Family & Days Out

Charming Charlecote Park

We have renewed our National Trust membership, but until last weekend, we’d not used it this year. I was missing it, there’s something special about our NT outings. The children love to run freely, I enjoy roaming around the gardens, and then rummaging through the plants and book sales, and then there are the cakes. There always has to be a cake stop! Every one of our National Trust days out feels like an adventure, a peaceful, happy, family day. We all smile, we all feel a real sense of contentment in the surroundings. And so for our first one of the year, we chose an old favourite, Charlecote Park…..

It’s lovely to see Little Man out of his pushchair for our outings this year. He’s grown so much over the last few months, and he and his sister run and play together, exploring their new surroundings…

They both ran and ran and ran, laughing and making discoveries around every corner.

I liked taking in the little signs of spring…

I’d like to say we ambled around the house, but as is often the case, we raced around it, whilst the children hunted the cuddly foxes in there. They know there’s usually a trail of some sort in the houses that we visit and this is always a highlight for them…

Very occasionally, I can get Boo to stand still..

And after all of that running around, even fuelled by a chocolate brownie, Little Man needed a lift back to the car…

We had a great time, felt fully restored, and we’re eager to get to another National Trust site veryΒ soon.
