After our visit to Ludlow we stayed overnight in a farmhouse bed and breakfast. The least said about it the better. The vase of wild flowers in the bedroom was lovely but that is about the only compliment that I can give. As we were leaving, driving out past the broken gate and the lopsided sign, Himself said, "Cold Comfort Farm!" Our room had been very small and tired, very like spending the night in an old caravan!
Never mind, a day with friends was ahead of us.
First we stopped off at Hay-on-Wye, a small Welsh town famous for it's literary festival and it's many bookshops
and a great sense of humour!
Then we drove up a winding country road to join our book group for Sunday lunch
where a jolly time was had by all
greatly helped by good puddings!
In the evening we drove over the bridge into England
I live with Himself (husband) in a former gamekeeper's cottage in the South-West of England.
