Brilliant Bowood

Brilliant Bowood

Mr R has recently started a job in Chippenham, despite us living in Bedfordshire, so this week I took pity on him and decided to accompany him so that he wouldn't have lonely evenings spent in a hotel room. And what a treat I had yesterday running round the grounds that the hotel is set in, including the beautiful Bowood House with its Capability Brown gardens. Managed 8k and it was only slow because I kept stopping to take photos. πŸ“·

  • Hi you..I wondered where you were! Oh my....what a wonderful magical palace to run!

    And..what is wrong with slow? You know me... run, ramble, photo stops... Perfick!

    Plus, you still covered a relaxed 8K ! Marvellous!

  • Nice to hear from you Razouski! Was wondering how your running was going.

    That looks a lovely place to run and absorb the tranquility! Slow is great!

  • How fab is That! Running tourism! Nothing finer for giving your runs a boost. Gives you a boost too! That will do you mo end of good. I bet you had a good breakfast too and a good night's sleep. Pity your husband had to work 😁

    The scenery looks beautiful. Lucky you πŸ™‚πŸƒβ€β™€οΈπŸ‘βœ”οΈ

  • Oh that looks so beautiful and 8k is great.

    Also delighted to hear that Mr R has a new job, shame it's so far away!

  • What a gorgeous place to do a magical 8k in. With that scenery who cares about the time?

  • Firstly, well done on an 8k run. I am only on week 3 so that's an incredible distance to someone like me. Well done.

    I live about half an hour from bowood and you're right, it's lovely. Despite living here for 9 years I only visited it for the first time a few years ago and was amazed to find somewhere like that pretty much on my doorstep. If you fancy venturing ever so slightly further afield then Castle Coombe is also very pretty

  • We will hopefully be renting a house in Melksham, so when I'm visiting I shall be looking for nice places to run. πŸ˜€

  • I work in Melksham and live about a mile from bowood...we should start our own little club!! 🀣🀣

  • Mr R is renting a house just outside Melksham in Shurnhold now. I'm really enjoying visiting and exploring Wiltshire. We went for a circular walk at Castle Coombe yesterday which was a treat.

    Starting a club sounds like a good idea. πŸ˜€

  • This is really spooky because just this morning I said to my hubby, " we should go and visit Bowood House"! It's not that far from us and we've never been.

    It looks really lovely and perfect for a run. Well done on the 8K.

  • I too have been wondering where you were and if you were okay.

    What gorgeous scenery to run through, you and Mr R are so lovely to each other.
