We went to Clumber Park in North Nottinghamshire as it isn't too far from us. We hired bikes for a couple of hours and cycled through the forest. I love the smells at this time of year. The pine was very strong, but the forest floor smelled strong and earthy.
When I could in the saddle no more, we wandered around the walled garden. This is slowly being restored to its former glory. Until recently it was a camp site.
The produce in the garden is used in the (highly recommended ) National Trust Tea Room. They do wonderful soup! The flowers in the borders are starting to fade, but still look beautiful.
