There's a charming retreat of sorts just outside of London called "Pinecroft", nestled back from the road on a woodland piece of property, and offering a variety of attractions. Most widely known for it's tea room and pottery making, Pinecroft also hosts a bed and breakfast, a large pond with a small beach on one side and a picturesque waterfall on the other. There's also a number of small cottages, each one dedicated to one of many spa-type treatments. The trees are so tall that you truly feel embraced under their majestic canopy. It's a place that's good for the body and soul!
Here's one angle looking at the front of the tea room, the main building.
A view of the waterfall ...
This stone frog is a permanent resident, and has some history behind it. Of course you have to pet it ... it might bring you good luck!
This swan was very obliging, and looked so serene against the backdrop of fall colours.
I'm looking forward to going back again soon; I hear they have a heck of a bluegrass jam session on Sunday afternoons!
