Moody landscapes and dreamy pictures populate this nostalgic account celebrating the beauty of the British countryside. The creator, Carolyn, lives in a small seaside town in the north of England. She has mastered the art of the staycation for quite some time, serving followers with amazing landscapes, cute cottages and pictures of her adorable dog Lenny.
