On a sunny Monday morning whilst everyone was driving to work, we were smugly packing a suitcase ready for a few days away. Only a couple of hours drive from Shaftesbury sits Dunster in Somerset, and dominating the scenery sits Dunster Castle.
In a relatively small, quiet town sits a giant in culinary delights
A planned trip to Exmoor for Esras birthday and a chance sighting of an English Heritage brown sign at the side of the road. That is the situation which led us to discover Cleeve Abbey.
Just the other side of the Dorset border, stepping into Somerset sits the town of Frome. If you want to appear in ‘the know’ although spelled Frome it is pronounced Froom, I was ably corrected by my hairdresser Sam when I told her where I was planning to go.
Its the first of April, do you know what that means? It means that all those monuments, castles and stately homes having closed for the winter, open again today..YAY!
