Okay so before I talk about Castle Combe, I must first tell you how I found out about this beautiful place. I follow a gorgeous and inspirational girl on Instagram, named Ramona, Instagram name @monalogue. She is so inspiring and literally takes the most stunning photos of England that I have ever seen, she even makes it look like time was turned back by hundred years. So after I had been following her for a while, I started to notice her beautiful photos with her Morris Minor. Many of these photos had been taken in Castle Combe, and I couldn’t believe it was real so I just had to see it for myself!
• Tell me about yourself
I’m Mona and I’m a 24 year old instagrammer from Somerset! I travel around the UK with my boyfriend taking portraits and landscape photos. I love timeless and unspoiled villages and homes.
• Tell me about your beautiful car!
I always wanted a Morris Minor, even as a child! So when the opportunity came I bought the first one I fell in love with, and it takes us around the country on adventures.
• What made you visit castle Combe and what were your thoughts?
I visited Castle Combe after seeing a photo of it and thinking it was too good to be true, but it is true. It’s beautiful. You can see why so many films were made there.
• One thing you would give to your followers as ‘advice’ or a guide to weekends away in England.
I think don’t be afraid to take your time and just drive. That’s how we find a lot of the places we visit. It’s easy to make plans based on blogs or Instagram, but there are so many hidden gems to find if you go for a drive or a walk.
