We are back after a lovely long weekend! For the past 72 hours Mark and I were away from London for the first time this year and it was such a welcome break. I was nervous when the weather predicted three days of straight rain but for the most part we, thankfully, had a dry weekend. While we usually would have stayed with Mark’s family the current England Lockdown rules do not allow of that so we rented a cottage for a few days.
We then spent time with friends and family outside, enjoying drinks and Sunday roast at local pubs and taking numerous country walks. Even though there are already a few snaps on Instagram I wanted to share a few more pictures from our weekend away. When my future mother-in-law described the shetland cows in a field near the back of her house I asked if I could go see them. Besides being a city girl who gets excited around farm animals these cows are extra special and it was my first time seeing them in real life. It is crazy to me that only two hours outside of London people live right next to animals – so cool to visit a Derbyshire Farm
Then on Sunday afternoon we booked tickets for Kedleston Hall. This gorgeous xx property is part of the National Trust and we had a great afternoon taking in the gorgeous property. You will see below a few of the photos I took of baby lambs who were only a few weeks old – swoon- and some of the gorgeous nature. I also learned a ton more about sheep and how they were labeled – it turns out the grounds of the Hall are so large that this Derbyshire Farm is actually managed by multiple farmers but does not make anything any less cute!
Would you want to visit Kedleston Hall or a Derbyshire Farm?
