Loved this place! Jill and Ian welcomed us warmly and provided excellent service. The decor reflected the period in which the house was built; creams and white with rich gold and maroon highlights: gracious living. A touch of class with comfort and mod cons included for good measure. Delicious food prepared by the lady of the house, with thought given to special dietary requirements as well.

Sheep were roaming next to us and baaing in the foggy hillsides while crows were cawing and landing on the large stone slabs. The sky was grey and nothing more could have been added to give the atmosphere of Stonehenge a more ominous feeling. I enjoyed staying at the monument for as long as I could before it was time to leave and head back to Leicester.
We left Priddy around 12 noon Sunday 1st November and Charlotte took us to the bus station in Bristol. Leaving Marmite was a little easier this time as she accompanied us to the bus station. Mackerel, the goldfish, decided his time was up a couple of days before, rather sad as he was my last link with students at KOW, and was 5 years old. It was a glorious day, warm and sunny, hugged Charlotte, and off we went on our next adventure! It seems ...
... than 10 pm. We had another lovely couple of hours with Dad and Ena, then the evening with Michelle, Trevor, Yvette and Crystal. Trevor had prepared the tastiest Paella - I think it is the best I've ever eaten. I will have to try to make one. He promised me the recipe - I'll have to remind him. We got back to The Farthings just after 10. The front door key they gave us didn't work and it took about half an hour to rouse someone to let us in! ...
... and enjoyed lunch at Dobbies World where (according to Lauren, our resident Harry Potter expert) the caliber and speed of delivery of the food was all down to the proficiency of the house elves! A fun BBQ at Uncle Steve's house with giant Jenga and a giant Dog Humphrey rounded out a good day for all and the kids had great fun with their littlest cousin Isla again.
With our avid following of the World Cup ...
