It's no secret that I'd rather spend my time at palaces and stately homes than on a white beach in the Caribbean! So I've taken it upon myself to try and visit as many as I can!!
Today we went to Blenheim palace. We passed the signs on the way to highclere castle and hubby and I really wanted to have a walk around the place. So, here we are! The boys loved it! I was suprised at how much there was for kids to do. We went in the maze, failed miserably but we tried never the less! They played on climbing frames and a jumpy castle, they had miniature houses. We ran around the secret garden, we looked at all the old trees and most of all, they loved finding the little water falls in the gardens 😊
The boys also loved that we were given maps. They enjoyed stopping and huddling around to see where we were and what was close!!
Because we took the babies with us we decided just to look around the grounds but I'm thinking I'd like to go again, just hubby and I this time. So we can look inside and take our time. With two little ones you have to move fast to avoid breakdowns lol!!
Anyway, I thought highclere was big! This place was MASSIVE!! Such a beautiful sight, the amazingly intricate work that's been put into it. It really is a joy to see.
If you're looking for somewhere to take the kids in the holidays I'd really recommend this beautiful place. Lots to do, lots to eat and drink and lots of fresh air!
Here's some eye candy I snapped while we were there.....
P.s I found more lavender gardens!! 💜
