hidcote manor garden

We tried to visit Hidcote a week or so ago but ended up in Cardiff (long story!).
Yesterday’s expedition was more successful. Moira+I have recently taken up National Trust membership again – we do this every few years, then let it drop – and were determined to re-visit this beautiful Gloucestershire garden (we think we’ve been there twice before, but simply ages ago). We had a lovely time and probably spent nearly four hours there. We’d also taken our own food and coffee and so the bonus was that it actually felt as if we’d had a very cheap day out (if you don’t count the NT membership and the petrol!).
If you’ve not been, we’d highly recommend that you go.
