Sunset walk on Farncombe Estate

After slipping on our wellies, we set off to walk on the estate of The Fish Hotel. The 400-acre Farncombe Estate is a private estate which is also home to two sister hotels; Foxhill Manor and Dormy House.

Vetäisimme kumisaappaat jalkaa ja suuntasimme lenkille hotellin maille. 400 hehtaarin mittainen Farncombe Estate on yksityisalue, jossa on myös kaksi saman omistajan sisar hotellia; Foxhill Manor ja Dormy House.

You can freely wander along the paths that pass through meadows, greeting cows and cute little sheep along the way, most of them too busy to even notice you, just munching away on the grass. We were so pleased to see them grace freely and be a part of these most beautiful pastures.

Voit vapaasti vaeltaa pitkin mutaisia peltopolkuja, jotka kulkevat niittyjen läpi, ja matkalla tervehtiä lehmiä ja söpöjä pikku lampaita. Useimmat niistä eivät juuri edes kiinnitä sinuun huomiota vaan mutustelevat ruohoa kaikessa rauhassa. Ne ovat onnekkaita eläimiä upeissa maisemissa.

You can see the village of Broadway in the distance and for miles and miles, all you see is picturesque countryside hills and farming lands. Honestly, it looks like something out of a classic English landscape painting.

Etäisyydessä voit nähdä Broadwayn kylän ja näin korkealta näkyy myös kilometrien päähän viehättäviä maaseutu kukkuloita ja viljelysmaita. Ihan kuin jostain taidemaalauksesta. 

One thing to note about the English Countryside is that the people are incredibly friendly! Everyone greets you with a smile and happily guides you around the estate.

Ihmiset englannin maaseudulla ovat ihan uskomattoman ystävällisiä ja avuliaita! Jokainen tervehtii sinua hymyillen ja opastaa sinua mielellään parhaiden reittien valinnassa.

Our walk was a couple of hours long and we finished it off with the most beautiful golden and pink sunset overlooking a field of sheep.

Kävelymme kesti parisen tuntia ja päätimme sen upeaan kullankeltaiseen ja vaaleanpunaiseen auringonlaskuun lammas pellon ylitse. 

After our outdoor adventure it was time to put our feet up by the fire and have a cup of mulled wine at the hotelreminiscing how beautiful the British countryside really is. 

Ulkoilma seikkailumme jälkeen oli aika nostaa jalat ylös takkatulen ääressä hotellilla ja nauttia kupillinen glögiä.

    The sheep are so cute and this looks so relaxing! I actually am from a state that has a lot of nearby islands and there’s a ton of wild sheep on them! Also how gorgeous is this sunset? I’m jealous haha

      Hi Heather – we got so lucky with the sunset, it was almost surreal with all the sheep walking around and the colours turning pink. xx

      Some of the sheep were really interested in her and kept walking behind her. Annie is always a bit shy so she just does her own thing and ignores everyone around her – even her sheep friends 🙂 Have you been to the Cotswolds Katja? x

    What beautiful scenery, the pictures are so pretty. Annie seems to have no fear about being next to a cow, typical little dog thinking that they are much bigger than they actually are 😀 xx

      She certainly does 🙂 Annie concentrated more on sniffing around (and rolling on cow pats – she almost totally ruined that red jumper my mum knitted for her)
