Despite being the most expensive stay on our tour, it proved to be the mostdisappointing, starting with the green stains in the bathtub, followed up by the waiter trying to charge us for an extra bottle of wine. Impressive location, hotel and views but that's where it stopped

We are now in Orton, don't know where Great Orton comes from, but this is a tiny, picturesque village. We are in a beautiful B&B, The Barnhouse, and it is 3.30 and we are relaxing in the wifi, having showered and washed. And eating scones (Amr is) which are always provided round here.
