We had a day out with the boys again on Saturday, giving Jenny some time to herself.
Witley Court is an English Heritage site about a half hours drive from us. As with National Trust properties you have to pre-book your visit at the moment, even if you are a member, I booked our 12pm slot the Wednesday before, it does means that you have to take pot luck with the weather but we were lucky, it was a beautiful day, there were a few threatening black clouds at one point, but they soon blew in another direction and it stayed dry for us.
I last visited Witley Court in June last year, you can read more about the ruin in this post and see the photos I took of the inside on that day.
This was the conservatory, Imagine sitting in here with those views!
Can you spot Oliver? gives you a sense of how big the house is
The boys had a lovely time, the grounds are lovely and open, plenty of space for little people to run around
Arty loves horses and was fascinated by the one in the fountain
Although the playground is still closed off to the children the boys didn't seem to mind, we had a lovely walk around the lake and the wilderness garden after our picnic and they were happy doing that, picking up cones and interesting sticks along the way, as boys do!
It was such a lovely relaxing day, the boys never keep still but were as good as gold and I know Jenny appreciated a long afternoon to herself.
