Thanks to all our visitors this week! After the storms and having to reopen 2 days later than planned we were very grateful the rain let up and kids on half-term were able to get out and about again. It's great to see so your tags and feedback and it's lovely to be open again 😊
We're open Wednesdays and weekends now until Easter. Looking forward to a nice (relatively dry) spring 🙏🌱🌿
My Saturday afternoon nature fix certainly didn’t disappoint.... I’ve just spend a few hours exploring Puzzle wood. We are so blessed to have this on our doorstep. It’s like an insane hidden land that reveals a magical ancient wood of moss, fern, trees and rock formations .... ( I am a bit obsessed with moss on rocks and ferns ), the atmosphere, peace and energy here has certainly nourished my soul.
Puzzlewood is the result of natural underground caves , that has been exposed over the years by water erosion. I loved my geography at school.
I don’t think the video even does it justice, but if you appreciate nature then I can highly recommend a visit.
London is a city that inspire me a lot for architecture and street photography, mainly in the financial building "The City". This pic have been take at rush hours but I've try to get a feeling of a ghost town, a extremely quiet and harsh place !

Craigmillar Castle is best known for its association with Mary, Queen of Scots. Following an illness after the birth of her son, the future James VI, Mary arrived at Craigmillar on 20 November 1566 to convalesce. Before she left on 7 December 1566, a pact known as the "Craigmillar Bond" was made, with or without her knowledge, to dispose of her husband Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley.
The lands of Craigmillar were granted to the monks of Dunfermline Abbey by King David I in the 12th century.
The Preston family were first granted land in the area by King David II in 1342 and held 2/3 of the estate.
In a further grant of 1374, King Robert II gave the remaining lands of Craigmillar to Sir Simon de Preston, Sheriff of Midlothian.
It was Simon's son, Simon Preston, or his grandson, Sir George Preston, who began work on the tower house which now forms the core of the castle.
In 1544, during the so-called Rough Wooing of Henry VIII of England, the English attempted to impose, by military force, a marriage alliance between Edward, Prince of Wales, and the young Mary, Queen of Scots. Craigmillar Castle was burned by English troops but repaired and remodelled by the Prestons.
On the death of Sir Robert Preston in 1639, Craigmillar passed to a distant cousin, David Preston of Whitehill. His son sold the castle out of the family, and it was bought by Sir John Gilmour .
He remodelled the west range to provide more modern accommodation in the 1660s, but in the early 18th century, the Gilmours left the castle for Inch House, just west of Craigmillar.
It was claimed that two of the laird's daughters continued to live in Craigmillar Castle after the rest of the family had left. Afterwards, Craigmillar Castle formed a romantic feature in the park of the Inch estate. It was ruined by 1775.

When the rain came down we all headed in for a slap up lunch at the Pearson’s Arms. All fresh off the boat - Mussels, oysters and fish and chips for all the kids - delish 😋.
Thank you Mum for capturing these glamorous pics of me wolfing down a bucket of mussels 😂 @pearsonsarms
Haven't shared any Devon photos in a while, as all the bloody storms have meant weekends recently have been spent hunkering down inside.
I took these photos of a hidden little spot, that only the locals know about, over the Christmas break. It's called Bucks Mills, that can be found just before the infamous Clovelly. It's a village on a cliff, that leads to a pebble beach (perfect for BBQs and bonfires!) and a cute little waterfall.
It's often quiet, with the occasional family going rock pooling or perhaps a dog walker or two. One of my favourite hidden treasures in North Devon! 💫🌅

Amazing weekend touring Skye in the new @forduk Puma. Skye certainly threw all different kinds of weather at us. Rain, sleet, sunshine, floods and gale force winds. But it was definitely a memorable experience and it was a pleasure to drive this car. Now, back to my work tomorrow in my neglected Fiesta 😂😂
A much needed spell of sunshine this weekend 🌞 Looking beautiful as always, with plenty of signs of spring everywhere 🌱🌿🌳
Never get bored of this beautiful Forest 😍
We are #DeanWye .
Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and reshapes of the Honesty Bookshop in Hay-on-Wye! I’m happy to see that this little book town is of interest to so many of you. More bookshop photos coming soon😊 And in the meantime I’ve saved the stories from the trip in the highlights. Happy Friday!

A little trip I did last week that I haven’t shared with you yet. Visiting Hay-on-Wye in Wales has been on my list for a very long time. Have you heard of it? With over twenty bookshops, it is often described as "the town of books", and is both the National Book Town of Wales and the site of the annual Hay Festival. •
This is the Honesty Bookshop - a tradition since the 1960’s. All books here are £1. There is no till, money is simply left in the collecting box. All proceeds go the restoration of Hay Castle which is currently under construction.
Expect more book photos from Hay-on-Wye soon☺️📚
Can never quite get enough of these floral arches 🌸 @mrfoggsgb

The prettiest cottage of them all. It makes total sense that it’s called Rose cottage, doesn’t it?☺️ Would love to revisit it in springtime! Spotted during last weekend’s trip to the Cotswolds in the stormy weather. Haven’t left the house this weekend😅
