We arrived at the Lighthouse Guesthouse, Tytherington after a quite stressful journey- the road map and Sat Nav having conflicting views. Mum trusted the Road Map; Dad the Sat Nav. I was glad when we finally drove into a gravel courtyard with a Barn converted guesthouse surrounding it. We received a warm welcome and a quick tour around, even though it was getting on for half past eight. Our room was quite basic but clean and comfortable. The whole place had a peaceful vibe, herb teas and decaf coffee on the tea tray in the room. Reading the info booklet, we discovered that all the food was gluten and diary free. We hadn’t expected such a health inspired stay, but we were up for a new experience and as my Mum has Coeliac disease it was great for her that everything was gluten free.

We were recommended a pub for dinner, by the owner, in a village called Nunney. What a magical place it was. It was almost a caricature of itself -You couldn’t have found a more quintessentially british village. The biggest surprise was that right in the centre of this tiny village was the ruins of a striking castle. In the darkening light of dusk it had an almost eerie feel. It was a magical place. Over the road sat a brightfully lit brimming pub – ‘The George’. We enjoyed a simple but perfectly cooked meal. I had prawn and chorizo linguine, Dad a stacked burger and mum Half a chicken and chips. The twinkling fairy lights and warm cosy atmosphere added to what was a lovely meal- Definitely what we needed after our day travelling! We will most certainly be visiting Nunney and The George again.
