Back in September 2019, one of our last pre-COVID trips featured a memorable one-night stay at the DeVere Tortworth Court Hotel in Wotten-Under-Edge, just north of Bristol.
Built between 1848 and 1853, the Tudor-style mansion and accompanying 30 acres of grounds and private arboretum are brilliantly patrolled by Lady Grey, the hotel cat. During World War II, the mansion became a naval training base for coding and signals, under the name of HMS Cabbala.
Our brief overnight stay back was topped off by an appearance by the one and only Lady Grey, who graced us with her presence before heading out to secure the perimeter. As you can see, while she did allow us to pet her, she wasn’t all that happy to pose for the camera while on duty.
As she makes her way back to her throne, Lady Grey wishes all her subjects a Happy National Cat Day 2021!
#HappyNationalCatDay2021 to all and to all a good night!
