What you need to know before your trail

Suzanna and Barney Blake are swapping city life for the countryside – but they’re not planning on retiring or anything! No, they are rather keen and determined to breathe new life into the Honeycote Arms and as well as in to their marriage.

Ginny Tait is also heading to Honeycote and she’s with her two attractive daughters as well as  a great deal of baggage.

Newly divorced Ginny Tait arrives in Honeycote at around the same time – with very nubile twin daughters and an awful lot of baggage.

Honeycote is not the quiet village everyone assumes it to be. And let’s face it, it’s the quiet ones you have to watch out for.

Travel Guide

Honeycote is fictional but it could be a mix of any one of the pretty Cotswold villages really as there are many Honeycote look a likes we think!

Making Hay might sound like a countryside and innocent pastime but of course it can have many connotations. The village is only fifteen  minutes way from her old life but for Ginny and David it’s got some olde-worlde chocolate box perfection, and it’s going to be where she can carry out any kind of fantasy she likes.

That kind of chocolate box perfection extends to the pub which  a pub in the process of being renovated, a post office where you walk in and there’s a lovely aroma of croissants and other pastries

Honeycote House is the pinnacle of Cotswold beauty:

“Honeycote house was an idyll,  a sprawling Cotswold family one that belonged in the page of a magazine.”
