Have you ever visited a place for the first time and fell in love with it? Or even to have the feeling of having already seen or experienced it, maybe in another life ๐Ÿ˜‚? Here it happened to me only a couple of times, that I remember at least, the first was in Paris when I visited the Palace of Versailles, I remember that I even cried for the emotion of being there after having dreamed of it for a long time and the second was when I visited Wilton House and its gardens. โˆ™ This stunning historic residence dates back to the 16th century and is located in the village of Wilton, just 5 miles from the center of Salisbury. It is surrounded by an estate of almost 6 hectares and is considered one of the most beautiful country houses of Great Britain. In contemporary times the residence was set of some films such as Barry Lyndon, The Madness of King George, My Queen and Tomb Raider (2018). Ps. I love these pictures, the villa is so beautiful that it seems painted ๐Ÿ˜ โˆ™ โˆ™ #wiltonhouse #wilton #salisbury #wiltshire #visitwiltshire #countryhouse #englishmanor #statelyhome #oldbuilding #heritage #englishcountryhouse #ig_uk #lovegreatbritain #britishsnaps #thelensbible #topukphoto #mytinyatlas #photosofbritain #london #photosofengland #travelling_uk #explore_britain #englishcountryside #igersuk #visitengland #Bestunitedkingdom #inghilterra #granbretagna #lovebritishlifestyle

Today I took a rejuvenating walk to Lulworth Cove, famous World Heritage Site on the Jurassic coast. It was a crisp winter morning, the air was refreshing, the sky was blue with plenty of sunshine. . As it was Monday morning, there were few people which makes this place even more special and gives those who visit it the chance to fully enjoy it. . . #lulworth #lulworthcove #westlulworth #durdledoor #dorset #visitdorset #persuepretty #visitbritain #ig_uk #lovegreatbritain #britishsnaps #thelensbible #topukphoto #mytinyatlas #photosofbritain #london #photosofengland #travelling_uk #explore_britain #englishcountryside #igersuk #visitengland #Bestunitedkingdom #inghilterra #granbretagna #lovebritishlifestyle

๐Ÿ“ธ @afternoontealife ใƒปใƒป #lovebritishlifestyle The Afternoon Tea at Grosvenor House was interestingly a repeat of the wedding tea made to honour the marriage of Harry and Megan called โ€˜Annaโ€™s Royal Afternoon Teaโ€™. There were continually refreshed sandwiches, both open and regular, lots of freshly baked light scones and delicious fancy sweet desserts representing each of the different elements of the wedding like the couple themselves, the ring, and more with crazy names. . That Top Tier of hand crafted pastries created in house to include mouth-watering cakes with titles such as The Invictus, The LA Special, Trilogy Ring, Tier 2 or a Myrtle Bouquet was a real treat. Possibly my favourite was the Trilogy Ring โ€“ Yellow gold and Dianaโ€™s Diamonds are featured in the trilogy engagement ring designed by Prince Harry so the oval chocolate ring with gold leaf was created in a trilogy of chocolate, Milk, Dark and White. . What impressed me was that the cakes as well as the sandwiches and the scones were refreshed. Not that we could eat any more after the amazing selection of delicious jams that meant we ate more scones than was probably healthy. The cherry on top as it were was that we got to take a slice of cake with us. So while this afternoon tea was not inexpensive, they have worked to make it value for money. . โค๏ธ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿฅ‚โค๏ธ .

