Two Burghley Blokes

…and two gorgeous gals!

We met up with Sandra & Dennis today. Having previously met them on their turf in Hull back in May, today, it was our turn to give them a taste of our neck of the woods – and so we met in Stamford. We arrived around 9.40 and they arrived just after us – and just two car-park spaces along!

Brekkie!
First stop was the short walk to The Crown Hotel for one of their legendary brekkies and then a quick mooch around the town.

Next, it was off to Burghley House (that we haven’t been to since August last year) for a look round the House and Gardens…

We then stopped of at The Orangery for a small bite to eat, before heading for the Garden of Surprises and then a walk round the Sculpture Garden.

As things turned out, it was perfect timing because as we finished our walk the rain came. It was now just after 3 and so we said our goodbyes and Dennis & Sandra headed northwards home.

It’s been a great day – the weather could have been a tad warmer and drier, but it didn’t stop us enjoying our tour of lovely Stamford!
