    Croft Castle and Culmington Cuisine

    September 26, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Had lunch at Croft Castle - one of many historic homes maintained by the National Trust. Some of the Croft family still live there. A large manor house that kinda looks like a castle, with a small church and stables. A lot like Olveston, but with no guided tour, just information and things.

    A very interesting mix of old and new (new meaning 19th or 20th century or so). Interesting fact - they built a wall by the servants' quarters so the servants couldn't look down on the family through the inner courtyard. Lots of history of the family members, including a room on the wars and their involvement. Also a square piano and a creepy clock. And cool exhibits to show the effects of touching on gilt wood and fabric.

    Lots of interesting things and a great time. Also bought second hand books. There's an old Roman hill fort up the hill but didn't walk up there this time.

    Followed our trip to Croft Castle with a quick call into a local supermarket in Ludlow (very nice). Also popped into the only church in Britain with a metal spire.

    Had a lovely dinner at The Clive, followed by some much missed QI!

    Ross on Wye

    August 17, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Two lovely days and 3 nights with Linda and Denise. What wonderful hosts.
    A welcome sleep in after the previous long day was followed by a visit from Kristy, Matt and Hattie. Linda took some fantastic photos of Hattie playing with Teddy Bears on the floor of her lounge room.
    A walk through Ross on Wye and a pub lunch at The Royal - if Kim had been hungrier she could have had her long awaited Steak and Ale Pie!
    No. 3 Restaurant for Dinner - absolutely perfect - one of the finest reasonably priced restaurants we have ever been to.
    Road trip the next day to Broadway and Bourton on the Water. Quaint villages with pubs, cafes and shops. The weather went from warm bright sunshine to cold wind and rain - fortunately the former for most of the day.
    Home for Moet, red wine, beer and some fantastic ante pasto - chatting till late in the night.
