We have been having some glorious spring days, and although the nights are still cold (we even had some frost the night before the last ),
this has been just the right weather for days out; at last!
So, armed with a picnic, we went to visit a couple of National Trust properties; although not very far from us (just the other side of Bradford on Avon), somehow we never got around to visiting before.
This is Great Chalfield Manor and Gardens .
Many NT houses featured in various TV dramas, and so did this one -
Wolf Hall, Poldark - just to name a couple.
We gave the guided tour of the house a miss (we can always come back for it another time), preferring to enjoy the lovely spring gardens.
