Outfit: The Summerisland Gatelodges


These gatelodges, seem aptly named Summerisland on a day like this with the sun bright and warm on your brow.
Their bright blue doors and trim also does remind me of islands and tropical waters, even if these wee houses are surrounded by rolling green hills. They're not far from our own small gatehouse and they always look quite cheerful even on grey days. Since we moved into a gatehouse ourselves our eyes are always peeled for other gatehouses wherever we go. There are still many around the countryside even when the main estate they once belonged to has been divided up by roads and housing complexes. Some aren't in good condition, roofs caved in and nature beginning to reclaim the once pretty buildings, but they're still charming in their own way adding a sense of adventure to the little green wooded areas--like you are discovering some forgotten treasure. It's easy to see why they do fall into neglect, most gatehouses are too small for a modern family to live in them and like the Summerisland gatelodges, lacking modern amenities like bathrooms or kitchens!
