Castle Hedingham

After our visit to Hedingham Castle we opted for a walk around the village of Castle Hedingham







Before having a very nice lunch at Buckley's Tearooms






Some of the various teas available


before strolling around the rest of the village




Not the place for lunch in the middle of a day out








and walking back to the castle where our car is parked

What a sweet village. Take out the cars and it is like walking through a storybook.

Beautiful little village. I'm sure that everyone is a very careful driver in that community with the streets so close to the homes. Love the flowers and the way they are displayed. I could happily join you in The Snug one day for tea! =D

Wonderful weekend to you!

Thank you for the lovely stroll through the village. It seems so calm and peaceful.
Our lilacs just started to open near the base of Mt. Hood in Oregon. Spring is so lovely, isn't it!

You make me quite homesick!
Loved seeing the thatch and the thick dark beams.
I always get such pleasure from your posts!
Best to both of you.
Hope your weather is better?

Dear Barbara,
Sending a Mothers Day Hug across the ocean to you. That village is like a Fairy Tale. The streets are sooo clean. Wish I could visit it some day. Got to get going. I am like a snail, this hip pain is awful,soon a new Hip.. I may drop
of the computer for a week or so. It's my first surgery.. Be well.

This village was truly beautiful. It is exactly how I picture in my mind when I think of where I would like to visit. Your photos are gorgeous, thanks for sharing.

If only those hollyhocks had been blooming in the first photo...hollyhocks and thatched roofs, what a wonderful combination!

Thank you for the walk through town...I enjoyed every photo.

What a lovely sunshiny day you had! Adds to the delightful walkways and tea and togetherness.

I do love this village and the houses, but I must say I am not sure I could live in a house that has windows right onto the road like that. Our house is set back from the road a lot way and the idea of people being able to walk past and "look in" scares me a little. I also like The snug, our next town is called snug. Such a funny name.
