Cream Tea at Buckland Manor Hotel



In the heart of the Cotswolds in a small hamlet is Buckland Manor Hotel. We had hired a coach to take us for our tea, so 25 of us set out in good spirits on what had been a very wet day.

The welcome we got was wonderful. the dining room beautifully appointed with views over the countryside!

The scones were delicious, probably the best we had ever had, lots of cream and jam. Biscuits were also served, but we hardly needed them.

We voted this the best ever and booked to go back for our Christmas lunch!

January 21st 2014

Our first meeting in January was well attended with many of our ladies rejoining, so we look forward to a vibrant year, our 95th!!

The speaker was Mike Lovatt on the river Isbourne. Mike had slides and an interesting talk on the river from its start at the top of Cleeve Hill to Evesham. It was of particular interest as it is local, and the writer had just enjoyed a walk down from the top of Cleeve Hill to Winchcombe on Christmas Eve....
