A girly day out .
Welcomed by carol singers
and they were really good.
Staff dressed in Victorian dress
Lots of rooms of the main court yard
filled with other stalls
Some stalls were situated in a small tented area and the property had lots of rooms off a large courtyard, these also were filled with stalls. This was a bit we found tricky as the rooms were quite small and dark and Little Miss didn't like going into them as they obviously got busy as the fair is well publicised . Some people
were pushing to get in and out of the rooms and it all got a bit much to be honest at times so instead we had a wander in the less crowded areas and just enjoyed looking around in the house.
Of course we had to see Santa
inside the house
The room was a little dark but
the table was dressed for Christmas dinner.
It was beautiful..
I loved this dresser..
On the top shelf was a box of Kilner jars going back
Then time for a coffee and a
The grounds were so nice
I think this must of been the old orangery
Beautiful vegetable gardens
The house has a working farm
and a lake but it was
too cold to explore more,
we will be back on a better day.
I bet it will be a lovely place
To visit in Spring.
Little Miss decided
to spend some of
her saved pocket money on these
Now one has a red scarf and I need to
make the other one too...
These were actually in the
National Trust shop.
We bought a few edible gifts
but I forgot to photograph these
were wrapped and posted.
The children have now broken up,
I did a bit of Christmas food shopping today
and the shops were not as busy
as I thought they would be.
One week to go !
I am hoping to get some more of
the red and white
I found some plain fabric to back
The Christmas panel
hopefully that will be
ready to show next time.
See you soon.
