They hadn't enjoyed Carlisle Castle as much as they'd hoped, so they went in search of another castle and visited the much more impressive Castle Howard, said to be Yorkshire's finest stately home and gardens. And it didn't disappoint! Only 15 miles north of York, Castle Howard is a private residence, the home of the Carlisle branch of the Howard family for more than 300 years.
Sadly no pics though - think they were having too much of a good time!
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
