Visited the Wild Boar Hotel earlier today to celebrate Mothering Sunday for afternoon tea with my daughter. I am not a sweet person, so this afternoon was just perfect for me.

It was a large room with windows running down one side. the bathroom was lovely with a large free standing copper tub - I was lucky in that it rained one afternoon, so the tub was filled, curtains opened, watched the rain beating on the window - BLISS.
