Country Kitchens

This is a picture of the kitchen that I hope will be mine. I have been wanting and looking for a while, for a house that has country charm, and I think I have found it. Dreaming of how I would renovate/decorate.Crown moulding makes such a difference

Part 3: Churches Abbey's Cathedral's

Cleeve Abby was my favorite church site to visit. 
It was founded in the late twelfth century,although the church it self was destroyed in 1536, the cloister is very much intact.I wonder... if Anne of Cleeves(one of King Henry the 8th's wives)has anything to do with this Abbey or the area???

Part 2 Castle's on my trip to Wales

Castle Conwy
http://wwwcastlewales.com/conwy.html Family in front of Conwy Castle

Beautiful Medieval art work for sale in the gift shop.

After visiting our first castle,we stopped in a lovely cafe for clotted cream and scones,and steeped tea...My sister and her hubby.

This castle was the closest one to our cottage,I cant remember what its called...its in ruins.
That's me hopping the stone wall,the castle was blocked off... he he
It was so chilly some days, that I and my sister had to go shopping for hats and scarfs. But with all this wonderful history...who cares about the weather! This is the family in front of Penrhyn Castle,built 1820's http//www.thevista.co.uk/index.php?page=wales_02-Penrhyn_Castle It was huge, and filled with impressive furniture...cameras were not allowed inside.
The only inside pic.I got to take...note the massive door and pull.


Huge vine covers allot of the stone.
Note the cross windows on the entrance towers...for the knights to shoot their bow and arrows at the enemy...cool!

Snowdonian mountains is the back drop to this impressive castle. We took a steam engine to Duster to see the castle there.
The Engines and the station are all run by volunteer's,who dress up in attire of days gone by.
Now that my ticket is punched,we are off!

See you in Dunster.... While passing the country side we saw a castle in... the distance. An little old lady from Wales, who rode with us said that was King Authors Castle, brother to King Henry the eight. In side the train there are signs that warn,"do not put head out windows"! Of course we don't see them until J. my brother in-law almost lost his head! Note the up coming tunnel, that is literal inches from the train! A hefty walk up the hill to my favorite Castle...Dunster,fully furnished,again no pictures allowed!http//www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-dunstercastleThe Coat of Arms to Dunster Castle





L. is entering the gate to a beautiful garden near Dunster Castle

The roses grown on huge vines here.
I have never in my whole life, ever smelt such a sweet rose's as the ones here


No L. Don't do it!!!
This is a strawberry tree...really!

A little nook to sit a wee bit.
We ended our visit to Dunster with lunch at the best restaurant in Dunster!Leek and Mushroom Pie. See my food blog for the recipe http://www.inmyweekitchen.blogspot.com/ Lots of thatched roof houses here

If I look wet,I am.It poured rain after our visit to the castle.
until nest time.........Cheers!
