We strolled through Lacock and Castle Combe, and Daniel pointed out both little-known and well known sites. He even had movie clips so we could appreciate how compelling the areas were as true works of art and imagination. Of course, the most fun was Cream Tea with Karen at her gorgeous old farmhouse. The clotted cream was otherworldly good and her homemade plum jam was perfect. Highly recommended! One of the best parts of our two-week trip to southwest England. Thank you, Daniel!!!"..."
