Welcome to The Hearth and Soul Link Party where this week it’s all about how to expand your horizons – in terms of travel, your home, and even your cooking!

At The Hearth and Soul Link Party, posts about anything that feeds your soul are welcome – from family, home, decorating, crafts and DIY to travel, organisation, book reviews, the arts and self improvement. And of course, food from the hearth to feed your soul is a real favourite here too!

It’s definitely time to expand our horizons at our house with lots of exciting changes happening. They include the start of a decorating project, another trip abroad and some more things it’s to early to share. The thing I’m most grateful for is that it’s all good stuff!

Expand your horizons and join me on a virtual visit to a beautiful stately home, Greys Court near Henley on Thames.

The amazing thing about Greys Court is that it has been a real family home for centuries. Find out more about this charming Tudor house in this post.

  1. Hi April! Greys Court is so beautiful! Keeping with the travel theme I am excited to share my favourite video from our family’s 6 month adventure in Costa Rica: 6 months in 6 minutes. It’s a great compilation of so many fun things we did. Can’t wait to do it all again. 🙂
