Our walk took us around the outskirts of the grounds, so it meant apart from the £2 parking fee it was all free! The house and gardens are quite expensive for a visit and have to admit to never having been in.

Hunting lodge and halfway point for our walk
We stumbled upon the Labrador trials in the grounds, teams from allover Europe came including Switzerland and Germany. The dogs had to run into the trees and find a dummy and bring it back. It was quite busy with lots of people and dogs.
We had a stop for lunch to rest our weary legs, hard work walking uphill in such warm weather.
What a beautiful view for our picnic spot!
