Towards the beginning of 2015 we bought ourselves a family pass to National Trust and it was one of the best things we've done. We've tried to visit lots of different places that we wouldn't normally go to.
Just before Christmas (I think) we visited Wakehurst Place which is in West Sussex. Read More
This weekend we visited a local National Trust property which had a beautiful garden to explore. The girls weren't so keen until Aly saw all the Autumn colours and then she declared that Autumn is her favourite season.

Sometimes you forget just how lucky you are. You forget that where you live is beautiful and that there are far worse places in the World to be.

We are getting used to these Bank Holiday weekends. This past Bank Holiday Monday we went to Bateman's National Trust site which is is Burwash East Sussex and is only a 30 minute drive from us. The weather was lovely so we also packed a picnic and headed off on our adventures. Read More
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. Read More
We're trying to make it our aim to visit various National Trust places every weekend and so far so good. We've been to Bodiam Castle, Lanhydrock and last weekend we visited Standen House and Gardens which is set in the beautiful Sussex countryside. Seeing as it's only about 25 minutes down the road it seemed like the perfect place to go to for a little picnic and admire the gardens. Read More
