My fear of driving seems to have been thoroughly cured as only a couple of weeks after my Warminster/Chipping Sodbury escapade I found myself back behind the wheel heading over to Long Melford in Suffolk une seule! This time the lure at the end of the long drive was a visit to the Rosehip Barn near Thorpe Morieux and the Rosehip shop in Long Melford.
I arrived at the barn not long after the opening time and after shakily exiting my car, was greeted by Simon with the offer of a lovely hot cup of coffee or tea and a delicious almond bun-like confection. That almost made the trip worth it alone, but to enjoy it all in a vintage, rustic French country barn with wood burner was the icing on the cake (or in this case bun!)
After a couple more purchases (more about these in another post!) I decided to head home - but I definitely hope to be visiting the Rosehip Barn and shop again in the New Year!
