An Afternoon Ramble
Old Wardour Castle
Old Wardour Castle was built in the 14th century as a luxury residence for lavish entertainment (in the words of The English Heritage) and is surrounded by beautiful countryside it's a perfect place to enjoy a walk and even possesses its own grotto (yes a grotto, I was sold on that alone.) The children, particularly Oli, really enjoyed running free around the grounds and exploring the castle, the ruins of which are a labyrinth of winding stairwells and little chambers all waiting to be discovered. I love anything historical so this was the perfect afternoon for me and the children were full of laughter as they discovered chamber after chamber of hiding places, with not a plastic piece of play equipment in sight! After a few hours we were travelling back in the car with two rosy cheeked sleeping little ones - bliss.
