There are so many beautiful photos on here & one place just keeps coming up again & again - it is of course the Cotswolds 🌿 This magical area of middle England is full of charm, natural beauty & history 🌸 Did you know... - The total length of Cotswold stone walls running through it is longer than the Great Wall of China 😲 - Every year there is a cheese rolling competition & a round of double Gloucester is launched down a hill. Whoever reaches it first keeps it! 🧀 - It’s name comes from the ancient English word ‘wolds’ which translates as ‘gentle hills’ ☺️ - The local buildings are given their glow from limestone & in the North Cotswolds it’s honey coloured whereas in the South it’s more golden 🍯 - Bourton on the Water is the most visited village in the Cotswolds💧 - The whole of the Cotswolds covers 6 counties in England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 🌺 Hope you’ve found these facts interesting & enjoy looking at this alluring Cotswold cottage taken by @the.duchess.antiques 🏡🌻🏡🌻🏡🌻🏡 - - - - - #englandlife #capturingbritain #thecotswolds #cotswolds #cotswold #cotswoldlife #cotswoldslife #cotswoldway #cotswoldcottage #cotswoldsuk #visitcotswolds #lovethecotswolds #beautifulcottage #cottagesofinstagram #cottagegarden #cottagehome #cottagegardens #thatchedcottage #thatchedroof #thatchedhouse #englishcottage #prettyhomes #cutehouse #middleengland #beautifulengland #beautifuluk #postcardplaces #greatbritishgardens #instabritain #beautifulbritain

Our River God statue is looking a little poorly right now- he's been in a fight! ... with the weather.... Frostbite has been taking some of his toes and fingers so we have stepped in to restore them and repair cracks. The swaddling will be in place until the plaster is set and then will be removed. #richmonduponthames #hamhouse #visitbritain #gardensofengland #hiddenlondon #igerssurrey #cottagegardens #englishgardens #postcardplaces #alovefornaturesbest #iheartnature #gardenlovers #mytinyatlas #suitcasetravels #prettycitylondon #hamhouseNT #greatbritishgardens #prettylittlelondon #livinghistory #17thcentury

#pastvisits from 10th December 2018: So with Christmas rapidly approaching I thought I share some photos of my visit to Stourhead from only last Monday! This one feels a bit more Christmassy so I’m starting with it😊 Anyone already finished work for Christmas? Or has anyone been to @ntstourhead and seen the animals? . . . . #ntstourhead #stourhead #stourheadgardens @unumdesign #unumfam #nationaltrust #nationaltrustmember #nationaltrustmembers #deerseason #willow #animalsculpture #visitengland #glourious #framing #englishhouses #countrylivinguk #countrylivingmagazine #thisjaneaustenlife #beautifulbuildings #beautifulcapture #igerswiltshire #christmastime🎄 #tbt✌ #ntchallenge

I can recommend @cambo_gardens as an antidote to Brexit, climate change, rising sea levels and the Conservatives...at least for an afternoon. Well done all those who work hard to create amazing spaces thst can distract us..

Oof. Love a good Scottish garden. This here is at Cawdor Castle 🏰 The current Dowager Countess has a very cool cosmological theme going on with her sculptures 🔮Scottish artist James Parker used old slate from the castle roof to create this sphere with water running off it. Told you - very cool!

After the very stressful week I’ve had, I’m now going to lie on the sofa while everyone is out and read the magazine I bought two weeks ago and haven’t had time to open #geeklife #gardengeek #growyourownveg #growyourownfood #allotmentlove #allotmentlife #growvegetables #garden #gardening #englishwinter #greatbritishgardens #countrylife

Completed in 1762 & magnificently restored this year, Kew Gardens’ Great Pagoda is adorned with 80 gold-gilded dragons. It is an octagonal Tower, the number 8 having a lucky connotation in China. #luckynumber8 #greatpagoda #kewgardens #octagon #greatbritishgardens #pagoda #dragons #landmarkbuilding

This evening I have bought 50g of different native wild flower and grass seeds, a Fuggles Hop and a Rambling Rector Rose. This garden is going to look very different (and hopefully spectacular) next summer! Oh and I nearly forgot to mention the ponds! #ebhomeandgardens #gardendesign #gardendesigns #gardendesigner #gardendesignersoninstagram #wildflower #wildflowermeadow #hops #hedges #nativeplants #ukwildflowers #silverbirch #ginkgo #hazelhedge #wildlifegarden #yorkshiregarden #gardenlife #gardenersworld #landscapedesign #bedding #cottagegardens #fruittrees #greatbritishgardens #urbangarden #urbangardening #urbanmeadow #gardenscapes #countrylife

February was Snowdrop time and our visit Colesbourne Park near #Cirencester was on a beautiful cold but sunny winter's day. Why not plan your visits now - a weekend break is the perfect way! ➡️www.greatbritishgardens.co.uk/seasonal/snowdrops.html 🌸 @colesbournegardens

‘Harry & Ken venture up North’, Part 14. Still slightly discombobulated by his close encounter with the Orla aliens, Prince Harry spent some time with Sir Ken in Levens Hall Gardens contemplating life, the universe & everything before heading back to the big smoke. #whenharrymetken #actionman #kendoll #kendolls #quietcontemplation #waterlillies #levenshall #levenshallgardens #lifetheuniverseandeverything #dollsofinstagram #greatbritishgardens #gardens #lakedistrict
