#CountryKids at Sizergh Castle

Country Kids from Coombe Mill Family Farm Holidays Cornwall

With family up for the long weekend who love taking photographs there was only one choice for day one Sizergh Castle. They have just started allowing photography inside the castle as well so it was a good time to make our annual whizz inside (we most often just stay in the garden and grounds.

First up on the child led tour was the sunken garden:




Then we wandered past the wonderful flower beds:





Then it was time for the children to do a barefoot walk from the beehives to the chicken run:




We had time to try making grass trumpets and playing Pooh sticks before heading back towards to the castle:




Before going into the castle the children headed to the barn to try out the medieval dressing up clothes:


Eventually it was time to head to the main entrance for our timed entry into the castle:


They have quizzes to get the children to slow down and actually look at what is in the rooms as you go round but we still seemed to whizz pretty quick past all these lovely things:




We picnicked near the front pond before looking to see what nature had so show us:



Little brother had dipped her!


All in all a perfect Country Kids day!

  6. Lovely pictures - I bet Sizergh will be glorious in autumn too when all those trees start to turn.

    Sizergh is beautiful, and how great they are allowing photos to be taken now. Your photos of the garden and children are lovely and it seems you had perfect weather to enjoy the grounds. Thanks for linking up and sharing with Country Kids.

  8. The gardens look beautiful, so much to see and the photos are lovely. My husband went to uni in Ambleside and for some reason we never went to Sizergh, I can't think why because it looks amazing! We'll have to visit in the future.
