Hello from our new pad! Jokes! Not quite but sometimes I do feel like this is our very own 'Fairycastle by the sea' as it has been called. It is one of our favourite dog walking spots and not only over looks the sea but has it's own forest and Nature reserve leading along the cliffs to sandy, beautiful beaches. Such a special place.
I'm not going to go into great detail about it's wonderful history, i'm saving it for a more detailed post coming post. One thing I do think I should mention is that this was once the home (in the height of his fortune) of Harry Gordon Selfridge and family.
Tonight is the last Episode of the Mr Selfridge series on ITV *weeps*, so I thought this post was fitting. Both Harry and Rose are buried in a local cemetary and there is lot's of juicy local Selfridge history to come, i'm saving it for when we are all having HGS withdrawal symptoms.
