Our Bank Holiday Weekend

After the horrible weather last weekend I was so excited when the forecast for the bank holiday was sunny.

We had a family National Trust free pass so decided to visit Tyntesfield, I’d heard lots about it but it was even better than I could have imagined.

The house had been lived in until recently and nothing had ever been thrown away so it was full of the most amazing vintage crockery and furniture. I honestly would have loved to have left with lots of it!

Then you can walk around the grounds which are beautiful.











We had such a nice day, then on the way back we stopped and had dinner in a pub with a lovely garden.

Sunday was lovely weather too so we to a car boot sale in the morning then had a BBQ in the afternoon.

Monday wasn’t so good as Mr C had to work and the kids cried all day but hey at least we had two days of fun!

What did you all get up to?

    You’re like the third friend I know visited Tyntesfield this weekend! We went a few weeks ago and enjoyed it so much that I’m considering membership just so we can go there! I think it’s such an easy, pretty day out. Laurence isn’t sure it’s “wild” enough for us to go regularly though. *rolls eyes*

    Beautiful pictures and sounds like a lovely day.

    We headed to our local NT estate Ashridge and I took my camera for the first time to capture some pictures on the bluebells :)

    What lovely photos and I love the yellow of the rape – I must get out to take some photos before it goes. Looking at how sunny it was makes me feel so wistful – it’s so rainy today – and I long for summer!
