Family & Days Out Garden

The Wonderful Attingham Park Gardens

On a beautiful sunny day a couple of weeks back, we made the trip up to Attingham Park, a superb National Trust property. It was our first visit and we were not disappointed. I’ll blog more about our day there and the house in the next few days, as there was so much to see, so for today, I’ll concentrate on the gardens.

There are extensive grounds and woodlands for strolling, meandering and playing in…

Signs of Spring were everywhere…

It made me think of a person with arms outstretched. Right next to the orchard is a huge walled garden (I so love walled gardens!) that was originally the family’s kitchen garden for the household and guests..

I was fascinated by the little gardener’s hut in there, full of information and objects hinting at days gone by.

And in the huge courtyard, as I was leaving, they also had plant sales!

Its is just so very beautiful there. The gardens and grounds alone could have kept us occupied, but then we had the stunning mansion to explore, the outbuildings, stables, ice house, playing area, bookshop, cafe – so much to see! Pop by on Saturday when I’ll be sharing the rest of our day out there…
