A day in Wells

T and I took a trip to Wells to see Debbie, a family friend who recently moved to an incredible house with a view of the cathedral. It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and we drove cross-country with the windows down, looking out for lambs.
After elevenses in the summer house, we took a walk along the water, spotting ducks and swans, before hitting the local playground which T loved. Back at the house, T conveniently took a nap in time for us to enjoy a lazy lunch. Debbie had made a delicious halloumi salad, studded with oranges and toasted hazelnuts, served with homemade focaccia and a spot of lunchtime white wine drinking. For pudding, Eton Mess ice cream.
The house is a Georgian beauty. If it were a person, you'd describe her as having impeccable bone structure. Debbie has collected Arts & Crafts furniture for many years, and the house is full of beautiful tables, chairs, sideboards and decorative pieces. With a view of Wells Cathedral from the front, beehives in the courtyard garden (which is stuffed full of vegetable beds and fruit trees/bushes), it felt like I'd walked into a World of Interiors shoot. And to top it off, Glastonbury Tor is visible from one of the top floor bedrooms. But the room I coveted most was the airing cupboard - huge and completely brilliantly organised, each type of linen had its own labelled basket. Swoon.
