Exploring the Test Valley

The River Test
We've been decorating for five days solid and it was time for a break today to get some fresh air. Sunny, fluffy clouds and 22 degrees. Perfect weather. Living in Hampshire is wonderful because there are so many beautiful places to visit and we are so lucky to have the Test Valley nearby. Stockbridge village and the Down are favourites of ours, but first we took some B roads and ended up stumbling across the gorgeous thatched cottage village of Longstock and just down the lovely named "The Bunny" road, we stopped to admire the views of the River Test. The land is private, but I fell in love with the scenery. I'm sure you can see why.
