We’re always looking for more ways to stay inspired to create and dream. Traveling to the European countryside is always a huge source of inspiration for Kristen, after all, it was her time spent working in Europe that inspired her to create the same heirloom-quality style she saw in boutiques there. Today, we want to highlight some of our favorite spots in the English Countryside.
Cheshire is complete with serene gardens. England 101 calls it a quiet place all about the outdoors. The gardens and country side are serene and delightful. Some of our favorite highlights inclue its ‘sweeping vistas, cosy country inns and ‘The Castle on the Rock’ – Beeston Castle and Woodland Park that is set on a hill.’
Essex is famously known as “Constable Country” after the painting by John Constable. Filled with villages, picture-perfect towns, and rolling hills, there isn’t much to keep Essex out of our daydreams. In Essex, you can find beautiful parks and gardens, making it a perfect stop on your English Countryside tour.
Yorkshire is another famous, favorite of ours in the English countryside. Both quiet countrysides and hapening market towns, there is something for everyone in Yorkshire. While you’re here, don’t forget to search for the rabbit that inspired Lewis Carroll to write Alice In Wonderland. It can be found in St. Mary;s Church!
If you haven’t notices, we love rolling hills. The Cotswolds is filled with them! It, too, had quiet places and bustling towns. You can visit anything from wildlife parks to town and villages. If you love to capture your moments in photographs, The Cotswolds has the perfect walking trails for you to snap a dreamy photo.
