After leaving London, I figured nothing could be worse, right? Thankfully we pulled into this cozy home in Colerne. The kitchen was spacious, there was a separate living area with toys, bedroom space for everyone and multiple toilets. This place was in the middle of a charming area of Western England. There was so much to explore, we would totally go back.
|The driveway was lined with rosemary bushes. |
They smelled wonderful.
|It was nice to spread out a bit.|
From Colerne we headed to a border town in Wales. We stayed in a place called Beggar's Bush. After a scary attempt at parking in the car park we emptied our bus and found ourselves in a rustic and charming refurbished barn. The kids made friends with the horse. Jan was a gracious host and we enjoyed our time here as well. She had the best honey I have ever tasted for us. That certainly sweetened the deal ; )
|The stone in the foreground and then wood to the left are the exterior to our portion of the home. |
It use to be a barn and those stone walls are thick. There were a lot of original timbers inside.

|This was a living room, fully equipped with toys!|
|Hyrum snagged this shot while I was trying to get things cleaned up |
and we were getting ready for church.
We made our way a bit deeper into the glorious country of Wales to find even more beauty and a wealth of national pride. These people are Welsh, not English and don't forget. Here we stayed in a dated but comfortable home. The host lived just next door with two children of her own. The kids all enjoyed a bit of football together.
|The views were amazing.|
We are now in Ireland at another charming cottage. It is clean and warm with plenty of storage and a yard for the kids to play in. I can handle this for three weeks!! So far we're 4 for 5 on the housing, so here's hoping we luck out for a few more stops before Germany.
