Sophie at the Cottage & her favourite countryside things February 28, 2017 22:05

This week at Pheasant Plucker & Son, we’re delighted to welcome guest Instagrammer Sophie, from Sophie at the Cottage. We can’t get enough of her feed which is packed full of beautiful country scenes, inviting pub corners and relaxed, laidback cottage interiors (not to mention a good sprinkling of Labradors!)

Cosy pub

We asked Sophie a few quick questions about her life in Oxfordshire as she shared some of her Instagram photos with us:

Favourite country pub?

I think one of my favourite country pubs is The Bull in Charlbury, it has the best fire, interior and is so cosy. The food is fab too! 

Best place for a Sunday roast?

The Bell at Hampton Poyle does the an epic Sunday roast! I can't fault it at all (it's another pub I would definitely recommend)

Walking labradors

My favourite thing to do in the countryside is…

without a doubt walk the dogs. 

If I didn't live in the countryside I'd live in…

Bournemouth, I absolutely love the sea, it's just so peaceful on the beach. 

What are the first three things you’d put in your perfect picnic hamper?

Definitely prosecco or champagne as you need some fizz at a picnic! Then it would probably have to be a scotch egg from the butcher and Tyrells crinkle cut cheese and pickled onion crisps (not the healthiest hamper!)

(But it sounds good to us!)


Best place for a weekend walk?

I live really close to Blenheim Palace so it’s always been somewhere I can walk to with my friends and family and enjoy a wander around. 

I couldn't live without…

My labradors. We’ve had them as part of the family for as long as I can remember so I can't really envision a home without them now. They are just the most loving animals.

Tell us a secret!

This isn’t a particularly juicy secret but I have an obsession with reality TV - I watch all of it - Keeping up with the Kardashians, every Real Housewives, TOWIE, Made in Chelsea, you name it I have probably watched it! Sitting in front of the fire with a glass of wine in hand - HEAVEN! My boyfriend does sit with me whilst I do this funnily enough!