Could you ever say that you came to England without having seen one of these red boxes? I still remember the first time I came to London and I bought a little telephone box โ˜Ž๏ธ as a souvenir, I still got it on the mantel of my fireplace!They are a symbol of England as much as the old mailboxes with their bright red color! to be honest...the Museum of London reports that the original boxes were actually intended to be a rather dashing green and silver, but this was rejected by the Post Office on the grounds that they would present a dangerous road hazard! . Keen to be practical, the design was also well-adapted to fashions of the time. Have you ever noticed that the door is considerably shorter than the roof of the box? Well if had been an upstanding gentleman of the 1920s or 1930s you would have appreciate this innovative feature, designed specifically to allow you to adorn your top hat once inside the booth! . Yet sadly with the twenty-first century has come the great decline of many Gilbert Scott telephone boxes as mobile have made them redundant, a lucky few are getting a new lease of life as stores for defibrillators, cafรจ, public libraries and even miniature art galleries ๐Ÿ˜ƒ Ps. My dream would be to get a closet from one of them! . . #salisbury #wiltshire #telephonebox #redtelephonebox #telephonebooth #telephone #streets_and_houses #mycountryhome #persuepretty #HomeTours #oldbuilding #visitbritain #ig_uk #lovegreatbritain #britishsnaps #thelensbible #topukphoto #mytinyatlas #photosofbritain #london #photosofengland #travelling_uk #explore_britain #englishcountryside #igersuk #visitengland #Bestunitedkingdom #inghilterra #granbretagna #lovebritishlifestyle

Another thatched roof cottage with a little creative editing to the sky to add some atmosphere to the scene. I don't know much about thatched roofs other than I like the way they look and the type of cottages they protect. But I was asked about how long they last. I found on a thatched website that a roof made of water reed which is the most durable should last 40-50 years with repairs as needed. The ridge needs to be replaced more often, maybe every 10-12 years and the best material for the ridge is winter wheat. Just a bit of info but feel free to share what you know about a thatched roof and if you have one please do share!

Ahhh cottages....what is prettier and more charming than a tiny countryside cottage in the middle of the English countryside ๐Ÿก? And if you add to that the recent snow and plenty of sunshine, you just feel like in paradise๐Ÿ˜!...at least this is how I felt when Greg and I went for a walk in the New Forest few days ago. . In Italy we have beautiful villages perched on the hills and fascinating historic centers but we do not have this type of housing and this is why I am totally fascinating by them... you will see many more cottages in my feed ๐Ÿ˜‚ . Historically a cottage is typically a small house, often a cosy dwelling in a rural or semi-rural location. The word comes from the architecture of England, where it originally referred to a house with ground floor living space and an upper floor of one or more bedrooms fitting under the eaves. Peasants were once known as cotters and the term cottage denoted the dwelling of a cotter. . . #newforest #abberleyhouse #cottage #thatchedcottage #streets_and_houses #mycountryhome #hampshire #visithampshire #persuepretty #HomeTours #oldbuilding #visitbritain #ig_uk #lovegreatbritain #britishsnaps #thelensbible #topukphoto #mytinyatlas #photosofbritain #london #photosofengland #travelling_uk #explore_britain #englishcountryside #igersuk #visitengland #Bestunitedkingdom #inghilterra #granbretagna #lovebritishlifestyle

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Today is a stormy, rainy day here in Dorset..I was supposed to go for a drive to take some pictures of cute hamlets but i guess i will have to give up unless i want to be completely soaked...I donโ€™t mind to go out in winter to take pictures in the cold, especially if it is a clear sunny day as it is the best time to shoot locations without having too many tourists around ๐Ÿ˜ฌ . Today I go back in time to a sunny summer day, when I took a double deck top open bus to visit the coastal town of Swanage. Originally a small port and fishing village, flourished in the Victorian area, when it first became a significant quarrying port and later a seaside resort for the rich of the day. Today the town remains a popular tourist resort, this being the town's primary industry, with many thousands of visitors coming to the town during the peak summer season, drawn by the bay's sandy beaches and other attractions. . Tip : Double-deck open top buses are used on the Poole and Bournemouth to Swanage routes in the summer months. The buses on these routes are branded as Purbeck Breezers.The Bournemouth to Swanage route was voted one of Britain's top three scenic bus routes in 2018 ๐Ÿคฉ . #swanage #swanagebeach #swanagebay #isleofpurbeck #poole #jurassiccoast #dorset #visitdorset #oldbuilding #visitbritain #ig_uk #lovegreatbritain #bbctravel #britishsnaps #thelensbible #topukphoto #mytinyatlas #photosofbritain #london #photosofengland #travelling_uk #explore_britain #englishcountryside #igersuk #visitengland #bestunitedkingdom #inghilterra #granbretagna #lovebritishlifestyle

