Yes, this week I am in London visiting my sister for her 30th birthday! Soooo fun and so exciting! This past weekend we traveled out to the country for a big bash at an estate called Cliff Barns. A lot of people rent this house for weddings, anniversaries and birthdays. It was the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway with a big group of people. The house itself was so amazing and decorated to the nine’s. Nothing was left undone. The attention to detail in design and utility was incredible. The house had an eclectic/glam hunting lodge feel to it and every hook and antique bathtub was perfectly placed.
Don’t worry, I took a bath everyday and sat by the fire reading as much as I could. Love a good fire. Oh yea, England is still cold right now..spring has NOT sprung. Thus, the need for baths and fires. Well, lets face it, there is always a need for baths and fires.
Anywho, a true highlight of the trip was clay pigeon shooting. Yup, you heard it. We went Downton Abby style and had someone come and teach us how to clap pigeon shoot. We all got dressed up in english tweed jackets and Hunter boots for a jolly old day of “hunting.” It was super fun, except for the torrential downpour in the middle. This is England after all! Between rain showers, we really had blast! Cliff Barns is a wonderful escape and event location if you are looking for something unique and special abroad!
