New Forest Pony

One of my favourite animals are the New Forest Ponies… I just love watching them as they roam around the New Forest…. they are so peaceful to watch and friendly.  As we sat by Hatchet Pond this pony just wandered into the pond to have a drink.

Mottisfont

We are members of the National Trust and have visited many places within the South East of England, but one of our favourite places that we visited, which was further afield, was Mottisfont, in Hampshire.  The house, the grounds and the gardens are breathtaking… and there is nothing like walking along the River Test that …

Sunset serenade

For the past couple of days I have been going through our photographs that we took when we visited the New Forest back in July 2014, and one of my treasured memories of that visit, was us sitting on the hillside watching a golden sunset. It was warm, it was cosy and by God did …

The above picture was taken within the walled …

Buckler’s Hard

Within Buckler’s Hard is the Museum which has the history of Buckler’s Hard along with waxworks of how life was before, in the days …

Ancient trees, bubbling brooks and rolling lawns frame this lovely old house. Crafted from a medieval priory, it is full of …
