Where I stayed

Exmoor Forest

We had a stop over on the way to Penzance from Timsbury. It is a fair drive, so we would stop in this little crossroads in Exmoor Forest. The drive through the forest is beautiful with valleys and hills. I hate to sound complacent but this seems to be just normal for England. I like to check out the houses and these are back to the stone houses that have lots of character. No cookie cutter surveys here!

We stop in a place call Watchet for lunch. Another quaint harbour village on the coast. These little villages have roads that weave in and out of each other and little alley ways to get through to houses or other roads. It is easy to see where the 'cow paths' were because that is where they put the roads and where the houses were built. Lunch was great, in a little pub, where I had the jacket potatoe with mayo and tuna. We walk down by the water and are just amazed that these little villages survive.

Our B&B was a charming house in Wheddon Cross. It was originally built as a tailor's shop but has been converted to a B&B. Now most of the places we have stayed at are Victorian houses, this one was Edwardian. The difference being that Edwardian is less fussy and more plain. I say plain but it was anything but. The halls were wide, the ceilings high and the rooms large. The lounge was a place where you could sit and read, do a puzzle, play a game or knit. Our hosts even lit a fire for us in the evening to add to the character of the house.

The next day we headed through the Dartmoor Forest. These have the moors going over the hills and are very sparse. Once again the scenery is wonderful and I don't know what we will do back in Hamilton. Ah well we will enjoy it while we can.
