Pooh @ Mottisfont

The wonderful thing about Mottisfont, is Mottisfont’s a wonderful thing…

Watch your step. Pooh is everywhere at Mottisfont. Fortunately, for a suggested donation of £1, you can find out where the Pooh is and avoid it (if so inclined).

Willow is a fan of Pooh (who isn’t?) so we opted for the trail map and set on our way around the gardens (and house… eventually).

The gardens were beautiful and our stroll by the river, speckled with Pooh activities, was full of simple pleasures. Ducks, swans and (not so baby) cygnets fought against the strong tide in the hope they would be fed but alas we had no bread. Many a butterfly fluttered by and some dragonflies flew too. The gentle breeze kept us cool and the Tea Room kept us warm, a delightful combination.

We shall return, without the children I’m sure, as it took us nearly five hours to explore the surrounds (with a pit
stop or two) and I have no doubt the house had a lot more to offer than ‘making a flower’ although, for Willow, this was one of the best bits.P1060917

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I wonder where will our annual National Trust memberships take us next?
