Another Long Weekend at Warwick Racecourse Caravan Club site. We even coincidentally got the same pitch we had last time….
We visited a couple of National Trust properties on the way there. First Packwood House..
… then Baddesley Clinton.
The first time we visited Warwick, on our way South last winter, we went to Stratford and visited Shakespeare’s birthplace, Ann Hathaway’s cottage etc. The ticket for this covers a number of properties and is valid for a year. One problem – Mary Arden’s farm is closed in November. It would have been wasteful not to have got full use of our tickets, so off we went on Saturday to check it out. I liked the “living exhibit” aspect of the place; Mark took every opportunity to interact with the wildlife…
No time to waste – from the farm we continued on to Charlecote Park – more National Trust “savings”.
On Sunday we visited Althorp – it’s one of the “big ticket” properties in the HHA, so while we’re still members this was the time to go. Been there, seen it, no need to return.
We slotted in another National Trust property on our way home on Monday; Sunnycroft near Telford. This one was fantastic – a Victorian house with everything a Victorian house should have (some of which my house still has; many of which it doesn’t).
And that was that – another weekend flown past in the blink of an eye…..
