At a time when the news veers from the depressing to the downright terrifying, it’s more cheering than ever to hear about people making their dreams become reality. My amazing friend Emma Bradshaw has done just that.
With her husband Pete, and their three lovely boys, Emma has taken on the gorgeous Daneway pub and campsite, in a beautiful Cotswolds valley. If you already know of Emma, you won’t be surprised to hear that she’s brought her particular magic to the project, with endless wonderful touches, from the chips served in enamelware mugs to the roadside honesty box shop. It’s such a special place that even HRH the Prince of Wales visited last week!
I’ve written about the Daneway for This Your Kingdom, so do pop over there for more details, particularly if you’d like to pay it a visit. For a slice of the rural good life you can follow along with Emma on Instagram. Personally, I’m excitedly waiting for her to share the imminent arrival of the handcrafted Shepherd’s Hut that will soon be be gracing the Daneway’s stream-side campsite. Her feed is a little slice of bliss!
