Sizergh Castle and Sizergh Barn

Another day, another day out!

On Wednesday we headed to Sizergh Castle to look around the gardens.

The children got a quiz from the shop and happily ran away in front.

They have a lovely little vegetable garden with all-sorts of veg and cut flowers. Look at the green house, isn't it beautiful.

We followed the children into the more formal part of the garden and helped jot down the answer to the quiz.

As me and my Mum had a rest, the children played croquet on the lawn! 

On a previous visit the lake had some really big fish in, but we couldn't see any this time. We did see some moorhens and some dragonflies.

The gardens a definitely worth a visit and when the children are older we may even venture into the house for a bit more culture.

 We brought a picnic lunch with us but needed a little bit of cake. . . so we headed to Sizergh Barn 

Its one of my favorite places to visit. The setting is perfect, with walks across farmland and through wooded valleys.

But better still the shop is full of really lovely stuff !

Mum bought a selection of cakes which we debated over shared out back at the car.
