Peppers Convent neared perfection as accommodation. The rooms were beautifully apportioned and decorated, as were the communal areas. Breakfast was splendidly generous and varied and the staff were all tremendously helpful and friendly. The slight downside was the wi-fi which refused to work and the minimal number of television channels available in the room, but these are minor complaints about an overall excellent experience.

The boys had a good kick about, and a play on the park. We then hopped into the motorhome for our last leg of a fantastic road trip - 2 hours back to ...
... it would have bent in the hard ground. Di fixed us all some lunch and we settled in planning to have a quiet afternoon watching the grand final and enjoying the view. One of the locals was good enough to come past in a fish truck selling wonderful looking prawns and sea food so we snaffled up some to avoid even having to leave home.
Much like a couple of days ago, the temperature rose close to 30 degrees and then, from seemingly out of ...

Next stop was the chocolate factory. So many fat young women in this shop!!!!!! I bought a chocolate bag for Jaimie next door and some things for mum.
Next stop was Hungerford Hill. While Jess and Dave tasted the wine, I had a look round. They had lots of cookery books - really up market ones too. And then I saw the Laduree sucre one!!! Beautiful - delicate green velvety cover with the trademark gold ...
