Our Coombe Mill Break – Day 8 (Departure)

Today we leave Coombe Mill.

We have had a lovely time here.Its been such a peaceful time. Coombe Mill is in such gorgeous surroundings. All you hear is the sounds of the birds and the running river. Occasionally you’d hear the donkey making its “Eee-Orrr” from across the way.

We checked out just before 10am. We had had heard of a devastating crash on the M5, which was the route we needed to go. They had shut part of the motorway off, so we had to find an alternative route.

Fiona recommended the Fleet Air Arm Museum as a stop off on the way back. P is a fan of military aircraft so we decided to stop of. It also breaks up a very long journey.

We headed down the A30 all the way to the museum. It didn’t take too long to get there. We spent a fair few hours looking around the planes, although J and K were more interested in when could they visit the shop.

It is definitely a place we would go back to. Even I found it interesting, and I’m not that big a fan!

We decided to take the A30/A303 home. This route took us right past Stonehenge. I decided to see if I could take a picture with my iPhone as we drove past.

This is what I captured:

I just want to say a HUGE Thank You to Fiona, Farmer Nick, their family and everyone at Coombe Mill who made our mini vacation a lovely experience. Coombe Mill truly is a beautiful place to visit and we are sad to leave. Back to the hustle and bustle that comes with living near the city. Back to work and back to school. Back to the manic and chaos that is our lives…… until next time!!
