    "First trip to London, Cotswold Way, Bath and Stratford-upon-Avon was absolutely wonderful! Our stay in Stratford at Ambleside was a perfect way start our trip. The flower garden at the front door was awash with color and so welcoming! Peter was a perfectly charming host, answered our questions and provided information about the area. Our double room with bath was nicely decorated, twin beds were comfortable and the night-time was quiet! Peter suggested several restaurants for dinner and even gave us a 10% off coupon for the one we chose. Ruth served a wonderful, filling breakfast and we enjoyed a few stories from Peter before we checked out. We really appreciated Ambleside's willingness to book us for one night on a weekend. Ambleside is about a 12 minute walk from the train station and 10 minutes to the theater. This was our first experience staying at a B & B and we thoroughly enjoyed Peter and Ruth's hospitality! ."

    ... butterflies, bees and birds were plentiful and varied. Some of the butterflies insisted on landing on the path in front of us so we had to try to avoid standing on them; they must have had a death wish! One small tortoiseshell butterfly led us along the path for a good while, seeming to land for us to catch up before leading us on again.
    One of the plans for the day was to treat ourselves to fish and chips on the sea front, so on our return ...

    ... by our return along the river to Burnsall bridge and a drive back to the Abbey. The sat nav has had an interesting few days and on the way home took us back on a slightly different route. The first concern was that the 'narrow road' sign was not accompanied by the usual addition of 'with passing places'. The road was not much wider than the car, and the entrances into fields looked much the same ...

    ... managed to get the GPS going, and that is an absolute bonus, because it got us out of London without any problem at all! Sooo happy about that. :-)

    Our first stop was Cambridge. I think I wanted to see Cambridge because we got to see Oxford, so why not. It is kind of on the way to York anyway, so why not. It was actually a quite pretty town, in the parts that we got to see. We didn't really have ...

    ... of rain showers arrived so we used the conservatory as a shelter before walking under the umbrella around the formal gardens. The gardens were extensive and the area included a bird hide and a walk next to the pasture with meadow flowers as the main feature.
    The Hall was built in the late 18th century as a family house and was used as such until the middle of the last century. In 1941 it was used ...

    ... and there was only one explanatory poster on the myth vs reality (bent spine yes, limp no, withered arm no.) I get too confused between all the Edwards, Richards and Henrys for the background information to make sense. In the War of the Roses, I never know which rose is white and which is red, or whether the Yorks or the Lancastrians were the goodies or the baddies, and which side was which claimant on. Now I know York = white and Lancaster = ...
