Wiltshire Weekend...

[Photo HEAVY]
This weekend was truly wonderful, me & Sam spent so much time together and really made it a worthy weekend

On Saturday morning, we venture to Marlborough for some breakfast, it has my favrouite tea shop that does all sorts of yumminess. Cakes galore! We opted for the all day breakfast & cakes to take away

 Delightfully full, we made a our way to Lacock, to visit the Abbey. The village is gorgeous, and some where I love to just go and be, however neither of us had ever been to the Abbey before
On the way in, we fell for a bargain & decided to get National Trust memberships. The 'young adult' memberships are a mere £23.50 (it was £13 to get into Lacock Abbey), so we made the decision & went for it. I'm excited to travel around and see more of their houses and gardens, this weekend we are doing to venture to another one near us. It may not be every ones cup of tea, but now we have them, we're really excited to use it and see more of the UK
The Abbey and gardens are just beauitful, such a relaxing a lovely place to be. We spent hours just walking through and taking a million photos (well almost) photos of the grounds

If you ever get the chance to go to Lacock, then it's a must do- especially for all the HP fans, surely? 

In the evening we walked the dogs until sunset & finished off the day with Chinese takeaway and X-factor- perfect! 


Sunday was lazy and chilled out, we had to pop into town for a few bits and pieces (after a nice lie-in) and then off strawberry picking we went!
I've never been to a pick your own before, was lots of fun & the afternoon turned out to be gorgeous weather. This particular pick your own was on a working farm, so we had to say hello to all the animals 

Strawberries, raspberries & corn on the cob were picked (and eaten-nom nom nom)

Do you have places like this near where you live that you just don't visit enough? I have such a beauitful county, I seem to miss it some times though, it's nice just to stop & stare

I hope you all had lovely weekends too
