The room was large, bright and airy with a large bathroom. We were pleased to find we had bedside reading lights -- a bonus! The trouble came when we wanted to get to sleep about 10:30 p.m. and found that the room had paper thin walls! Someone nearby had their TV on until after midnight and then just whe we thought we could get to sleep the snoring started. It was a disaster! Doors banging, phones pinging, and just noise, noise, noise.

Breakfast at Salamander was between 8:00 and 9:00. No exceptions. We decided to drop our hire car off early which worked well, they were open at 8, and we were back at the Guest House very soon after. Pascal was in good form and ensured the ice was broken. Guests were introduced and little witticisms made about each - just to get the conversation …
... to enjoy while we waited. Eric was receiving stressful emails and needed many Crown Royals to calm him, thank God for Canadian whiskey! When we got on the plane an entire section of business class was not occupied due to a lightening storm causing a missed connection, so Eric was able to move to the pod behind mine. The flight was filled with delicious wines (Chilean for me and French for Eric), steak dinners, and peach ...

It was not sweet and had not been marinated and all I could taste was sheep shed flavour. The owner came over and checked on us and we had a wee chat about lamb and he said it was new season local lamb leg they boned out and trimmed. That it may be, but it was still rubbish .... Ah well you take the good with the bad eh?
... on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, Upper and Lower Slaughter, Snowshill, Stanton and Snowsill and the countryside in between was nothing but stunning.
The next day summer was over! Grey skies, showers and cooler temps but not enough to deter us from another day of exploration. A host of more pretty villages occupied us for the day - Burford, Swinbrook, Bibury, Cirencester (where we had coffee at Keith's Tea House), then a really pretty backroad route ...
... Olimpick Games
So after a busy afternoon trying to find places to put things – and as we’re on a strict budget, we’re having to be creative with empty toaster boxes, plastic food trays and suchlike – we felt ready to carve a pathway through empty boxes, find the front door and head up Dover Hill to discover what these Olimpicks were all about.
One can’t expect perfection, so although the weather ...
