One of my favourite places to visit on a sunny day in the summer holidays are National Trust locations. Rather than going to the most well known locations in my local area, B and I have taken to having a search on the website to find something smaller that we've never heard of before. Last summer we happened upon this beautiful little gem, Gawthorpe Hall.
The inside of the venue boasts a stunning mix of architecture from various eras, due the building being passed through a family line. As with most National Trust locations, there's no cameras allowed inside but I took loads of snaps of the absolutely stunning grounds to make up for it.

For this jaunt in the country I wore a pretty floral dress I picked up on one of my caribbean adventures in the past, a Popband* as a bracelet and some gorgeous Bellast sterling silver star earrings*
On a beautiful sunny day, places like this are just crying out to the explored. We went off in search of the perfect picnic spot! We happened upon this cool lake which had teeny, tiny baby frogs hopping around all over the place. We had to be careful not to stand on them!
After our lovely day wandering around the grounds, we headed home for a BBQ in the back garden. A perfect day for Pimm's and olives, wouldn't you agree? :)
What's your favourite thing to do in the summer? Are you a fan of visiting National Trust locations too?
