Its finally here!
Some of you may know, we'd been booked to go last year but I was poorly so we couldn't go. The sad part was, hubby was going to propose there! I was gutted I couldn't go so when the summer tickets went on sale we jumped at them. It seems like forever ago we brought them but the day finally arrived!!
The weathers been so nice, but of course today comes and it decides to be rainy and over cast. Having said that I'd prefer it to be cooler than beating hot.
I wore a dress cause it was still warm just alittle grey!
The journey wasn't too bad at all, no traffic and we didn't get lost once! (Well done hubby!)
Now, for those who've been to highclere castle, does it seem much bigger on TV than it does in person?! I felt like the front door was teeny! Everything seemed small? Just me then?!
Inside was just beautiful. So regal. So well kept. I've always loved the darker colours in decor, up until we redecorated not too long ago. Now after seeing the castle, I want my dark walls back! 🙈
After looking inside we went on a walk around the grounds and found some little paths and flower gardens. I'm now, of course going to buy every lavender plant ever grown!
We took a picnic with us just incase we were able to sit outside (weather permitting!). We found a bench and set up camp for awhile. The weather held out for us minus afew rain drops! Then the wind blew my pimms all over the place!! One was not amused!
I've had such a lovely day, being with my love and looking around what is such a romantic place. I'm glad we eventually made it! I was so sad we couldn't go last time so this time round made it more special. Now I can't wait for the new series 😊
I hope you've all had a lovely weekend
