Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Bobjs for the Highclere Castle visit that I won as we finally got around to visiting yesterday. It was a cracking day out and the castle itself is something else with an amazing array of rooms and the library is out of this world. There was a whole section of hunting, stalking and shooting books that must date back to the 19th century, and I could just see myself sat by the large fireplace in my onesie smoking a gert big cigar sipping on a glass of the finest brandy, while Mrs Stratts relaxed in the drawing room darning my socks!!
The goody bag crammed full of gifts left for us at the ticket office was a lovely surprise too and I especially like my 'His Lordship' mug and placemat!!
It was a pleasure to meet you Bob, thanks again and hopefully next time we will be able to get out for a pint or two (on me of course!!)
All the best,
