Been away for the weekend.....part one

This weekend was spent in a caravan in Kent - not the luxury kind, but a static home - it was fine for a few days but it was a bit cramped to spend a whole week there. It was also a bit cold so it was good we remembered to bring our heater!

We made the most of it by visiting some National Trust and English Heritage site whilst we were there.

On Friday we went to Scotney Castle which was lovely to look at. You can go inside the 'new' castle, which was very interesting, but not so picturesque as the 'old' castle. The owners built the new one as the old castle was too damp!

This is part of the old buliding.....

...and the view across the water - just beautiful....

This is the new building, not as pretty - but I still wouldn't turn it down if it was given to me....


There was a beautiful garden and lake, but it was a little too damp to walk about too much. We spent an hour or so there, which was a good way to break up the journey.
