The end of term was completely chaotic... then suddenly we were on holiday, which felt very weird really. It was really hard to slow down this time when everything had been so manic.
Anyway, early on Saturday morning we drove over to Ludlow. We had decided to do something completely different this holiday and spent one night a 'posh' hotel/restaurant in the town. I found Dinham Lodge Hotel on Booking.com. It's postal address is "By the Castle, Ludlow" (which sounded pretty 'Downton' and I couldn't resist it..!)
Our room had a lovely bay window over-looking the gardens and the Teme river valley..
The bed was very grand -with rather a 'film set' look...
(It was also very comfortable)
This was the view of Ludlow Castle from the window by Reception..
And this was the lounge (aka 'The Drawing Room'!)...
The weather was seriously grim (cold and wet) but we managed to wander round the town and try out some of the 'foodie stops'. In the evening we had an amazing meal, based on another Trip Advisor top tip. I wish that I'd been organised enough to take my camera, but you'll have to take my word for the fact that the Clotted Cream and Lemon Curd mousse was out of this world!!
There's lots going on over here (both good and bad) which seems to be keeping me from my normal blogging routine at the moment. I hope that I will be able to catch up with you all properly over the next twenty-four hours, and have time to post a little more about the weekend and other things. In the meanwhile, I hope that everyone is well and having a good week.
