We Went: Chatsworth Gardens

We've been trying to make the most of the dry British Weather lately, and in doing this have made a pact to try and visit more places local to where we live. Last Bank Holiday Weekend we visited Elvaston Castle ....

Which was so much fun, this Bank Holiday weekend we thought we'd do more of the same!

We decided upon Chatsworth as it's such a beautiful estate with some of the most glorious gardens around. We packed up our picnic and hopped off in the car.

It only took us about 40 minutes before we reached the rolling green countryside. I dream one day to live in a beautiful cottage, with a big farmhouse kitchen, surrounded by long winding lanes. Ahh the dream. I would bake cakes and go for long walks. Enough of that though, let's get back on topic! We finally reached our destination and we were not disappointed.
You can't be anything but impressed by the impeccably manicured gardens, you can walk around for miles admiring all the different flowers and sculptures.
We took each others hand, and off we pottled. It was so nice to be out of the house and in the fresh air. It was quite busy with families spread out enjoying picnics on the grass or playing garden games like cricket. Looks like we all had the same idea! We perched on the edge of a maze to enjoy our picnic. Munching on Strawberries and watching the people go by, we chatted away.
We explored the different gardens, and then made our way to the café for a nice hot beverage! I was so tempted by the Champagne bus! It was like an old fashioned ice cream van but it served all different champagne! However, in typical English style the weather had turned a little chilly and opted for a hot chocolate instead!
What Are You Up To This Bank Holiday Weekend?
