Last weekend we paid a visit to Little Moreton Hall, a National Trust property not too far away from Matt’s house in Cheshire. I love going on little day trips at the weekend somewhere a bit different. It’s easy to watch your weekend disappear in a retail park or supermarket and wonder where the day went, but whenever I take the time to go somewhere a bit different I always feel like I’ve had a full, fun weekend and I absolutely love learning things, especially when history is involved.
The house is hundreds of years old and is something people come from all over the country to see as it’s one of the best examples of a half timbered manor house we have left. I loved walking around the rooms and imagining what had gone on in there over the years and feeling the house move a little. The guided tour was really interesting, I think sometimes when you visit a country house or hall you can wander aimlessly through the rooms and just superficially look at them but I’m so glad we listened to the talk, we found out about the family, and saw some really cool details in the house we wouldn’t have known about otherwise, it brought it to life. We ended up driving up to Mow Cop afterwards and we did a video of the day so I’ll put that below! I’m definitely going to be checking out more National Trust properties, especially as the weather warms up. It’s fun to go to London and see the landmarks but sometimes there are hidden gems right under your nose if you fancy a fun day out!
Do you go to National Trust places a lot? Any recommendations you have would be cool! Let me know your favourite thing to do at the weekend!
