A holiday in England isn’t complete without some wet weather. We woke up on the Sunday morning of our break in Canterbury to a downpour which lasted until lunchtime. However, when the last of the rain disappeared, the clouds parted and we were treated to a warm afternoon.
We fancied cream tea and I suggested Perry Court Farm, which has a lovely little tea shop and farm shop. We underestimated the drive and got there 30 minutes before closing time! Still, it was worth the drive, as we feasted on delicious scones topped with jam and clotted cream and freshly brewed tea.
Look at this delicious carrot cake. The staff were very friendly and encouraged us to take our time finishing our tea as they tidied up around us.
The bear washed down her scone with a big glass of milk.
Look at this lovely row of apple trees on the farm.
We drove back to Canterbury and we had to stop and admire the tulips in full bloom.
Just before nightfall, we drove to Dover to see the Dover Castle.
Fog had rolled in by the time we drove into Dover town to catch a glimpse of the White Cliffs.
The bear loved the boats and the harbour.
We all slept well that night and felt refreshed for the drive back home to London. A lovely mini-break had. Thank you Canterbury, we’ll be back someday soon.
