Friday Fun: Homes to Tempt You in Britain

  1. I can see how living in one of these might ease the pain of living on this imploding island! (Sorry, I must stop writing comments immediately after watching the news…) I’ll take the first one please 🙂

  2. That first one is going to get quite crowded, Marina Sofia! I’d love it, too! They’re all beautiful, though, so it was a bit hard to choose for me.

  3. Well I don’t want something very grand so either of the Suffolk homes would suit me just perfectly. I assume they come with a gardener to keep that lawn pristine because if left to me, it would be a disaster
