Favourite Five National Trust Days OutBack

FountainsAbbeyIn conjunction with our excellent competition this month, offering five lucky winners a free family membership to the National Trust, we’ve put our heads together and come up with our five favourite National Trust days out.

To enter our competition, all you have to do is visit us on Facebook and ‘like’ our page to be in with a chance of winning this fantastic prize. Good luck.

Lyme Park, Peak District

Described by the National Trust as a “glorious house, surrounded by gardens, moorland and deer park”, Lyme Park is definitely worth a visit. Nestling on the edge of the Peak District, it was once known as a great sporting estate. Thriving in the Edwardian era, Lyme Park sports a lavish interior which offers something for all the family. You can try out the piano, read a book in the library or take the children to dress up on the stage. The 1,300 acre estate is the perfect place to explore offering fantastic walks and stunning views including a Crow Wood Playscape for the kids and a Timber Yard Coffee Shop.

Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden

If you are looking for a beautiful day out, a visit to the Cistercian abbey with its elegant Georgian water garden and medieval deer park is an absolute must. Fountains Abbey is a World Heritage Site set in 800 acres of countryside. You can spend time exploring the magnificent 12th-century abbey ruins or wander through the stunning landscaped water garden at Studley Royal which offers breathtaking views across the countryside.

Dyrham’s West Garden

If you’re a fan of gardens, Dyram West Garden is an absolute must, and unlike most gardens during the winter, there is plenty to see in November and December. The winter season is wonderfully peaceful and makes for the perfect time to visit and enjoy the structure of the garden with fruits and evergreen trees and plenty of shrubs to enjoy. There are calming reflections in the two pools and if the weather is frosty coupled with a low sun, the garden really comes to life as you walk through it and admire its beauty, peace and tranquillity.

Studland Beach, Dorset

Studland beach offers a vast area of sandy beach ad heathland and is described as “a glorious slice of natural coastline” by the National Trust. Featuring a four-mile stretch of golden, sandy beach there is gentle shelving waters perfect for bathing coupled with stunning views towards Old Harry Rocks and the Isle of Wight. Studland is also the ideal beach for water sports, and behind the sand lies the heathland which offers a haven for native wildlife, featuring all six of Britain’s reptiles. Studland is also famous for providing the inspiration behind Toytown in Enid Blyton’s famous book, Noddy.

Hadrian’s Wall & Housesteads Fort

Heaped in history, Hadrians Wall and Housesteads Fort are an absolutely must see consisting of a roman wall running through wild landscape. Take a walk alongside the wall to Milecastle 37 and the infamous Sycamore Gap and enjoy some amazing sights on the way which provide you with a real insight into life in the Roman military. Enjoy exploring the archaeological remains whilst you can use the stone walls as a guide to help you envision the different chambers and rooms. A great day out with plenty to experience and discover along the way.
