Day 6 Whatever Tickles Your Fancy

I am lagging behind everyone else because I have been away for a few days to Tylney Hall in Hampshire, a country house hotel set in 66 acres of gardens.

Let me guide you through the front door
up the stairs
to our room

which overlooked one of the pools.

I straight away started on the box of chocolates

and look at this beautiful bouquet which was also for me.

All the wives who were accompanying their husbands at this business conference were given a beauty treatment of their choice on the first day (I chose an anti ageing facial) then I explored the beautiful grounds.

On the second day we had an official guided walk around Winchester.

I know the city quite well as we live near but it was very interesting and I learnt a lot of things. For instance I didn't know that Jane Austen was the last person to be interred in the cathedral.

This plaque was provided by the Jane Austen society and there are always fresh flowers here.

This is the oldest restaurant in Winchester where we had lunch.


  1. oooo wonderful, i could do with a break there!!!

  2. What a beautiful place! Have a sweet day!

  3. What a lovely place, lucky you!
    I have never been to Winchester but it looks charming.

  4. Love those Winchester pictures. I've been to Chawton and Bath to see where Austen lived and wrote, but I've not yet been to Winchester.

  5. I just happened upon your blog and was delighted to find such lovely pictures. The inn looks absolutely lovely. Do you know if anything has been filmed at it recently? It reminds me of one of the homes I've seen in a BBC movie, though I can't put my finger on which one right now.

    I look forward to reading more!
