I liked Pauntley because it was a place I would never have visited otherwise, being so far off the beaten track. I enjoy exploring new places so it was good for me. It was lovely quiet place to stay. There is a little nature reserve down the hill which afforded a pleasant walk.
I was offered an evening meal prior to arrival and said 'no', but when I changed my mind on arrival it was no bother at all, which helped me as I was tired from a day of travelling and not keen to venture out again.
