More Sampling of Food While Travelling

Of course i also sampled cream teas as we travelled across the English and Welsh countryside.
So far my vote goes to the cream tea in the Old Stables Tea Rooms in a small village in the foothills of the Welsh Black Mountains, Hay on Wye.

They have won many awards with their own fresh clotted cream, yeast unbleached flour scones warm from the oven when you order, rose-flavoured strawberry jam (all ingredients from their garden and their father's garden), and a delicious blended tea, all served on a piece of slate.
But i will not decide on my favourite cream tea until we have explored the Devon coast next year when we return for my graduating exhibition.

Each village has a bakery or two with a bow or glassed window where they display that morning's baking. All very tempting.

What i couldn't resist was a cone of vanilla-flavoured sheep's milk ice cream - that's the cone on the left. It was delicious. We sat out in a market square with our backs to a 700 year old church wall and watched village life pass by while licking.
