Sunday Photo – Corfe Castle

Yesterday we went on a last minute trip to Corfe Castle in Dorset. Not very local – but we were forecast all rain in London so my husband cleverly noticed that if we just went quite a bit further West we could escape that and still get a good day out – so why not!

I will put a full post up when I get chance as it was a lovely place and I would definitely recommend but for now, here is my #SundayPhoto of the boys having fun exploring the ruins.

We are thinking of getting National Trust membership as we have really enjoyed the few places we have explored so far. Which National Trust sites would you recommend for young families? Let me know in the comments!

We are going to be taking part in an exciting project with the National Trust soon, so keep an eye out for that too!

  1. What a lovely picture – we love Corfe Castle and are lucky that its local!
    Keep an eye out for NT offers at places you visit – some have 25% off. Our roving NT man @jurassicoastin always has them too.
    Our fave NT places in Dorset are the Studland beaches, Corfe Castle, Kingston Lacy, Burton Bradstock, Bradbury Rings, Brownsea Island. Moving North are Stonehenge and Stourhead.
    I’m not that familiar with places close to you although Nymans in West Sussex has lots for kids to explore and Knole is beautiful!!
    Enjoy exploring xx

  2. We have spent all day today at the Osterley Park country fair.

    It was a lovely day out but the gardens and house are lovely anyway. They have just redone some of it they have a little second bookshop and a shop in addition to the cafe now.

    When the National Trust do their free days out thing that they seem to do every now and then they let you into the house for free. πŸ™‚

    Perhaps you’ve already been if you live in London? It’s worth a go if not.

    Clumber Park is lovely too, I used to live local to it, spent lots of time there as a kid.

  3. What a great photo of them and what a brilliant idea to just head off and avoid the rain. I love the National Trust, although being in Northern Ireland my places to visit wouldn’t be of much use to you, it might be a little far for a day trip out lol x

    We’ve also been invited to a secret day out with them soon, I can’t wait πŸ™‚
