A Week in Windwhistle Cottage


WINDWHISTLE COTTAGE

I DO LIKE A LOO WITH A VIEW - NOTE THATCH FRINGE

VIEW FROM THE GARDEN

JUST A COCK STRIDE FROM THE BEAUTIFUL CHURCH

AND THE EXCELLENT OLD INN WITH REAL HOME COOKING

WALKING ROUND THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE VILLAGE

Lovely Pat - particularly like the picture through to the church.

Rog said...

What a shame they don't allow pets!

(They allowed Pats and that's only one letter out)

so you could sit on the loo and watch the birds, nice

Pat said...

Rog: yes it draws you in.
I didn't realise they didn't allow pets. Hope the doggies don't take it personally.

LOM: blissful:)

Another one of the most beautiful places you have visited for your holidays.
What is the name of village so I can look it up on the map. I always like to see where you have been.

cheers, parsnip

This looks like a fantasy English Village created by MGM in they're heyday....What a beautiful place, my dear Pat. It sounds like you had a very special time there, too!

I swear, you make me want to visit England, cold weather and all, Pat.

Haha, if I had a loo with a view like that, I'd set up office in there!

Pat said...

Parsnip: it used to be so much easier to do the words and pictures together. I'm never sure which order they are read. Note the network of tiny lanes:)

Naomi: true - apart from 'rush hour'and the A35.

GG: the trouble with a beautiful view - not a lot of work gets done so I always face a wall.

Beautiful cottage with a very evocative name.

Pat said...

Rashbre: we saw the name 2 or 3 times including a very good pub on the Cahrd Crewkerne road.

Lovely lot of photos... I will be back in the UK next May, and I can not wait!! A conference in Dublin, then over the pond to GB and into Liverpool...

Thanks for sharing!

GYPSYWOMAN said...

what incredibly beautiful photos you always take pat - you have us right there with you - but yearning to "really" be there in all that picturesque beauty! thanks so much for letting us all tag along on your wonderful little jaunts!

Pat said...

Bernie: now Liverpool I hardly know at all although I trained near Manchester.

Gypsy: you are always welcome:)

About Last Weekend said...

This place is straight out of an Enid Blyton book (which I loved when I was a kid but are considered very un PC now). Must use "cock stride" in conversation soonest. You love loos with a view - me-est too!

LL Cool Joe said...

Oh yeah a view from the loo is always nice. :D The place looks beautiful and home cooked food is always a bonus!

Pat said...

ALW: I'm afraid I'm not very PC but good views are always a joy.
The States are going to be awash with cockstrides:)

Joey: agreed. Just this evening MTL was spooning his home cooked chicken casserole into containers for the freezer. Sadly I won't be eating them as I never know what he has put in them - calorie wise.
