A trip to another world…
Whilst my brother and his wife were visiting us from the States, we thought we’d flee London for the weekend. I went on a mad dash to find a place available at short notice that we could reach easily, had something charming and English…and would take the doggie. We ended up booking two nights at the Lamb Inn at Hindon, which managed to tick all the boxes. We nearly got stranded at the train station four miles away when we showed up and there were only two taxis in the entire area, one fully booked, and one who wouldn’t take the dog. We were told we were walking into our death trying to get there on our own as the road was a twisty windy dark country lane. I could only stand their with my mouth hanging open. How can you only go an hour and a half outside of London and be sooooo out there! Thankfully we managed to get to Hindon, which was adorable, all 100 yards of it. If there was any doubt of its charm and quaint-ness we found the town shop for milk and other goods was manned by volunteers and open a few hours a day. I’ll pause while you get your head around that…did I mention that we travelled back in time as well. Oh I love the English countryside!
P.S. We made this trip thinking we were revisiting the Cotswolds. In the car to the Inn, David mentioned how much we loved the Cotswolds area. The driver replied ‘oh so when are you going there?’ Ughm…now? Aren’t we there? Apparently not.
thanks to risycle for the photo as we forgot our camera!
