Chris and I had a terrific day out on Friday on another day filled with clear blue skies and beautiful sunshine. We went to Leicester to visit some friend's at there new shoe showroom and offices in. The offices were quite something, very modern with hundred upon hundred of samples of ladies shoes laid on on the shelves. I wanted every pair and that's no exaggeration !!
We then went for lunch at Kilworth House Hotel in North Kilworth in Leicestershire. What an amazing place situated within 38 acres of beautiful rolling parkland at the end of a long tree lined approach and looking out across its massive estate www.kilworthhouse.co.uk We had our lunch in the Orangery Restaurant which has beautiful views over the estate and quite obviously a hide out for the rich and famous as who was sitting on the next table to us but Bill Wyman and his entourage, how about that !! Lunch was lush, I had a crab and avocado souffle to start and a ceaser salad for my main course and finished it off with some yummy petite fours. With it being such a lovely day we sat outside in the worm sunshine for our coffee watching the cows grazing lazily. I know we will be back to Kenilworth House in the not too different future as they have lots of events at the Hotel which also has its own theatre.
