Yesterday the kids packed up and headed off to a 5 day sports camp in Berry. It was the first time – though Amy had been with school earlier in the year and very keen to go back.
A quick 45 mins later we had arrived. The girls got checked in and headed off to their rooms, then to play games. I hope they have a wonderful time. It sure will be quiet at home.
I’ve been wanting to visit the Berry Tea Shop for ages so took the opportunity since I was there. Lovely shop.
I didn’t actually buy anything (having just got all that stuff from Whittards) but they had a lovely range. All the products are around the shop and the middle is chairs and table where you can have tea and cake. Would have done so if I hadn’t been on my own (and just drank a big tea in the car on the way down). Next time for sure.
This is a part of Berry I hadn’t been too before (we usually just do the main street) and there was so many lovely shops. I had a lovely time wandering around, browsing, and buying, on my own :-).
And then there Sew and Tell.
Oh, my goodness – sewing, knitting, crochet, every craft you can think of. You be proud of me – I bought no wool or material :-). And I nearly didn’t go in because the sign said home of embroidery. So glad I did.
And at the back there was the cutest little gift shop.
I seriously think this might be THE best shop I’ve ever been in. I could happily have bought everything. And the range of books – oh, my! I bought a few gifts and just a few things for myself – a basket to keep my knitting in, a new crochet hook and a UK Vegetarian cookbook.
I will DEFINITELY be coming here again …. by myself :-).
I had a lovely time exploring Berry and discovering lots of new shops. I bought a veggie pastie from the bakery which I enjoyed for lunch on the drive home. It really is a beautiful part of the world and I’m going to add it to list of potential places to buy a farm.
