On a recent visit to York, my companion and I had many a fine wander round – we had no particular plan, just to see as much of the city as we could in 3 days. We were booked into a hotel from a chain of them – this one was conveniently placed for buses into the city and the hotel made sure we knew how to get our ‘rover’ tickets to use the buses to the max. We had a fab time, meandering around the city walls, in and out of the low slung ‘Shambles’, gawping in the windows of the incredibly expensive shops.
The highlight though was visiting a couple of heritage properties – that feeling of belonging and being at one with the furnishings and decor. The oak that is so carefully and lovingly cared for has seen so much life before now. Nothing makes us feel richly proud of our heritage than a jolly good oak filled house!
