I have wanted to visit Ickworth House near Bury St Edmunds for some time now and today we finally made it a date ...
The sun shone and the showers , well they showered ..lots but with so much to see both inside and outside the House did not disappoint. Beautiful oil paintings , marble busts and antique furniture and chandeliers to die for.
The great hall was stunning with balustrades , circular 'windows' and yet more stunning artwork.
Outside in the grounds and garden there were formal Italianate Gardens , clipped topiary and manicured
lawns alongside pastoral scenes of sheep and their young lambs in a quintessential English country landscape.
We had such a lovely day and to top it all off we decided to buy a family membership to the National Trust, I'm sure we will enjoy lots more beautiful days out especially when we visit Yorkshire later on in the year for our holidays.
I hope you all had a lovely Bank Holiday too xx
