In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

Ludlow Castle

We walked around the walls at Ludlow Castle before purchasing some sandwiches which we enjoyed sitting on a bench next to the castle walls. Afterwards we went for a further walk before visiting the excellent bookshop.

We made our home via the Ludlow Food Centre where we hoped to find a slice of cake but that was not to be. Taking the scenic route home we stopped in Much Wenlock  still with cake in mind. We were unsuccessful on our quest so we settled for an ice cream instead.

… followed by fine dining

The afternoon sunshine was glorious but sadly it wasn’t quite warm enough to dine al fresco.

Arley Arboretum

The Arley Arboretum is tucked away in the beautiful countryside of the Worcestershire and Shropshire borders near Bewdley, it boasts more than 300 species of trees in formal and informal plantings and gardens. The collection includes many rare and spectacular domestic and exotic trees. Nestling in the Severn Valley and overlooking the river, it has been growing and maturing in this idyllic setting for two centuries.

There is a beautiful Italianate Garden within the walled Garden which is planted throughout the year. Planted against the walls are a wonderful collection of camellias.

In the woodland garden you will find many more camellias, masses of daffodils, bluebells and trails.
