A visit to Hughenden Manor

By | February 16, 2014

A sunny weather forecast saw us heading out the door nice and early. Our destination was Hughenden Manor, a NT property in Buckinghamshire, once the country home of Benjamin Disraeli.

We arrived before the house was open so enjoyed a walk around the walled kitchen garden and formal garden. Little Sis didn’t want to pose for any photographs, instead stomping around the garden with her hands in her pockets.

The house was beautiful and we grabbed some activity sheets so the children had things to look for as we walked around. They were pretty well behaved and both enjoyed the room with replica toys and clothes to dress up in.

There were lots of hats!


We explored from top to bottom and also had fun making our own crests. This involved cutting, sticking and glueing 🙂


Then it was time for a yummy NT lunch in the converted stables. Little Sis was happy looking at the books whilst she waited, the NT do think of everything!

    We managed to get out this morning too. Nowhere as interesting as you though, but at least we managed to get some fresh air and a bit of sunshine! I love the NT. We used to go all the time as children and I want to take Potato to some of the places near me this summer.

    Not just a stunning property and lovely grounds but also plenty of activities to keep the children amused, it all makes for a great family day out! Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

    Used to live in HW, one of my favourite places and great for kids, especially the tea rooms and walled gardens. Well worth the visit!
