The Great British Countryside

The family and I wanted to enjoy the last days of our Great British Summer and what better way to do that, then a walk in the country. We headed off to Chenies, which is an absolutely beautiful little village about 20 minutes outside of Greater London.

Greenery, beautiful old mansions, woodland streams, waterfalls it was like we stepped into an episode of BBC's 'The Great British Countryside'. 

Also felt like it was a perfect opportunity to whip out my Kurt Geiger biker boots. Fur lined and all snuggly it felt like I was walking on a cloud.

This seriously worried us.

What sort of disgruntled farmer would be this strict about his land?! And to reference the law....madness! We were constantly on the look out for this cruel grumpy looking man, sitting on a tractor with a huge shotgun, but thankfully no one of such description turned up.

What I wore... GAP Blue Oxford Shirt, Abercrombie Cut-Offs and Kurt Geiger Biker Boots.

And what my gorgeous little sister wore, Jack Wills Navy Gillet, and Topman #Trending Now T-Shirt.

My sister spotted this tree which has an uncanny resemblance to Dum Dum. For those who know what I'm talking about, I'm sure you'd all strong agree. And for the rest... you should really watch Night At The Museum.

We followed our mammouth walk with a huge pub dinner at The Cricketers. Gorgeous homemade pub food using locally sourced ingredients, with a very cosy interior. A perfect end to our summers evening.

We spent the evening gorging ourselves on huge portions of scrumptious food accompanied by a continuous stream of Pimms and Gin & Tonics, and then headed home feeling rather uncomfortably full.

What a glorious day!
