Hey Everyone i wanted to share another of our family days out using our National Trust passes again. Sunday we ventured further south to Kingston Lacy. A beautiful lavish home where William John Banks lived with his family and servants. The grounds are stunning and the fields go on for miles!
We had a good look around the beautiful home which was decorated to resemble an italian palace, so grand and extravagant. Mr Banks was obsessed with tortoises also so when waling round the home and gardens there were little snippets of tortoises everywhere, There were also tons of paintings to look at some were very out there!
We had a lovely picnic on the grass and soaked up the weather and sun before it turned a little cloudy.
There is a really lovely restaurant on site and lots of seating areas.
We brought coffees and cake from a cute vintage looking van.. i so want one ha!
The kids enjoyed running around the garden.. walking through the forest part and checking out the mini canons. There was an adorable dopey cat just sound asleep the whole time we were there in the flower beds, the kids couldn't stop stroking it!
I love having a look in the little gift shops although the kids couldn't help but touch everything as we walked round!
We had a really lovely day and would recommend checking out Kingston Lacy for a day trip out, lots of people set up chairs and blankets for a full day there with games etc.. definitely something were be doing next time!
