‘The Old Red Lion’ – an oldy world bar alongside a modern dining room with extensive views, serving good food. Modern comfortable bedrooms.
Steve’s review: ‘if ever there was a pub in need of a new landlord this is it’. Our initial greeting from the landlady an accusatory ‘How did you get here, I didn’t hear a car pull up’… and the customer service skills didn’t improve.
Another lovely sunny day and a long hill awaited, which was not a good idea after a big breakfast, took us back to the Macmillan Way.
Today was a mixture of woodland walks farmland (no cows or pigs) a golf course and river banks. We passed through many beautiful villages, some busy with Easter events.
Towards the end of a long, but uneventful day we passed into Wiltshire, our fourth county.
Camping tonight is at Stowford Manor Farm, conveniently situated next to Farleigh Hungerford river swimming club, the only river swimming club in England. It is busy when we pass by early evening, but we had a tent to put up and dinner to cook. No lamb.
