“Mind the step” she said. We spent a night in the Rhydspence Inn a few miles from Hay-on-Wye. It’s a 14th century inn with lovely views over the countryside to England, the other side of the river Wye.
Apparently people in the 14th century were a tad shorter than today. So, heeding the “mind the step” warning as we entered our room, I neglected to look up, only doing so when I walked into the door lintel. Not content to do it once, I had several more reminders that the door frame was only 5′ 6″ tall. But I didn’t once trip over the step.
Our bedroom was magnificent, all oak beams and a 4-poster bed.
