Our Day Out at Sheffield Park

Bank Holiday seems like ages ago but it was only last week...the week's weather was rubbish except for the Monday so we decided that that was the day for us to head out to a new National Trust place. The one we visited this time was one that is only 10 minutes down the road but a place we'd never visited before...Sheffield Park. 

The garden is a horticultural work of art formed through centuries of landscape design, with influences of ‘Capability’ Brown and Humphry Repton. Four lakes form the heart of the garden, with paths circulating through the glades and wooded areas surrounding them.

We must have picked the best day to visit as the sun was out and the gardens were full of colour. The gardens have various paths to walk around so you get to see everything, although you can see the house it's not actually open to the public but there is plenty to keep you entertained in the gardens. 

The gardens are set around various different ponds which are called Ten Foot Pond, Middle Lake, Upper and Lower Woman's Way. Also the smaller Storage Pond tucked away. The ponds had lots of wildlife around them and the girls loved seeing mummy swan taking care of her eggs. 

Depending on how much time you there are various paths to follow and each is bordered with beautiful bold colours which of course pleased me as it meant I could take lots of photos. 

hilst having a walk around with Aly trying to arrow a few trees Mia wanted to copy me with taking photos  so she took out her disposable camera and gave it a go. She got in with the bluebells to get up close and personal. 

While we were there we also enjoyed a lovely hot meal at the tearoom to refuel before we headed over to the parkland to walk with the cows and sheep before we arrived at the Woodland play trail which had one of the biggest rope swings we'd ever seen. Mia wasn't to keen but Aly wanted to go as high as possible. 

It was a beautiful day that all the family enjoyed and a place we'll be visiting again in the future. Once again here is my favourite photo from the day.
