Escape the City

Happy #ThursdayFriday! Last weekend’s Bank Holiday got me thinking about countryside breaks. I do love London on a Bank Holiday, but with another bank holiday weekend at the end of the month, my thoughts are now turning to a weekend’s escape to the country…

So, today’s #5aday blog features 5 beautiful countryside retreats in glorious surroundings… all within 2 hours of London.

  1. Barnsley House – Stylish contemporary country-house retreat in the Cotswolds with stunning feature gardens. Screen shot 2013-05-09 at 07.29.36
