Wrest Park

Whilst the big 3 were at Pony Club Camp at their riding school, P and I went to Wrest Park, an English Heritage property about 50 minutes outside Cambridge. First, we headed for the play area which had various wooden climbing and play structures as well as swings and a zip line
 We had a quick visit to the house which has a few rooms open. It was interesting to find out about the different people who would have worked there and about how it was turned into a hospital during the war.
 We then spent the rest of the day in the gardens which are extensive and full of quirky corners with statues, summer houses and water features. 
 There is also a rather wonderful tree to climb!
We happened to go on a day when they had one of their summer holiday activities on and so we joined a walk to find Wrest's faerie population.

 We then did a hunt for hidden faerie doors which was fun!
