A day out in Wiltshire

We surprised nanny by turning up unannounced on her doorstep. I think she was pleased to see us, especially as we had booked the pub for lunch.

The weather was amazing and after lunch we had plenty of time to explore the pub garden which had a lovely stream running through it. The children played pooh sticks and had fun walking the plank.

Dusting off our National Trust cards

Today we dusted off our National Trust membership cards and headed to Stourhead in Wiltshire.

We had lunch in The Spread Eagle Inn at Stourhead before heading out to admire the view. The views are breathtaking! We didn’t walk around the lake this time but we explored a temple and looked at all the colourful trees.

Then it was back up the hill to the house where the children enjoyed searching for robins in the rooms which were all decorated for Christmas. There were lots hidden around amongst the Christmas decorations and flowers.

Not many rooms were open so we headed back outdoors. The walk back to the visitor centre goes past the pond where we looked for frogs (there were none unlike last time we visited) and then on to the willow tunnel which the children loved running through. We finished off our trip with a nice hot chocolate in the cafe to warm up – brrrr, it was cold!

Time for tea

We only brought a couple of toys away with us but the tea set from Auntie CaCa has been very popular lately. Nothing beats a good cup of tea.

tea time It rained a little bit today so we headed to Warminster so the toddler could play with his model boat in the lovely park there. My husband made a little video from the boat which can be seen here.
