Saturday 16th July 2016
It was the morning of my three-hour drive down to Cornwall and my four-day escape. I’d left later than planned, having made sure that everything was packed and prepared sandwiches for the day. Still, I hoped to be able to avoid the worst of the inevitable southbound traffic.
I chose Lanhydrock, with its grand house and estate, as a convenient ‘pit-stop’ to ease my journey and celebrate the end of all motorway driving, for at least three days.
