This week's theme was: L is for Linked
The stay in the cottage in the middle of nowhere was wonderful. It wasn't quite as out far from civilisation as I'd expected as there was a farm just a few hundreds yards lower down the hill and it was only a mile from the nearest village. But to anyone who lives in the city, it probably seems very wild and remote.
There were a couple of these cute copper wire sheep as ornaments on the mantelpiece. I couldn't resist taking one of them out into the sunshine to photograph for this week's theme.
As you can see, there were no other houses visible from the cottage, which added to the feeling of remoteness.
And this shot was taken the following day when the weather was sunnier.
It was originally a game keeper's cottage on a big estate, but now it's available for rent for holidays.
It is off the grid, but there is some electricity provided via a generator. A fridge and radio are provided, but no TV and only one bar of mobile phone signal. There is, however, a wood burning stove and a gas cooker so the cottage was very cosy. We enjoyed our few days there enormously.
