing at being an old lady by visiting National Trust properties, staying in a farmhouse and having cream teas for almost every meal. It definitely beat a wild girls' holiday in Magaluf, and I would definitely recommend it if you are elderly at heart (just call me Ethel from now on.). I thought I'd share with you a few of my favourite photos and memories from the week and recommend a few places in case you were thinking of visiting the area in future.

View from Glastonbury Tor (otherwise known as "the left breast of the daughter of Mother Earth"/"home of the fairy king".... yeah I'm lost too.) 

One of the many interesting shops in Glastonbury that caught my eye - I love the style that's unique to this place, even if it can be slightly disconcerting at times!

Chalk graffiti in Glasonbury - so cute!

Looking like we own the house at Longleat - if only!

Longleat House - try to get in in the morning so you can take an exclusive tour of the Lord Bath's private part of the house (and if you do, prepare to be disturbed - that man is weird.).

Lost in the maze at Longleat!


A collage of our day in Wells, one of the nicest cities I've been to in a long time! If you're going to Somerset I'd really recommend it (especially if you love Gothic architecture like I do!). We had an hour long tour of the cathedral and then spent the rest of the day in the Bishop's Palace (where you can dress up as a Bishop - the best bit by far!).

The bridge (featured in Pride and Prejudice !!!) and one of the Temples at Stourhead - the gardens here are absolutely amazing and I'd definitely recommend it, especially if you love Pride and Prejudice as the best scene of the whole film is filmed here (the proposal scene in the rain? I'm sure you know what I mean. I'll be quiet now.).

View from the grotto at Stourhead - this place was full of surprises!

Gothic windows at Stourhead - I'm obsessed with Gothic architecture and this place is full of it.

Looking slightly ill outside a gothic cottage at Stourhead!
