The Trip was enjoyable but not out of the ordinary.
We did stop at places I would not usually visit like the cheese shop.
It would have been nice to know that filming of Anne with an E was filmed at what is called the Castle. The Castle should be called a manse or even mansion. I was expecting a castle and it isn't.
