This past (long!) weekend, Ben and I were invited to join two good friends back at their family home near Minehead in Exmoor National Park. Being in my favourite county, how could we say no? We set off on the Thursday night ahead of the traffic to the beautiful country home of Jake’s aunt – a stunning 20 acres of nothing but rolling fields and woodlands, surrounded by much more of the same.
We spent our days on walks, at the beach, or exploring nearby towns. Our friend’s gran had us over for afternoon tea complete with homemade brownies and fruit cake – it was wonderful (so English!).
At night we would settle in for a big feast with 14 of us in total. We had an amazing time!
Best of all, the country home the aunt owned had all sorts of animals. Dogs, chickens, roosters, cows, horses… Ben and I got an insight to farm life.
I absolutely love Somerset. I always have the best time there and the countryside is the most dynamic and stunning in England (that’s my opinion anyways!). X
