Holiday 2023 day 8: Boscobel House

We left the cottage early and reunited with Chas and Wurzel within the hour. I’m not sure who was more delighted to see the other!

We then found the smallest house in Britain. Incredible to believe that anyone ever lived here! Our next visit was to Plas Mawr, […]
