We arrived at our new hotel for the night, Days Inn; that is located in a Service Area # J19 right off of the M5 about two o'clock. Checked-in and then headed back out to find our adventure for the day. This National Trust Property was recommended to us by Roy and June, our hosts during our stay at Churchdown last weekend. We talked to the lady at the desk in the hotel and she assured us that it was a very short drive from the hotel; but lots of country lanes.
We walked the country road from the Visitor's Center to the house where we enjoyed strolling through at our own pace finding guides in each room to answer questions and add stories about the house and family. The property was purchased by the National Trust in 2002.
Back along the narrow roads to the hotel and then an early dinner at KFC in the Service Center next door. Then we commandeered a table in the lobby and played a game of Hand & Foot. Tomorrow we head to Port Isaac on the western coast about three hours south of Bristol. It's better know to television fans of the BBC as Port Wen, the home of Doc Martin. Hope you enjoyed our story today.
