    I am 40 minutes from a fantastic beach and great day out in Hunstanton. It has a large car park for motorhomes and coaches £5 a day

    30 minutes from the gorgeous Sierra mountains of Andalucia. Sun and shorts in the morning, snow-throwing in the afternoon. Unbeatable!

    20 minutes west and you're in the centre of beautiful Edinburgh, 20 minutes east and you have beaches and golf courses. (y)

    Naughty corner again Tootles! My Mum's family are from that area. ;)

    Best things near us? The views, the quiet, the neighbours. Otherwise the Border Castles (Hume, Floors etc) the Abbeys, Lindisfarne, Kelso, Melrose, Berwick...... then there is The Southern Upland Way, the end of The Pennine Way, various long distance cycle rides...... too much to list to be honest.

    Glad to see the sense of humor back! Family tradition is that one of them was indeed a witch.

    Mum says her vacuum cleaner needs a service after she took it out last time. (she's too modern for a besom)

    Good place to park in woods. Aunty Liz's house in Sandringham estate. The small roads around have loads of bays. That's Queen Elizabeth to non royals. Her house is worth seeing too!
