Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Cefn Mawr Viaduct and Horseshoe Falls

Pontcysyllte Aqueduct - A stream in the sky

With an impressive height of 126 feet 8 inches, the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in north east Wales is not only a remarkable feat of engineering but also an interesting and popular tourist attraction. The aqueduct over the valley of the River Dee is the longest and highest aqueduct in the UK and is fed by water from Horseshoe Falls. The aqueduct is also a part of World Heritage Site - an eleven-mile corridor from Horseshoe Falls in Llangollen to Gledrid in Shropshire.

Beechfield House : A beautiful cosy hideaway in Wiltshire

Beechfield House in Wiltshire is a beautiful country house hotel that seamlessly blends the old and new together. Beechfield was built in 1878 for a local farmer named Richard Keevil and remained a family home for nearly ninety years until it was converted into a hotel and renamed as Beechfield House.

Built in an Italianate square house style, this Grade II listed property has undergone a number of improvements and refurbishments transforming it into a luxury country house hotel. But it has managed to maintain a cosy, homely air. The luxury family hotel with its AA rosette restaurant is elegant, full of warmth and personality.

Visiting The Beautiful Cotswolds Village Of Castle Combe

Cotswolds is one of my favourite places in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings, lovely little tea rooms and cheerful pubs all exude a quintessential English charm. Every time I visit a Cotswolds village, I fall in love a little more with the area. And now after having visited many villages, I can safely say that Cotswolds is studded with the most beautiful villages in England.
