Blue Bell hotel, Burton Agnes: turns out they not only have a number of ground floor rooms but at least one is disability equipped and the others are pet-friendly so how’s that for getting it right?
Sussex to Newcastle – nine hours on foul, invisible roads with massive trucks and fogged up mirrors. Newcastle to Yorkshire – three hours, same performance. Yorkshire to Sussex – another nine hours, some of them in a blizzard and others idling away on the M25 in second gear. For entertainment, an unlit van stationary in lane 4 of several near Heathrow. Try pulling out round that when no one else can see it and they wouldn’t much care if they could!
Extended tweet! More to say about this trip. Back when I can say it without spitting!
