I’ve been daydreaming about staying at this beautiful Somerset property, Babington House. I want to wander the 18 acre estate and manor house, visit the cowshed spa, swim in the lovely outdoor pool, play tennis, read in the library, play croquet, have a perfect cocktail and collapse on a big bed piled high with pillows. More about Babington House.
I haven’t spent any time in England outside of Heathrow airport and I’d really love to go. Actually, I haven’t spent any time in the UK at all–which is strange because I grew up in a family with a lot of Irish pride (County Mayo), have an English countryside fixation, Cornwall dreams, haunted Scottish castle fascinations and a lot of other moony GB leanings. I am itching more than ever to remedy this sad state of affairs. Take me in your arms, Babington.
