We just came back from the most amazing weekend away in the English countryside. Forest Row in East Sussex county is only about a 90 minute drive from London, and it feels like another world. The Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club is set amidst rolling green hills surrounded by lush forest and it feels like you’ve walked onto the set of Downton Abbey. There’s even a small farm specialising in llamas and alpacas just a short walk away.
In contrast to the grandeur of the manor, the rustic farm was so charming. I saw llamas, alpacas, and reindeer for the first time. So adorable and majestic in their own ways.
I think farms are my new favourite places to photograph.
We also went on some lovely forest walks. Ashdown Forest is the original inspiration for A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh.
The splendour of the English countryside in autumn is something I’ll never tire of.
