We had a wonderful weekend with our friends. They are building a new home in a small village in Buckinghamshire and we stayed in it for the first time. It is absolutely gorgeous, set in three acres of fields backing on to a river. The house is not totally finished, but it very comfortable. It was great to catch up with them and we thoroughly enjoyed a very relaxing weekend.
On Sunday we went to Waddesdon Manor (photo above) and enjoyed wandering through its beautiful rooms and gardens. The sun was out and it was positively summery which was wonderful. It was amazing to see what is essentially a French chateau in the middle of Buckinghamshire. They have loads of events year round and you can even hire various rooms for entertaining. With the Rothschild connection, of course wine plays a big role, and there was a wine tasting going on when we were there. Needless to say we came home with two very nice bottles of wine!
After a very nice dinner with our friends on Sunday night we headed home to get ready for a very busy week!
