Come and take a little walk with me!

As you all know, I live in the UK, in the South West of the Country in a County called Wiltshire.  I am not far from the historical Roman City of Bath.

My little village is called Holt and I thought it would be nice for you to be able to see what I see when I walk outside my back door.

I am very, very, lucky!

This is the brook at the end of my Garden Path!
The Little Bridge going over the brook!

Turn Left and this is the path....

...that takes you to the village pond!

under the Willow Tree is the Glove Factory Studios - I would dearly love to have one of these studios!!

turn around and this is the back of our house - the one at the end on the right!

Carry on walking back down the path and this is the road through the village.  The Old Manse is opposite our house and the church is just a little further up.

If you cross the road you come to Withy Walk - isn't it pretty!

At the entrance to Withy Walk is this amazing house called The Courts.  It has stunning gardens which are open to the public and it is owned by the National Trust.

The Courts

Turn around and this is the village hall, you can see the Willow Tree at the end of the road where we walked earlier!

Look to your left and there is our house, right at the end with the Red Front Door!

It was such a beautiful day - we had ice creams in the park!

Thank you for walking a little with me - it is always great to share things with a friend!

Hope your week is full of sunshine too!

Pippa, that looks stunning. I LOVE the old building with the garden. It reminds me very much of a place we visited in Yorkshire ages ago (can't remember the name now.. obviously).
Thanks for taking us walkies. Love it!
Will need to do a similar thing here..

Feeling homesick...miss England a lot and can't wait till I'm over in June. Lovely photos of a very lovely part of the country.

funny to think I have driven past your house several times before I knew you. My friends who used to live in Holt have moved to Bradford On Avon now. Glad to see you have been enjoying the lovely weather!
