Croome Park

 I went to a place called 'Croome Park' a couple of weeks ago with my Grandparents and I took a few pictures that I thought I'd share with you.
Basically lots of old traditional houses are preserved by an organisation called 'The National Trust' and you can visit them.
I love history, so to see houses and see how they would have been decorated hundreds of years ago fascinates me to no end.
Croome Park was built in the 18th century and still looks magnificent today, oh how I would love to live in a house like this one!
Croome park is about 45 minutes away from where I live and it is a really relaxing place.
The grounds are incredible, I'm not a massive outdoor person but I do like to walk around the grounds here because they are beautiful.
There are acres of land on Croome Park, I don't think I would ever have the energy to walk it all, I don't know how they did it back then, I'm guessing they used horses. Ahhh I just had a scene from 'Black Beauty' pop into my head, horses can be really cute.
I love trips like this to relax and have a chat with the people that I'm with. I guess it sounds like an old person thing to do, but I disagree completely. How could you not want to look at the amazingly beautiful houses?
There was a family on swans by the lake, they were adorable, the baby swans (otherwise known as Cygnets) were so cute and tiny, they reminded me of the story of the ugly duckling. Wasn't that story sad?
You have to visit a place like this, there are hundreds across the UK and they are just so cute and old, plus I love learning about history and having a relaxing day out.
I have been here so many times and I will definitely go back, it is so beautiful and you can even have afternoon tea in the tapestry room (wow, now I sound really old), it is one of my favourite things to do. Ever.

What do you like to do on a relaxing day out? Are there any places you go to that you think are beautiful?
