We packed up this morning in the sunshine and said our good-bye's. Ironically we even got to meet some more Murviites, almost saying Hello and Goodbye in the same sentence.

We were not sure about it and could not make our minds up if this 'distressed' idea really worked. There are also extensive grounds that can be explored, which we may return to another day.
We had lunch there as well and decided to make this the main meal of the day. I had a venison stew, with meat from the estate. Loads of it and really tasty - just like a strong beef flavour. A bit of focaccia bread was also included to mop up the gravy. Ruth had a chicken dish that was also very tasty. The building was a renovated stable type place - very well restored and certainly not in keeping with the rest of the buildings.
We left Calke at about 2.00pm and were home for 3.45pm
