Out & About

There are Castles and Manors, Cathedrals and Abbeys and Gardens to take your breath away!   There are also the hills to walk or ride, to draw you out, to slow you down, to bring you back to a blazing fire and tea in winter or a lie in the garden on a hot Summer's day!

Here are some suggestions of what is available in the area.  More complete information may be found at Pepper Cottage and online.
