Whilst Mr Ben and Miss Fleur are being totally spoiled and cosseted at home by Aunty June, Mr B and I are spending two weeks here in the UK exploring the beautiful county of Herefordshire, famous for its Historic Black and White villages.
Shepherds Rest at Hill Farm a small, cosy cottage for two, high on a hill in the village of Much Marcle situated close to the market town of Ledbury, is our base this week.
We are surrounded by wide open fields, it's like being at home but with sheep not cows, it is a working farm after all.
All around are apple orchards and the village is home to Westons Cider established in 1880 and still making cider the traditional way.
|Market House, Ledbury.|
Originally it was the towns grain store and it is still used for council meetings.
It was completed in 1653 by John Abel, the "Kings Carpenter".
Tomorrow we're off to visit Hampton Court Castle and Gardens for the British Red Cross Great Spring Gardening Event, stay tuned for pix!
