Travelling to the North of England for a gold wedding celebration when you live in a sunny land takes a lot of courage. Cold weather is not for me or my family! This time as we made our way down from Berwick to Chester the sun shone, the birds sung and the grey English sky was blue. It was warm in fact as warm as home! Chester greeted us in full bloom with enough flowing of air to make it just right. Trees everywhere and lovely Roman sites too.
The Mill Hotel & Spa was so unexpected too. Built on both sides of the canal and joined by a bridge it was rather captivating. Our room was big for UK standard and furnished with some nice pieces of antiques but extremely comfortable offering all the conveniences. In fact we were greeted not only with a fine bouquet of flowers but also fruits and a bottle of champagne!
A holiday on its own - we went on a Queen Mary deluxe six course dinner which was an experience on its own with the 'ship's' Capt receiving us with whistles and all. Excellent service drinks and food all inclusive in the dinner price. A Roman tea party river cruise another unique experience with rather a handsome and charming Roman soldier imparting stories of those bygone days. Dinner dances, discos everything you want. I am not a lover of sausages and mash but when I finally ventured to taste I ate two of the three 'bangers' and what delicious mash mixed with cabagge and bacon as well as cheese! As you can see, food was excellent. I have hardly ever seen my husband eat so much and so well away from home!
As for my daughter and I we had a ball at the spa enjoying quite a number of beauty treatment and at very good price too. Since we had hired a car we were able to travel to nearby Wales which was also quite a unique experience. Close to shopping outlets it was a delight. We were lucky to be able to attend the Horse Races too A place I can fully recommend and so central too. The week we had there went far too quickly.
