But sometimes, those of us who haven't been lucky enough to grow up near one forget that castles exist in real life too.
I've always wanted to see one.
And England was a gold mine when it came to it.
We found a wonderful, mysterious castle, on the edge of a lake, deep within the woods, atop a huge hill.
You can't make this stuff up.
Fairy tales were actually telling the truth.
It's called Old Wardour Castle.
And it was awesome.
Unfortunately we got there 10 minutes before closing time so we were only allowed a quick peak.
But then again... who actually sees a castle for the first time and can resist not exploring it?!
Not me, that's for sure.
It's really in an ideal location.
Has some good land surrounding it.
Might need some TLC, but other than that I think it's good to go.
Where is the dotted line I sign on to buy this place?
And with a final few looks back, we were off.
Old castles, quaint houses, good beer and wide open spaces.
I think this country definitely needs a thorough exploring in the warmer summer months.
