Just had a cream tea and now looking forward to a drink in the wonderful gardens at Horsted Place Country House Hotel.
We had a wonderful meal at Lombardi’s Restaurant in Chesterfield this evening. Staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Would certainly recommend a visit and will come again next time we are in this area.
Chesterfield has something in common with Pisa but not a leaning tower
We arrived at our hotel, Ringwood Hall, on Friday evening, following an earlier visit to my cousin in Loscoe.
Today, Saturday, we have travelled around the Peak District, after a quick visit to Sheffield. We have been to:
Next we went to Buxton and then down through Bakewell, passing many lovely sites of both countryside and small villages on the way, our final stopping point was Tipton Lock.
Having eaten at the Hotel restaurant last night, tonight we are going into Chesterfield and eating at Lombardis Italian Restaurant.
Squirrels having a cwtch in the sun!
Lovely weather and scenery at Porthcawl this morning.
Lovely walk at Rest Bay this morning – it was very hot too.
Last Saturday we decided to take a drive through Brecon, Builth Wells and Llandrindod Wells and on to Newtown, where we lived for nearly four years in the late 1990’s.
On the way home we came via Llanidloes and Rhayader, stopping off at the Eden Valley Resevoir.
As we crossed the Brecon Beacons the sun shone across the resevoir there too.
Today, we should have flown to Corfu this morning and we should now be settled into our two week holiday at Restia Suites. Instead, due to COVID-19, we went for a drive to Barry Island, via Cardiff Bay, Penarth Marina, Penarth and Swanbridge.
