Weekend in the land of the windmill, crocodile and the house in the clouds

1

Craig and his friends at the House in the Clouds Hi there,

Hope you are well. Just thought I would share with you a wonderful weekend I had with friends in Thorpeness, Suffolk. What a magical place – it was actually originally built and paid for by the vision of Scottish barrister Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie, and it really is so fascinating.

Our weekend consisted of lovely long walks, a couple of pub lunches and taking it in turn to prepare scrummy meals! The reason for going was my friend Jacqueline's birthday – there were 7 of us – 5 grown ups and 2 children so never a dull moment!



House at Thorpeness beach The house itself was stunning, right on the beach and Suffolk is a county I do really enjoy going to. I enjoyed Thorpeness and as well as the house in the clouds and the windmill we also saw the crocodile on the lake – crafted from wood but very lifelike!

Hope you like the photos, house in the clouds, photos of the gang and even me in a Craig in his dapper new hat! hat that I couldn't resist trying on in the antiques shop! 

Have you ever been to this part of the world? Any weekends away planned?

Craig

    Hi Craig. On an insomniac night I decided to catch up on the presenters blogs and couldn’t believe it is so long since you joined. I watched all the ’rounds’ and voted for you:-) I’m so pleased that you enjoyed your time in Suffolk – I live just a few miles from Thorpeness and I think that we have one of the best places to holiday. Come back again in the summer and you will love it more!! Keep on being fun. Sue x
