A beautiful day out in Greys Court!

Lots of outdoor places are now reopening, giving us the opportunity to sometimes travel in time and explore a Tudor house or stroll in some beautiful gardens … The National Trust estate Greys Court offers such a historic and pleasant visit. Not far from London, it is an ideal destination for the summer! Stay safe!

A wonderful day at Anglesey Abbey

We had planned to stay at Cambridge for one night and to visit Anglesey Abbey the next morning, as the venue seemed to be exceptional. And so was it!
This National Trust is a delight for the eyes as the gardens are currently in glorious bloom. The visit was also the occasion for us to see a working watermill and discover a Jacobean-style house. A must-see destination for nature and history lovers…

An escape to Fountains Abbey

If you want to visit historic and romantic places in England, you’ll be very pleased with this destination. Fountains Abbey is said to be one of the largest and best-preserved ruined Cistercian monasteries in England. This is also a place where nature offers a wonderful scene. The Abbey is located north of England, near Leeds, York and Lake District. It now belongs to the National Trust. There’s a lot of history there and I particularly enjoyed the walk in the magnificent gardens…

A day at Hughenden

We made another amazing discovery lately (maybe you already looked at my last post relative to Cliveden? This will be another unavoidable National Trust treasure…). We were told we would visit a place where nature met history. That was all true and I warmly recommend to go to Hughenden to admire the gardens and know more about the history of the house. Indeed, the house once belonged to the Victorian statesman Benjamin Disraeli and then become a secret RAF base. A day full of discoveries, I told you…

A day in Cliveden

If you want to indulge yourself on a sunny day, go to Cliveden! This national trust is located west of London, near Slough and Windsor. This place offers magnificent gardens overlooking the River Thames and far-reaching views. The amateurs of flowers will be delighted, those looking for a nap in the sun won’t forget it, and if you are under 10 you’ll enjoy doing rolls on the grass!
