My casual reading is usually an old Victoria magazine. Do we ever tire of them? No! When we've read the stories over and over, then we enjoy the pictures. So, I was reading through the March 1995 copy of Victoria. They had an article on some "holiday cottages" near Stropshire and Cheshire, an old place called Combermere Abbey. Here is a picture of the "cottages" near the abbey. We don't have cottages like these in the U.S. Just sayin'.
Victoria entices us to long to travel to Victorian England. But Victorian England doesn't always await us there! Modern England does, with its stainless steel and it's bright white walls and vivid yellow curtains. Maybe that's why so many of us prefer to travel via the magazine.
With one caveat -- this bathtub in Stone Lodge. I'd love to soak in a tub with a deep ledge next to it. Up to the neck in bubbles!
