Postcards from England: Christmas 2016 — Cotswolds Elegance

Lovely home in the Cotswolds decorated with a single wreath. But what stands out are the other elements -- stone fencing, interesting roofline, climbing vines, and tiled roof.

Dear Readers,

From the glitz and glamour of holiday season in London to the understated tones of the Cotswolds, Christmas is celebrated in many ways in England. Some homes in the country add only a single wreath on the door.  No flashing strings of lights, no blow-up Santas, no prancing reindeer on roofs or lawns.  Just the simplicity of greenery with a touch of berries, maybe a bow.  And how lovely that is.  Enjoy these homes — rooflines, stonework, interesting doorways — for what they are.  After all, you’re in the Cotswolds.

— Rusha and Bert

    We were there about 9 years ago and will be back this October. Wonderful old structures.

    • I guess those of us from America just have no idea how old structures can be. These were really old, yet in great shape and inhabited fully. Love this section of the country with all the features, details, and charm. Best wishes for a great trip. And a great new year! Rusha Sams

  2. Simply love the authenticity and purity of the Cotswold, Rusha.

    • We loved the authenticity and purity, too! That’s what drew us toward the places. Been there for so long yet the look and feel is so enticing. I just want to stay there and unwind! Best wishes for a productive 2017!

  3. Love the beauty of the simplicity. Definitely less is more!
    Have a wonderful holiday season.
