Historic Houses – A-Z Challenge 2021

Something you will of course find a fair bit of here on the blog, are posts about our days out, and local wanderings! We love visiting some of the historic houses and sites here in cornwall; as well as many other places of interest!

A-Z Challenge 2021

This year my A-Z Challenge theme is: The Craft Room and Beyond – A Retrospective. A look back at previous content and basically a chance to share and revisit some things from the archive. As I have said before; if you see something that piques your interest that I don’t link to; certainly seek out the search bar, or get in touch!

A Day Out To – Lanhydrock Gardens

I’m so glad we’re getting back to going out once or twice a month again; we’ve visited Trelissick already, and now it’s time for Lanhydrock Gardens. It’s a little more complicated with booking in advance, so a there’s not as much chance to be impulsive.

You can find out more about booking visiting times for the National Trust here.

But with the amazing weather we’re having at the moment; it’s so nice to get out, and enjoy some of our favourite places in the sunshine!

A day out to...

Of course the National Trust houses aren’t open yet; which is understandable, but it’s a rare treat to be able to get out and enjoy Lanhydrock’s beautiful gardens; which, if you’re eagle eyed when it comes to past posts, our visits usually get a bit rainy! (This is purely coincidental! We just have bad luck visiting when it comes to the weather!) The gardens are beautiful, and there is so much to see.

Throughout this year we have visited a number of National Trust properties; thanks to having couples membership. It seemed only right to go again this month, before it runs out in January, especially at this most pretty time of year.

A Day Out To – NT Lanhydrock House

Of course with March came the “Beast From the East” bringing snow even as far as Cornwall; and we were afraid we wouldn’t get a weekend to actually go out anywhere! But things managed to calm down mid-month; and we decided to brave the rain and armed with our new National Trust membership cards; we went to visit Lanhydrock house.

A day out to...

It’s no secret that this is one of my favourite places to visit.
