We made good time so, as Pete had a church he wished to visit, we had a slight detour to visit St Marys at Great Brington. The views from the church ground were pretty good too!
As we arrived, so did the Church Warden so we had a guided tour - which was great!
OK so onto Canons Ashby. One reason for a visit is that this National Trust property was third in the 'Best National Trust Cafes.. so that's good enough reason for us,
We arrived and had a cuppa - accompanied by Victoria Sponge - rather lovely and Carrot Cake... this was Carrot Cake with a difference and probably the best I've had... wonderful!! Big smile!
Then a quick stroll around whilst waiting for the guided tour of the house.
Nonetheless, a lovely day out.. with excellent cake and sunshine!! And the company wasn't bad either :D
The diet has been suspended for the day!
