I love sharing our travels and days out here on the blog; whether it’s a holiday abroad, a weekend away or a day trip closer to home. We are lucky to live in the beautiful county of Cornwall, and there is so much to see and do; right on our doorstep!

This Week #18 – NT is Open, Finishing Books and a Socially Distanced Picnic

We are still largely staying at home; as much as restrictions are lessening each week, so of course, as usual I haven’t been doing much but we did manage to get out, in a socially distanced capacity; a couple of times this week which has been nice!

This Week

And what a week this has been, I’m so shocked at how much the weather has changed in just a few days!

A Day Out To – Trelissick Gardens

Finally we are able to get out and about again! So we’re heading not too far from home this week, to one of our favourite nearby National Trust sites, Trelissick Gardens.

A day out to...

Now I’m back to work facing the general public again, so, it meant we’ve decided to make the occasional booking for a day out again. At least here, a few places are open, in some capacity, with timed arrivals spots available for booking around a day or two in advance.

Of course this is a difficult time, but we really enjoy our wanders around local National Trust properties and gardens, and have missed them so much over the lockdown, so for our first wander (aside from the local park) we booked to visit Trelissick.

A Day Out To Trelissick Garden: A Summer Walk

Having a relaxing Sunday recently; we decided to go and have a wander around Trelissick Garden again.

A day out to...

The joy of this particular National Trust garden being quite close by; is that we can just get in the car and be there a few minutes later! It’s definitely something that before we had membership this year, we were completely unaware of!

A Day Out To: NT Trelissick for a February Walk

News! We were given National Trust membership as a gift for Stu’s Birthday which is perfect when I’d already decided to share some more of our days out! Cornwall has many National Trust gardens and properties, and we can’t wait to explore! First up – Trelissick!

A day out to...

Unfortunately many are closed until March, but Trelissick is open this month, and conveniently is the nearest National Trust property to us!
