Englefield Estate

This morning I went to Englefield Estate Gardens.  Lovely place for a morning out - esepecially at this time of year, very Pride and Prejudice!

I hadn't realised it was owned by the family of Richard Benyon MP.  Well I have to say it's another world!  My mother in law commented: "I can't guess which party he's in!". 

But more seriously good for him to work with Affinity Trust on the garden centre, which I can testify is well stocked and worth a browse!

I also like how child friendly it is (£3 entry, children free - and they have a slide, swings, a secret grotto and a carved statue of a bear.  The cafe has high chairs and baby change facilities)
