More on our travels

We left Cornwall and decided to head for Wells as a stop off point on our way to Gloucestershire. It seems such a peaceful place but appearances can of course be deceptive, and we were very polite indeed to the landlord and landlady at The Crown just in case they considered us to be undesirables. Actually, the success of Hot Fuzz which for everyone who has not got the first idea what I am on about was filmed in Wells, seems to have attracted lots of lovies to the town. We sat across from three elderly actresses whilst we had lunch and they had brandies. Wish I could remember what they had all been in but....

Then we went on to the hotel we had booked through Travel Zoo. I was a bit paranoid about this as it had 'Too Good To Be True' written all over it. This hotel, dinner bed and breakfast for £79.00....between us. On our way there I managed to convince myself it was going to turn out to mean £79.00 each, but it did not mean that. What it did mean was that we spent our last night away in the most luxurious hotel we had ever stayed in, complete with enormous corner bath (my personal highlight!) and the most wonderful meal with meat that presumably tasted like all meat used to taste before modern day mass farming methods. Thank you Travel Zoo (who were also the source of our hotel in Cornwall.

God, havent stayed at the Crown for donkey's. It was always my focal point when travelling the West Country, and even that single four poster bed was a luxury. Must take Liz there before the end of the year, (but not the single four poster of course).
