"A little off grid living"

"One of three yurts tucked away in two hundred acres of private woodland.  Perfect for a little off grid living..." . 
Leafing through Alastair Sawday's "Dog-friendly breaks in Britain" we came across the website, 
www.canopyandstars and found this description of Birch Place...and it's exactly that.

Summer 2

Visits from family and friends + picnics and barbecues + long bright warm days = essential ingredients for a lovely summer
(a longer and warmer summer than last year)

Summer 1


Each walk with the dogs is an adventure.  As winter gave way to spring, Maddi and Mo grew bolder and I grew more confident in exploring the paths around the lake, through the woodlands and along the river.  Maddi and Mo love swimming (and chasing swans and ducks!) These pics are taken along the paths I do most often with the dogs between Barden Lake and the school fields.

This pic summed up Spring for me this year.  It was taken at the beginning of a walk we often took during winter - I couldn't believe how it had been transformed from a plain muddy path to such abundant foilage and colour.