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง A week ago Greg (my husband) and I went to Gloucestershire to see a car that we had found online and which, to our great pleasure, proved to be in perfect condition so much that we bought it on the spot! Given the proximity of the dealer to the town of Tewkesbury, we thought to stop there for lunch and take a look at its historical center full of medieval and Tudor buildings and its Abbey, a beautiful Norman church dating back to the 11th century, whose bell tower is thought to be the largest existing Norman tower. . . After a nice walk we decided to stop at this historic hotel, The Bell, attracted by its Tudor style but also by its inviting menu: my grilled salmon fillet was really tasty ๐Ÿ˜‹! The Bell Hotel was rebuilt in 1696 after being damaged by a disastrous fire and occupies the site of the earliest Guest House of the Monastery. . . On 23rd October 2021, Tewkesbury Abbey will celebrate 900 years of the consecration of the Abbey and the town will also celebrate 550 years since the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471. . . ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡นUna settimana fa io e Greg (mio marito) ci siamo recati nel Gloucestershire per visionare un auto che avevamo trovato online e che, con nostro enorme piacere, si eโ€™ rivelata in perfette condizioni tanto che lโ€™abbiamo comprata seduta stante! Data la vicinanza del concessionario alla cittadina di Tewkesbury, abbiamo pensato bene di fermarci li per pranzo e dare unโ€™ occhiata al suo centro storico ricco di edifici di epoca medievale e tudor e alla sua abbazia, una bella chiesa normanna risalente allโ€™11 secolo, il cui campanile si pensa essere la piuโ€™ grande torre normanna esistente. . . Dopo una bella passeggiata abbiamo deciso di fermarci in questo storico hotel, The Bell, attratti dal suo stile tudor ma anche dal suo menu invitante: il mio filetto di salmone alla griglia era davvero gustoso ๐Ÿ˜‹! Il Bell Hotel รจ stata ricostruita nel 1696 dopo essere stato danneggiato da un disastroso incendio e occupa il sito della prima Guest House del monastero costruita all'incirca nello stesso periodo dell'abbazia. Il 23 ottobre 2021, l'abbazia di Tewkesbury celebrerร  i 900 anni della consacrazione dell'Abbazia.

๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งGold Hill, a picturesque cobbled street which has the gloriously green Blackmore Vale as a backdrop, is one of the most photographed street in the whole of the UK. It was made famous by the iconic 1973 Hovis bread advert with a young boy struggling to push his bike up the hill. If you are going to visit Shaftesbury and you donโ€™t want to miss this wonderful view while enjoying something to eat or drink, there is a perfect solution to combine both activities: taking a seat at The Salt Cellar. This fantastically situated Cafรฉ sits at the very top of Gold Hill. In fine weather you may be lucky enough to get one of the tables out on the cobbles and enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and the view of Gold Hill and the Blackmore Vale beyond. Little curiosity: The famous thatched cottage, a grade II listed building, that makes this view even more idyllic was for sale last summer and some lucky buyers had the possibility to buy their own little slice of history. Ps. The little staffy on the left corner is called Shadow ๐Ÿถ , she is a lovely pup but unfortunately she is not for sale. Sorry about that ๐Ÿ˜œ . ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Gold Hill, una pittoresca strada acciottolata che ha come sfondo la verde Blackmore Valley, รจ una delle strade piรน fotografate di tutto il Regno Unito. รˆ stato resa famosa dall'iconica pubblicitร  del pane Hovis del 1973 girata da Ridley Scott dove un ragazzo lottava per spingere la sua bici su per la collina mentre consegnava il pane. Se vuoi visitare Shaftesbury e non vuoi perdere questa vista meravigliosa mentre ti godi qualcosa da mangiare o da bere, c'รจ una soluzione perfetta per combinare entrambe le cose: prendere posto alla "Cantina del Sale". Questo caffรจ situato in posizione fantastica si trova in cima alla Gold Hill. Con il bel tempo potresti avere la fortuna di sederti in uno dei tavoli allโ€™aperto e goderti l'aria fresca, il sole e la vista di Gold Hill e della Blackmore Valley.Piccola curiositร : il famoso cottage dal tetto di paglia, un edificio di valore storico, che rende questa vista ancora piรน idilliaca รจ stato in vendita la scorsa estate e alcuni fortunati compratori hanno avuto la possibilitร  di acquistare la loro piccola fetta di storia.

. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง Moyles Court, a 17th century manor house, was once the home of Dame Alice Lisle, the last lady to be publicly beheaded in England following a judicial trial. It is said that her spirit wanders the hallways of the mansion and the sound of her silk dress and the tapping of her heels can still be heard around the corridors.It has also been reported that she wanders the courtyard, embarking onto a spectral driverless carriage that is pulled by headless horses.In 1940 the building was requisitioned by the RAF and nowaday is a well established boarding school. . Since I was a child I have always been fascinated by folklore stories and I have a small collection of books that tell of ancient places and their legends. The school that I attended was an anonymous grey concrete building that did not allow great impulses of imagination for the fervent minds of us children ... I think I would have really liked to have the opportunity to study in a building so rich in history and character! . . ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Moyles Court, una casa padronale del 17 ยฐ secolo, un tempo era la casa di Alice Lisle, l'ultima donna ad essere decapitata pubblicamente in Inghilterra a seguito di un processo giudiziario. Si dice che il suo spirito infesti i corridoi della villa e che il rumore del suo vestito e il battito dei suoi tacchi possano ancora essere sentiti nei corridoi. รˆ stato anche riferito che si aggiri nel cortile a bordo di un carro spettrale senza conducente trainato da cavalli senza testa. Nel 1940 l'edificio fu requisito dalla RAF e oggi รจ un collegio scolastico. . Sin da quando ero bambina sono sempre stato affascinata dalle storie di folclore e ho una piccola collezione di libri che raccontano di luoghi antichi e delle loro leggende. La scuola che frequentavo era un anonimo edificio di cemento grigio che non permetteva grandi impulsi di immaginazione per le fervide menti di noi bambini ... Penso che mi sarebbe davvero piaciuto avere l'opportunitร  di studiare in un edificio cosรฌ ricco di storia e carattere! . #moylescourt #rockford #dorset #visitdorset #newforest #alicelisle

. ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง This morning, as I drove towards the village of Chalbury Common, my eyes were captured by a very unusual sight: a tower stood out alone on the top of a hill, surrounded only by groups of grazing sheep. I am a huge fan of the fantasy genre and when I saw this gothic red brick building, immersed in the mist of the early morning hours and lit only by the faint glow of the sun, it seemed to have come straight out of a Tolkien story. The Horton tower, said to have once been the tallest non-religious building in Britain (140 feet), was built in 1750 by architect and Lord of Horton Manor, Humphrey Sturt. Its original construction remains unclear, but one theory suggests its owner planned to use the tower as an observatory, stargazing in the night sky.Other reasons point to it as a place where Sturt could observe hunting, high up in the tower with views for miles around. Ps. it is also known as Sturtโ€™s folly. A folly is a building built mainly for decoration - an eye-catcher for the rich to admire from their property and they were quite popular in the 17th and 18th centuries. . . ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น Stamattina, mentre guidavo verso il villaggio di Chalbury Common per una delle mie solite passeggiate, i miei occhi furono catturati da uno spettacolo insolito: una torre si ergeva da sola sulla cima di una collina, circondata solo da gruppi di pecore al pascolo. Sono una grande fan del genere fantasy e quando l'ho vista, immersa nella nebbia delle prime ore del mattino e illuminata solo dal debole bagliore del sole, sembrava essere uscita direttamente da una storia di Tolkien. La Horton Tower, che in passato eโ€™stato il piรน alto edificio non religioso in Gran Bretagna (43 m), fu costruita nel 1750 dall'architetto e Lord di Horton Manor, Humphrey Sturt. Le ragioni della sua originaria costruzione non sono chiare, ma una teoria suggerisce che il suo proprietario pianificasse di usare la torre come osservatorio, osservando le stelle nel cielo notturno. Unโ€™altra che Sturt poteva osservare da li le battute di caccia, dallโ€™alto della torre con una vista che spaziava per miglia intorno alla sua proprietaโ€™. . #ChalburyCommon #dorset #visitdorset #hortontower
