Mill House Residents enjoy trip out to Lapstone

Mill House residents enjoyed a trip out on 21st February 2017 to Lapstone which is located just around the corner from our home in Chipping Campden.

Maureen, Mary, Audrey and Joan accompanied by our Activity Coordinator, Dominika , Senior Maintenance Officer, Maciek and one of our team of volunteers, Wendy all got on our mini bus after lunch about 2:30 pm.

The weather was quite mild for this time of year and it wasn’t too cold so everyone was in a very good mood and eagerly looking forward to their outing.

Maciek drove the mini bus to our destination and although it wasn’t a long trip, we all had a chance to look out at the beautiful Cotswold views with the rolling hills and lots of sheep around.

Lapstone is set in a beautiful countryside location with stunning, panoramic views and when we first arrived there, we decided the trip would not be complete without a quick look at the shop which is in an 18th-century Cotswold stone barn embracing a central courtyard. The building itself has overarching beams of the old barn which makes it very unique and full of character and we all agreed what beautiful items they sell there.

After a little retail therapy, it was time for our afternoon tea and we went to the Lapstone coffee shop where we were kindly served by one of the coffee shop ladies. What a warm and kind atmosphere we experienced there and the real fire was amazing and made for a very cosy atmosphere.  Everyone was really relaxed and had a nice time. Wendy said she comes here very often with her family when they take her out and she knows the place very well. We will definitely be back there soon.

At Mill House care home in Chipping Campden we deliver residential, nursing and dementia care for up to 45 elderly residents in a friendly and supportive environment.
