Coldblow

Location: Kent, UK

Yes. Not a welcoming name but a very welcoming place to stay.
Apparently the road signs are often stolen which can make finding the place a little tricky.

Rear view.

The converted stable with the Focus proudly parked in front.

Duchess & Dorado. Dorado, on the right, is 31 years old!

The main house where our lovely hosts live.

More of those stairs!

The neighbours house. This is a style of building that is very common in this part of the country. These are Kentish Oasts (nothing to do with windmills) & hops were spread for drying in the turret. Many houses have 2 & some even have 4. Obviously some serious drinking goes on in these parts.

The pub in Appledore which is a few miles in the opposite direction & on the way to Rye. The name Appledore makes me think of Beatrix Potter & I fully expected to see Peter Rabbit strolling down the road.

A few miles towards Ashford is a forest reserve. This is the main road between where I'm staying & the major town of Ashford.

Yes. Another church. Appledore once stood on sea creeks where Danish vikings who had been dislodged by King Alfred, had their main base. In 1380, the French sailed in here & burnt down the village.

Appledore is very pretty.
