One delicious meal we had while in England visiting our friends (yet another delicious meal we had) was at a restaurant called The Moat Shed.
Siena and Mac rode their bikes, because it wasn’t too far from their house.
When we arrived, we saw so much nature, so much beauty and again, so much history.
It is one of only two double moated historic site, from somewhere between the 1250 and 1350. Moated sites were built throughout England in the medical times, and vary in sizes and forms. They are believe they were built to show status more than for defense.
They don’t know the kind of building that was built on this site, but there is still research being done. It is a moat within another large moated enclosure. The building set in the middle of the moat was made out of wood from the forest of this area, that is why it no longer exists.
We played Jenga with these huge pieces of wood. That was fun!But look at this picture. I am not sure why there is a wood piece flying in the air. Lucas is no so sure about it… it looks funny though, as if it would have come out all on its own… doesn’t it?
After playing outside, we headed indoors. What a fun and beautiful place. I loved it! And all the details were great. like this trunk with blankets to borrow if you were sitting outside. There were shovels as curtain rods. The bathroom had other fun decorating surprises and something I thought was a great idea. Sharing the sink to wash your hands, from both men and women’s bathroom. Really! Do we need sinks in both bathrooms?
But why we came for. Lunch.
But yes. The food so good and the special touches and details so beautiful and simple, naturally done. I loved it!
