a saturday in wiltshire

We headed west to Wiltshire on Saturday, where we stopped by the Compton Marbling Fairs - little Christmas craft fairs held in farmyard barns just outside Tisbury. We'd come to see our friend Edward, whose parents live nearby.

We had lunch afterwards at the incredibly special Pythouse Kitchen Garden - the cafe is situated in an old potting shed overlooking a glorious walled garden.

A wonderful starter - heritage carrots with goat's cheese and fig puree.

A brilliantly compact and delicious menu!

Charlotte looking marvellous in the vegetable patch post-lunch. Incredible light.

Just as the sun was setting, we drove through this monumental arch on the Fonthill Estate. The gateway originally lead to Fonthill Abbey, a large Gothic revival country house, of which little remains. We stayed just up the road from here, at the Beckford Arms, back in May. Another great spot for lunch!
