Large hotel by the canal and with a lovely lake. The restaurant was very formal and not what we had expected. The food was very good however and the staff very kind. The room service was good and funny too as Steve still being in his Lycra hid in the bathroom when his 3rd evening meal arrived.

We basically snuck in the back entrance, we passed by a closed booth that said we had to go to another reception to buy a ticket costing £15 each. We headed off towards where we had to pay but stopped off at the butterfly garden where Carrie spent ages trying to get a ...
Long day to make up some distance. Excitement of the day was the right turn on to the Staffordshire and Worcester Canal. Another day another canal! Also, crossed on, not one but two aquueducts. One over the Trent and another over the Sow. We see a lot of herons but one was bold as brass and didn't fly away on our approach. The bird was fishing the Tent from the aqueduct! Cool or what?
Flat water meadows dominated but oh so peaceful. Every kind of bird you can imagine both on ...
