Rob and I had a lovely day out yesterday at Blickling Hall in Norfolk - we had not been before and as it is National Trust thought we would have a day together. I do love using our National Trust membership you feel you are getting value for your money!!!
The journey over was nice and we had coffee and home made scones when we arrived then spent a leisurely day looking around the house and grounds. Rob got into trouble as he asked what the significance of 'The Cow' was as they had them at the entrance way on ceilings and a lovely school marm type lady loudly told him that their were NO COWS at Blickling that the Coat of Arms heralded a BULL. He was heard to be muttering I just met one!!!!

The interior of the house was fantastic and the ceilings were majestic and I adored this one they let you take photos without a flash and this was done on the phone so perhaps not as clear as if I had used the better camera

I loved the celtic knot type panel.

The gardens and grounds were beautiful and I just loved all the trees - I took lots of pictures of the trees.

This is the front entrance - puts my front path to shame!!!
We had lunch in the restaurant which was delicious and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is nice to have days to do something different together


  1. Sounds like a nice day out. I love the celtic panel.
