Getting from Point A to Point B is more fun if you have shorter driving times and lots of smaller a’s, b’s and c’s along the route. It also helps us to take more breaks when we are driving a different traffic pattern than we are used to ( driving on the left instead of on the right) and also when we are not familiar with roads and the signs. And, last but not least, we are on vacation, no hurry! We’ll get there when we get there! Following these rules, we left Heathrow and started our journey to Cornwall with a lot of stops along the way. We had visited Stourhead, which I wrote about for Thursday Doors HERE and the Tintinhull House Gardens, before we made out way to Yeovil, to stay at the Ash Manor House. Yeovil is a smallish village with just one main street and Ash House is located right on that main street in a residential neighborhood. Well, there might have been more to Yeovil had I driven further, but by this time I was tired and ready for a break…… not more explorations….. Ash Manor was easy to find and even better; had plenty of parking on the premises. Let’s go in……
Ash House is not a big hotel. It is more like a largish B&B with just 19 rooms…..here is what the lobby looked like……..
I liked the old photograph on the lobby wall…..It was the Lady of the Manor in her carriage from days gone past……..
Our window view…….a nice quiet village…….
The convenient thing about Ash Manor; we didn’t have to leave the premises to eat (the dining areas were only for guests)…………This is probably the only poppy-red dining room, I have ever eaten in!
This was what I ordered…….very fresh and tasty! How can you go wrong with a meat, potato and vegetable dish? You can’t………I liked the cracker triangle garnish too!
The dessert was an assortment, a little of everything ………nothing on here I don’t like! The cocoa powder frog was the hit on this plate and I liked him so much I didn’t want to dip anything in him to mess up his looks!
In the morning, after our night’s stay, we ate breakfast here in the breakfast dining area, overlooking the garden……….
and a beautiful little garden it was too!
I wanted to feature Ash Manor House to show you, one don’t always have to try exotic foods or expensive restaurants to enjoy a stay……Ash Manor House was the perfect spot for “Along the Way!”
