Faraway House

Faraway House

Wouldn't this be a great place to work?

Does it make you think all Enid Blyton-y thoughts of The Magic Faraway Tree? Not that I'm nostalgic but my Year 3 teacher read many EB books to us. Terribly English and from another time (don't know if I'd read them to children now but I don't know...)

Faraway House

Faraway House is a quaint little office building in the middle of the city, dwarfed by taller buildings either side.


Maybe it could be a clubhouse for Brown Owls Faraway gals.

I am a Faraway and would love a cool clubhouse like that!

I want to make a dolls house sized one - I can pretend I live in a warehouse apartment on the top floor...

I was born in England and grew up there until I was 14 years old. I absolutely loved Enid Blyton books when I was young but I haven't seen any for years.

It's a hoot, isn't it!? It would make a very cool warehouse apartment and clubhouse. It's just near the market and lots of shops and cafs, it would be great.

I love the font used. Those windows are really cute too.

I can report that kids still love hearing the Faraway Tree but that adults don't necessarily love reading it as much as they thought they might. Especially second and third times through....

I think Enid Blyton rocks. Both my girls have read her. Miss ( Isobel is reading malory Towers at the moment!!

My 11 year old loves the faraway tree books and I love that building! Hope the top floor is very large because I want to live there too! (near the market, shops and cafes - perfect!)

i loved the books - i've just recently read them to julian and louis. where is that building?

isn't it amazing when you look up in the city and actually look at the buildings. some of them are just beautiful. i recently went into an old building on north terrace (oral surgeon) and just sat there (in the sterile waiting room) and imagine what it would have been like to live in 100 years ago.

That's fabulous - whenever I saw an enormous tree towering over others, I always wondered if it was the Faraway Tree. I collect Enid Blyton's books and read them constantly - can't wait to read them to my kids!
