Gate House

I’ve found some wifi! Finally had to go shopping with the wife, while she’s doing her stuff I’ve snuck off to Starbucks and found a slow connection to the outside world.
This is our home for the next week, it’s one of the inner gatehouses of Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire. This is our fourth visit to Cholmondeley Castle, on one of our last visits my wife and I were lucky enough to have lunch with Lady Cholmondeley which was really cool, served by a butler and all. For security reasons I had to ask before I could post this so I can’t go into to much more detail. The Castle isn’t open to the public but the grounds are, and are well worth a visit.
