After a smooth and uneventful flight , we picked up our car at Heathrow and set off under cloudy skies for our cottage in Dorset. It is so nice to be back in the beautiful countryside of gently rolling green hills.
Our cottage is lovely and has everything we need. It is in a small village which has a farm shop, a post office, a church and a pub. A tiny “burn” runs along the edge of the road that passes through the centre of the village and several houses are built right up to the edge of this tiny stream, entered from the road by little bridges over the burn. Roses and wisteria climb up the front of many of the little cottages and both are blooming so it is very pretty. Our cottage is the second one in a terrace and the only one with a thatched roof.
On Sunday we walked up to our local pub, the Brewers Arms, for a Sunday roast. The roast pork was lovely ( Yorkshire pudding too ). Later we walked up through the fields towards the next village along a pathway lined with some white flowering wild flower. Can anyone enlighten me with its name?
More of our adventures when we have a better connection.
