Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

The Swan at Streatley

A few weeks ago I took my daughter to see some of the places I have enjoyed during my Thames path walk. I chose to stay at the Swan at Streatley. I had admired it on one of my walks and was lucky to get a very reasonable offer of a weekend break.

View of the hotel from the garden.

 Views from the bedroom window.
 The hotel rests on the bank of the river Thames

 We had a wonderful weekend there with restful walks along the river during the day and some delicious food and wine in the evening.


  1. The word idyllic comes immediately to my mind.

  2. What a treasure .... and a special time shared with your daughter.

  3. Beautiful place! And looks like perfect weather for a walk along the Thames! :o)
