A not-so-wel­come break

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

FOR YEARS, we have used Na­tional Trust houses as our mo­tor­way ser­vice sta­tions (‘How to be a happy mo­torist’, Oc­to­ber 17). How­ever, in­creas­ingly, the Trust has been con­found­ing this source of rev­enue by mov­ing car parks far from the house or re­fresh­ment lo­ca­tions.

You men­tion Dyrham Park (above) near Bris­tol, which we’ve used many times—but, now, the car park is next to the east­ern bound­ary and the dreary bus ride takes so long that the stopover isn’t prac­ti­cal. Fur­ther, Dyrham has moved its cafe from the or­angery to a dis­mal room in the ser­vice yard.

Come on Na­tional Trust, COUN­TRY LIFE is quite right—re­spond and rise to the op­por­tu­ni­ties! Philip Proc­tor, Dorset
