Faith and Jim's place is amazing. Jim works as a garderner for a lord (yes, as in the ones that leap when it's Christmas time), and they rent one of his cottages. The views are unbelievable. I'm really running out of superlatives here, so have a look at the pics and you'll see what I mean
Then off to Steve Pope's house in Wales. Another cottage - this one built in 1665. Am struggling to comprehend the history of these places - this cottage was built long before Australia was even discovered by the Western world. Went for a walk up over the hills and looked down on the green fields, sheep and forests. The sheep cracked me up - baa-ing noise they make sounds so fake, like someones just standing behind them making the noise.
Headed off for a massive drive back to London (for some reason, the Brits love to close their motorways down, then not provide directions of how the hell to get where you want to go) and crashed out at Mazza's and Steves, all ready for a trip to Brighton.
