So if any of you consider visiting our backyard at Veddw (shameless self promotion once more) you’ll be happy to know that Chipping Campden is just one and a half hours away, by way of stunning English countryside. And it included a Roman Street, which all the time pleases me.

Effectively, it has Vegetation in Doorways for a begin, embellishing an historic and beautiful city. Within the vacationer workplace we discovered a plan which took us on a stroll around the city, and I’ll share among the highlights with you.

The exit from our lodge seemed like this:
