So. The forecast was awful across the UK. Cheap flights weren't. And the thought of driving far in the car when I drive so much anyway was just not appetising.
So we got in the car and decided that we would drive for a maximum of 2 hours and see where we got to. Berwick upon Tweed. England (although I didn't know that Berwick was in England until somebody told me so.) Fabulous little town with excellent shops, a big wall and a wonderful restaurant with rooms that made us feel like we were luxuriating in luxury. Sallyport holds a prestigious gold award and it's well deserved. Really, really well deserved.
