Baddesley Clinton

Updated: Apr 6, 2020

This week I had an afternoon free and fancied a drive to somewhere to get some fresh air.

One of the best things about where we live is that it’s always a short drive to the countryside, and we’re surrounded by some gorgeous villages and places to visit.

The forecast was cloudy skies with a chance of rain but I didn’t let that put me off.

I put on my Hunter boots and a Seasalt raincoat (I picked this beauty up from their outlet store whilst I was in Cornwall during the summer) and headed to Baddesley Clinton, a National Trust gem just under half an hours drive away.

Jacket: Seasalt

And I’m so glad I did! It was lovely and quiet on a midweek afternoon so I felt as if I had the place to myself.

I wandered around the house and gardens admiring the winter flowers and berries.

And sat for a while in the greenhouses watching the world go by, with a hot cup of tea to keep off the winter chill that was in the air.

Wellies: Hunter

The Christmas trees all lit up and twinkling made me feel very festive too! We're putting up our own tree this weekend.

I’ve been in-between a run of night shifts this week and it can be easy to just want to stay indoors and relax, but actually getting out and exploring on my own or visiting a favourite haunt is sometimes exactly what I need.

Having a National Trust membership means I can visit so many beautiful places on a whim. And George and I were lucky enough to be gifted an English Heritage membership as a wedding present, opening up many more locations for us to explore!

Winter may be here, but that’s no reason to stay cooped up indoors.
