Touring the British Isles
A new and exciting venture for me which proved to be amazingly rewarding as well as great fun. My lovely American clients could not have been more interested, charming and fun.
I had to sharpen up on British history, geology and good pubs! We journeyed from Edinburgh to the Scilly Isles, through the slate villages of the Lake District to the slate cottages of Delabole, checked out the literary haunts of teh Brontes at Haworth in the Yorkshire Dales, visited Jane Austen’s pretty cottage and the magnificent cathedrals of York, Winchester and Salisbury. Brighton Pavillion was classy, the Pier less so and the Tresco cottage a delightful rest at the end.
Would I do it again: yes with such lovely people
What did I enjoy the most? being reminded of our stunning unspoilt countryside
What did I not like: the Endsleigh Hotel – v v disappointing
TOP TIP: good map, better than a satnav!
