Greetings from Weybridge, Surrey! We have just moved, busy with unpacking and settling down. We don’t have the internet connection yet, so my sister-in-law kindly let me connect to the world and share this with you, thank you Judith!:)
First a little, special tribute to the wonderful town of Malmesbury, which we called home for a year. A very special town packed with incredible sights; 12th century Abbey, the Market Cross, the wonderful Abbey Gardens, the lovely Bell Hotel (England’s first hotel!) and many more. Malmesbury deserves a visit for sure, if you are in Wiltshire, our home county in England. Malmesbury will be a very special place for us with our family connection and with the wonderful friends we made there, we very much look forward to keeping in touch and visit every opportunity.
Another special note goes for our favorite spot, the Potting Shed Gastro Pub, 5 minutes to Malmesbury. The atmosphere is very quaint and the food is superb. We had to have lunch there again just before we left – in between packing!- and what a special break it was. The service is impeccable, very welcoming too. Here are a couple of what we enjoyed: Smoked Salmon with pickled cucumber, crushed garlic and ginger salad; Home made lamb, rosemary and redcurrant burger with chips and mint mayonnaise (what a great idea!) and for dessert, blackcurrant and lemon cheesecake with yoghurt and lemon sorbet – what a great, affordable feast!

Within 10 minutes drive from Malmesbury, there is wonderful pubs and eateries, here are a couple of our favorites:
The Vine Tree Pub, The Trouble House, The Chefs Table (by the Michelin Starred Chef) in Tetbury and the Michelin Starred Whatley Manor. A visit to Wiltshire will sure be a delight to all senses, hope we all make it there again!
