Another day trip we made during half term was to the National Trust Property of Kingston Lacey.
I had heard the Snowdrops were in full bloom and i thought it would be nice to see….being from Maine, bulbs don’t typically sprout and flower until May so an early Spring is a treat. We had a spare day so I packed up a picnic, the kids and the dog and headed out. Just a short(ish) drive to Wimborne Minster, Dorset from where we live.
Kingston Lacey is a National Trust property. A country House and estate dating back to the 17th century. The grounds are extensive and what I particularly liked was the fact I could take the dog! They will provide you with a map where dogs are permitted which was ample and we took many of the forest trails too which led to Kids playgrounds allowing the younger 2 to burn off some energy.
The Snowdrops and daffodils were in full bloom and coupled with some sunshine made for a please few hours out.
The house is currently closed (except for 2 rooms), so we didn’t make it inside (opting to stay outside while we could!). I am sure it would be worth a return visit though.
As with any National Trust property, we rounded out our afternoon with a Cream Tea in the tea rooms. Nicely done in the old stables/ stable yard of the house.
