re holiday flats my son made me do it , must declare an interest. Re snails, you can eat ordinary garden snails if not poisoned by nasty slug pellets. I believe there is a bit of a procedure though, involving gathering up the largest ones and keeping them in a container they cant get out of, letting them drink water for a few days while starving to 'clean' the insides and presumably get rid of snail poo, then boiling them for a few minutes before cooking them in butter and garlic or whatever. Just thought there would be someone clever who would know all this and was feeling a bit daring................. I think I did hear that programme, which maybe was why I thought of it in the first place.
