Elliston House ruin
Today we were expecting hail and snow and decided to stay local. We went into St. Boswell’s for a wander about the village and to visit the excellent bookshop and the cafe, homeware shop and delicatessen at Main Street Trading Company It’s my favourite bookshop and we spent a long time browsing. K&R bought six books. I resisted buying more books this time. My husband was a great reader and I am left with a lovely big collection to read.
We went for a walk in the fields and lanes around the holiday cottage. In the field behind the cottage is a fenced off overgrown plot that contains the ruins of Elliston House. I found a picture of it before it was left to crumble.
The bad weather didn’t arrive but we enjoyed staying local and having a relaxing day.
