My first visit to Mottisfont abbey near stockbridge the other week in may. Its a National Trust property a tad expensive I think to get in £7.50 but then they always are, it was well maintained i guess….
Been meaning to go for months. Was very impressed. Would love to see the roses in fulll bloom which is this month/June and the bluebells in april. However a perfect day it turned out, and able to picnic in the ground, lots of spots there. Actually we picnicked by a huge wedding plant, a kind of hydrangea, which was fab.
The house was in well kept and great condition too, and it was worth watching to video to see the histrory in brief, not too long.
Even managed a short walk up the river and back, which was worth while, not muddy as I had thought, we were lucky as we had the buggy.
Missed quite a few bits so will have to go back…I spent an afternoon there, but you could easily spend longer.
