    White Hart Hotel

    August 25, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Did we say it was Bank Holiday weekend?
    Accommodation was a bit tight so Bern lashed out on a more upmarket hotel in a place called Stockbridge.
    Great hotel, very nicely put together. Building on the site since 12th century. The pub has been updated a littel
    Parts were originally the Brewhouse for the church next door. Our room overlooks the old cemetery, very atmospheric.Read more

    Andover - Hampshire

    May 16, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Route from London was past Heathrow, then onwards into the country. Pushed further than planned. Weather was good, "make hay when the sun shines" as these okes would say.
    Lesson 1 - make sure baggage is properly secured
    Lesson 2 - make sure the straps don't go into the rear wheel
    Wildlife - Fox
    Roadkill - Rabbit / Hedgehog / Squirrel

    Second stop of the day.
    How do you top Jane Austin?

    Well Mottisfort Abbey was pretty close.

    We found out what Saturday on a Bank Holiday is like. The carpark was a feral jungle and we only got in because Bernadette jumped out of the car and told a woman that was our spot. Check d afterwards and al the tyres and paint work was OK. Go Bern.

    House is built on an old abbey and was left in good nick to the National Trust in the 50s.

    Great gardens and river runs through the grounds. Usual crowds of kids rolling down grass and lots of small boys picking up stones.

    Had a lovely time.

    Hampton Court Palace, England

    September 9, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    The last place we visited on our 6 day London Pass was Hampton Court Palace. The building of the Palace began in the 1500s by Cardinal Thomas Wolsey, he was a favourite of King Henry VIII. The King seized the Palace when Wolsey fell out of favour. Numerous Monarchs have lived in the Palace and redesigned and extended on the original design. It is an enormous Palace with beautiful grounds with numerous manicured gardens. Not only could you do an audio tour but they also had an interactive tour with historic parts played by actors. We travelled onto Andover for our accommodation tonight.Read more

    One grand time in Wearne

    August 9, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    A well needed rest and a really lovely relaxing few days with Karen and David. A grand time in more ways than one...Grand accommodation and location complete with wonderful canine companions, and the car has now completed over 1000 miles on this roadtrip!! We're recharged, excellently fed and watered, and there's one more evening to revise before Thruxton and my racing licence test tomorrow!Read more

    Sunny driving

    April 2, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 9 °C

    After an overnight stop in Hampshire, driving the rest of the way to Folkestone. Beautiful sunny day - fingers crossed it is the same in Belgium and remains so for the week.

    February 12, 2012 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 3 °C

    Well we've once again spent a very nice night at the Travelodge at Eastleigh.
    It's about 6 miles from the port at Southampton, it has a Harvester resturant and a nice pub called the Ham Farm.
    It's a great way to start a cruise, we had a lovely meal then a few drinks then bed, so this morning we are refreshed and ready for a short drive to Southampton, rather than travelling down on departure day, leaving in the early hours and worrying about traffic etc.
    Anyway that's the end of the Travelodge advert LOL.
    We are looking forward to the trip and seeing friends from previous cruises and people we met last night in the pub, I love the camaraderie you get on cruises.
    Thats all for now :-)
