Quite possibly the most spectacular Guild Hall I have ever seen, in Lavenham Suffolk…
Just popping back to Cornwall today, to take you to the Old Post Office in Tintagel… This traditional Cornish Longhouse started off life some 600 years ago as a Manor house here. You can’t really miss it in thanks to a couple of reasons, its distinctive wavy roof caused by gentle subsidence, and the […]
We popped back to our old neck of the woods last weekend to catch up with friends and family… I managed to time a walk over the bridge to dinner with the sun just beginning to go down – you can’t beat a Richmond sunset. I love this part of London.

It is up there as a favourite holiday destination for the staycationers amongst us for so many reasons… Even Mr R became misty eyed when someone suggested Cornwall after a family discussion about […]
A scene from a half term break in Cornwall… Will be back to tell you about it shortly.
