A little trip to Somerset, along the A303 we came across Stonehenge, no surprises there. But we did have a time slot to go and see the stones.
On the way home from Somerset, we stopped off at Stourhead. I have always wanted to visit this National Trust place, but never stopped because once I start to head home, I don’t want to stop. This time though we stopped and so glad we did. There is a lot more here than I first thought. We didn’t get into the house, as we ran out of time, but the gardens… Wow!
Today we went to a little (and I mean little) village called Castle Combe. Here is appears that time has stood still for the last 500 years. In 1962 this village was voted ‘the prettiest villiage in England’. I can see why. It is embedded within the Cotswolds, and lies close to Bath. It is a lovely idyllic village with a river running through it (Bybrook).It wasn’t a nice sunny day, instead overcast, and it tried to rain on us a couple of times, so most of the skys will look a bit grey.
