The Glories of England

June 2013

YuccaTaking advantage of the wonderful summer weather, I took clients on a whirl wind tour from London to Scotland and Norfolk.  We sped north to the Lake District to walk in Column painting 2 Little Langdale, where my family has a stunning cottage once owned by Beatrix Potter.  I used the opportunity to check up on areas I once knew well, see friends and stay in some glorious country pubs and hotels ranging from Arts & Crafts in the Borders to grand Yorkshire castles plus a seaside moment in Norfolk to see the pictures at Houghton. It was a useful and enjoyable reminder of the wonders of this country, its gardens and houses.
