Ilam Cottages

Not far from Dovedale, Derbyshire, that we visited yesterday, is the Ilam Estate.

Here there is a big house, which is now a Youth Hostel with an excellent restaurant also, a lovely little church and a small village, all in the middle of beautiful hilly countryside.

One of the highlights of the village are these swiss style cottages on the path leading up to the hall.

(Tomorrow I will move away from Derbyshire to other things.)

Time stood still, this is an unique building, love the colors, that tree in the foreground does belong there.
Brian Walbey: This is a lovely little village in the Derbyshire hills Astrid, I'm sure you would love this area if you ever get over to England in time to come.
It's too long since we went up to Derbyshire, thanks for the tour Brian, we will have to go there again
Brian Walbey: I'm sure you would enjoy another trip to Derbyshire Bill if you can ever find the time.

Well worth the visit Brian, well seen.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, a bit of a long stretch from you to here but very worth while.
