2008 Holiday Part 6 - England South West & Wales

Cornish Cydar Farm in Cornwall.

This was a working Cyder Farm where they produce Cyder and Jams. It was free to get in but for a few pounds you can go on a tour of the farm.

They also sold the local ice cream. Little one and Hubby shared a Raspberry and Clotted cream one.

On our way to the Cotswolds we stopped at Bath...

The Roman Baths and Pump House

For 50p you can try the spring water that supply the water in the Roman Baths. The water was warm and tasted and smelled of sulphur. I didn't like it but at least I can say that I had some water from the Roman Baths.

Another stop on the way to the Cotswold was Chedder, in Somerset.
Unfortunately there is now only one company in Cheddar that make Cheddar. Cheddar Cheese is a semi hard, sharp tasting cheese. Cheddar is the most popular cheese in England today.

Our next stop over was Cheltenham, in the Cotswolds. We were getting tired of sandwiches and chips so we decided to have Indian for dinner one night. We found this restaurant on the main street from the town centre to our cottage. Kings Balti Palace.

We had Chicken Korma, Lamb Vindaloo ( which made Hubby sweat as it's a lot hotter than they make here at home), bombay aloo (potatoes), pilau rice, naan and poppadoms.

Tintern Abbey, Tintern, Wales.

Bon Appetite,
