I have been away ( I know I can hear you all saying what again!!) yes we went somewhere very warm, with lovely blue skies, beautiful beaches warm seas, lovely food. Have you guessed where - The Garden of England Kent and weren't we lucky with the weather. We visited the lovely Pippa at The Tower House in Tenterden, a beautiful b & b which I couldn't recommend more, I have wrote about it before I think last September 2010.
We visited Ellen Terrys house at Smallhythe which is near Tenterden very interesting the house is so pretty and really worth a visit.
Spent time on Winchelsea beach
The Sugar Cube House!
along the front these interesting houses border the beach, you might recognise one as it was featured on Grand Designs, and is known as the Sugar Cube house for obvious reasons. Next to it is a Huff House,
and further along a very modern house with bright furniture on the balconies.
Now I appreciate the architecture and the modern concept but it really isn't for me.
Saturday saw us off on the Steam Train from Tenterden to Bodiam
(which I think is the one used in Downton Abbey) and then enjoyed the Folk Festival in Tenterden in the afternoon.
It seems that this is the last of our summer, but what a lovely way to end it - the fires are lit
I am busy again with the sewing machine with lots of ideas going around my head. Catalogues and brochures are arriving on the doormat and evenings spent making wish lists!! I do have my eye on these, and my hand is hovering over the add to basket!
Off to Shepton tomorrow for the Flea market so will let you know if I buy anything.
