A little Treat

From June 2011
With Teenage Boy holidaying in France last week and me feeling all jittery about him being away from home for a week,Mr F. decided we should have a little treat. It certainly helped me stop worrying. We had just one night away in gorgeous B&B in Lacock. Above, you can see our very own private door with polished wooden stairs that led up to our cosy bedroom, set away from the main house. We even had our own little garden to enjoy the evening sunshine. We spent the morning in Bath, where I got chance to visit some of my favourite shops and spend some money I shouldn't have. But Lacock was the real treat. In fact, I've taken so many photographs, I'll have to blog the second day of our trip in a seperate post. As there are quite a few pictures, I won't bore you with many words.

This is the main building of our little getaway.

And the view from one of windows in our room.



From another of our windows you could see St Cyriac's church







We were also next door to house of James and Lily Potter. In fact it's where they were murdered by the evil Lord Voldemort.



Of course any visit to Lacock is not complete without a visit to Lacock Abbey, also used in the Harry Potter films

The Abbey gardens and grounds were very pretty too.

Such a pretty, peaceful village, although I was a little disappointed not to bump into Colin Firth, Greg Wise or Judi Dench...maybe next time. by the way, Teenage Boy arrived safely home yesterday, having had a brillant holiday with his friends. He brought this with him

What a gorgeous place to stay in, I dont think Lacock is all that far away from me and yet never have been! How bad is that. Might have to remedy that soon. It looks just gorgeous!

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous, looks stunning, and then lovely to have your teenage boy and his bag of dirty washing home safe and sound.

Tabiboo said...

That looks like such a beautiful place and roses round the door - it doesn't get any better then that.

Just perfect.

It all looks soooo idyllic and your pictures are gorgeous. Am looking for somewhere for an Autumn break and you've given me ideas!

Paula said...

We visited Lacock back in April and loved it, such a pretty little village. Also love that 1st photo you've shown, the door with the roses climbing up the wall, beautiful.

Louise said...

Thank you for you kind words on my latest post!

It sounds like you are experiencing similar work related problems, or someone you know. I'm so glad Dave has quit as I have hated his company for years for making him to do unpaid holiday and cheating him out of holidays and things like that. It makes me so angry!

I shall miss some of places near you, but finally having Dave here after all those years of travelling is going to be great!

We will be able to share lots of peak district adventures once he is settled here!

Goodness! What a splendid place to spend a few days :o)
Hi Tracey, thank you for visiting my blog. I've had a look through yours and it seem we have a lot in common! I love Leominster, and last visit we had lunch in one of the antique places you pictured!
Sorry that you're not able to add to 'Followers'...I've been having such problems with blogger, could I suggest you try un-checking the 'keep me signed in' box on Google sign in - it has worked for me.
Best wishes, and welcome!

Lovely photos of a lovely place. Have lots of fond memories of visits there. Had the pleasure of attending a Christening at the beautiful church, and our car nearly got stuck in the ford! M x

Wow that looks lovely for a place to stay. Can you send me the email address as we want to go somewhere nice and peaceful like that in the next few weeks.

That pile of clothes takes me back to my boys teenage years!!
