In the grounds…

In case you’re wondering,  this  photograph (as taken by one of our lovely guests in April) isn’t of  the interior of one of our barns.  Although it’s cosy enough to be, if a tad ‘distressed’…

Belle Grove 11This is the ‘Shepherd’s Hut’,  located in the grounds, that Nick knocked together last year from bits and pieces. Apart from storing cricket bat & balls,  croquet set (yes we’re making a croquet lawn – well, patch of grass) & astro binnoculars, it has been used as a bookworm’s retreat, for yoga sessions and simply ‘chilling’ with a glass of wine while watching the sun go down across the fields.

And as seen from the other end…

Belle Grove 10And while we’re at it, here’s a nice shot, taken by the same guest, of the swing seat that overlooks the top pond.
