No, - not Hidcote - but a correction is needed to previous clue - it's in Wiltshire not Gloucestershire  (Glos/Wilts borders)

Here's another pic. & another clue, 

You might be a little embarrased if you visit on the wrong day of the week and meet the owners in the garden!

Here's a pic my OH took on 7/7/2010: anyone like to suggest where it is? 

PS the date taken is not a clue but I cant believe it's more than 13 years since she took it!

Guy I used to work with used to say "Silly as a box of matches" - I never did get the sense of that

look like you've lost a pound and found a penny was the saying when I was growing up for a glum face John

Ah! I was quoting an old Bristolian saying - something old Bristolians say!

Another, said about someone a bit dipsy, "He's a sandwich short of a picnic" with a variant: "A penny short of a shilling"

Said by someone astonished, "Well, I'll go to the foot of our stairs" - the American version of that is, "Well, I'll be horn-swaggled"
