Taking advantage of some pretty decent weather for a change last weekend, we visited a local country house here in Gloucestershire, Highnam Court. We'd long wanted to have a look around the place and, as the famous gardens were open in aid of the Cobalt Unit ( a fantastic charity ), we went along to give our support and have a walk and a picnic in the grounds.
Highnam Court is a beautiful manor house with some gorgeous landscaped gardens, ranging in style from the more formal, typically Victorian gardens, to ones in the Italian and Japanese styles.
It's a beautiful, well-designed place with so many interesting features around every corner - well worth a visit if you're in the area...
A perfect way to spend a warm Sunday afternoon: in an English country garden.
( The rest of my weekend was a bit more rock 'n' roll, but that's the subject of my next post... )
