    DefaultHere's a little bit of England.

    We took the boys on holiday last week, we didn't go too far, just around 2 hours drive away into the county of Herefordshire where my mother in law has a holiday caravan on a beautiful countryside park.

    It is set in acres of lush green fields in a place called the Goldern Valley, where there are hundreds of public footpath walks and bridle ways for horses.

    We had a nice week and tired the boys out into the bargain. Jasper just couldn't make some of the long walks we went on but was content to stay near the caravan with my son.

    Here's a picture trail of how we spent some of our week~


    The caravan and small awning where the dogs slept.


    The park on which we stayed, all of that green field beyond the oak trees was dedicated to dogs.


    Me and my shadow.


    Jonathan and the boys.


    We crossed this small bridge on the park into the neighbouring fields to follow a public footpath into the next village.
    The red phone box is also on the park, they are few and far between nowadays, having been replaced with glass booths.


    Into the next field, Jed was just about to begin a frenzied butt tuck here, notice the tail tuck and evil glint?




    This tiny church was called St Mary Magdeline and surprisingly was unlocked, we were able to go in for a while, it was very simple, yet beautiful at the same time.


    Accross the road from the church was this tiny gas station with ancient pumps which were all still in perfect working order.


    The Herefordshire bull is one of the county's symbols, it appears on the city coat of arms and the football team badge, we met this guy as we walked up the lane.


    These were a noisy bunch of porkers, we could hear their grunts and squeals from a mile off!!


    This pretty mare greeted us over the fence along the lane.


    Another tiny village church less than a mile from the other one.


    Jed being lifted over the style back onto our park.


    Enjoying some R&R after his walk.


    We visited this castle which was just up the road too, the "hole in the wall" was the toilet would you believe!


    Views from the castle.

    The boys thoroughly enjoyed their trip, Jasper has slept solidly since our return.

    Thanks for sharing with us! It is a beautiful place! The stained glass in the church was really nice. And what a shame about the traditional phone booths...I always thought yours there in the UK had lots of character. I think phone booths are a dying breed anyway because of cell phones!
