Blob Bear: 
So today we went on a trip to Sizergh castle! ๐Ÿฐ Itโ€™s in Kendal in the Lake District - and itโ€™s absolutely stunning! We had a look around the gardens first which looked even more beautiful because of the weather โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŒป oh and the strangest thing happened - we were taking pictures in the gardens minding our own business and this random cat jumped out of the bushes shoving my Dad out the way to claim his bench back! He was the friendliest cat weโ€™ve ever met, he let me stroke him for a little while and wasnโ€™t even phased by anybody! Later, we learnt that the cat โ€˜Charlieโ€™ actually lived within the castle grounds and just roams around there everyday, so is very used to people ๐Ÿฑ the castle itself is amazing too, weโ€™ve had a wonderful day ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’› #teddybear #bearlove #teddygoals #teddiesofinsta #teddiesofinstagram #travellingteddy #teddytravels #buildabear #bab #babw #castle #castle #sizergh #sizerghcastle #nationaltrust #gardens #flowers

Visited Sizergh Castle this afternoon where we learned that this inlay paneling was once sold by the original owner to the V&A museum where it lived for 100 years until it was returned to its rightful home. It is said to be the finest example of it's kind and people come from all over the world to see it!! .

Summer is back ... day out to Sizergh Castle and Garden. The Strickland family has lived at Sizergh for more than 750 years, and it remains their home today. A castle filled with much wooden panelling and genuinely old things! #nationaltrust #sizergh #daysout #oldhouses #buildingsofinstagram

My favourite planting combo from #sizergh .Salvia โ€˜Amistadโ€™ highlighted by a tangerine Crocosmia foil.  I #love a super contrasting combo, the more contrasting the better.  Harmonising has its place but I always remember the ones that get in your face like this. #borderdesign #plantcombinations #planting #plants #nikon #pic #picoftheday #plant #salvia #crocosmia #herbaceous #herbaceousborder #herbaceousplant #herbaceousperennial #contrast #nationaltrust
Just a shrubby tree and a pile of stones on our farm? Nope... This is a multi-phase burial cairn found to contain 13 individuals.

Bones were radiocarbon dated to contain both Neolithic and Iron Age bodies! .

Ancient Sizergh Castle,  everything that was done, was very well done, with amazing attention to detail, especially the planting combinations. Susan, the lovely head Gardener has achieved so much with her team. I didnt get a decent snap, but the new Fernery looks like its been there for centuaries.  The sunken limestone garden is breathtaking and the kitchen garden/pottager was dailed in! Yet another reason to get a @nationaltrust membership. #sizergh #sizerghcastle #cumbria #garden #historicgarden #gardens #studytour

Yesterday we had a whistle stop tour of the beautiful @nationaltrust Sizergh Castle and Garden. It was a last minute decision to stop on the way home from Wales, we all needed to stretch the legs and escape the car for some fresh air. The boys loved it and were very impressed with the enormous sunflowers.

Day 231 - So after spending most of the day in bed yesterday and still not feeling great it was good to get out for some fresh air today. We love the wild trail at Sizergh and the best thing is it's free. Packed a picnic, packed the car (with kids) and off we went. Kids loved the adventure and challenges. Then back home to chill for the rest of the day.

Impromtu little trip out to the Wild Trail at Sizergh Barn to get some fresh air. Had lots of fun, very muddy and we managed to dodge the rain too. Xx #sizergh #wildtrailwalk #muddy #freshair #lastminutedecision #kids #cousins #fun #summerholidays #summerholidayfun
Big kids with big sticks. Nothing beats a bit of family time to round off a weekend .

Sizergh Castle is a wonderful place to visit if you happen to be up that way. The gardens are beautiful and varied.๐Ÿ’™โ €

โ€˜Private!โ€™ - flower covered steps at the @nationaltrust Sizergh Castle Estate in Cumbria UK ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง .
โ€˜Beautiful medieval house, with rich gardens and estate

This imposing house stands proud at the gateway to the Lake District.

Its rich and beautiful garden includes a pond, lake, a national collection of hardy ferns and a superb limestone rock garden.
.
Still lived in by the Strickland family, Sizergh has many tales to tell and certainly feels lived in, with centuries-old portraits and fine furniture sitting alongside modern family photographs.

Stunning allotment and gardens in the grounds of Sizergh Hall in the Lake District. In the autumn, our Art for Enjoyment group will revisit the theme of 'Harvest' and we will create artwork inspired by home grown veg, gourds, pumpkins, leaves, berries, seed heads and flowers.

Oh summer, wherefore art thou? Currently longing for the days when the sun shone for more than two minutes between downpours.

Back when we werenโ€™t quite so sodden we had a lovely wander around Sizergh Castle gardens. Itโ€™s a favourite Sunday afternoon jaunt and thereโ€™s something different to see every season.

The pele tower is the oldest part of the castle, constructed in the 1300s to resist border raids. It was upgraded to a fashionable Elizabethan country house by Walter Strickland in the 1550s, complete with ornate carvings and inlaid interiors in pale poplar and dark bog-oak. The garden features a 1920s limestone rockery, tennis court, kitchen garden, woodland garden, stumpery and two lakes.

If youโ€™re in the area itโ€™s definitely worth a visit, you could easily spend the whole day there and if not, @lowsizerghbarn is just down the road to watch the cows milking while you devour a cup of tea and some cake!

Whereโ€™s your favourite Sunday afternoon jaunt? Do you prefer a bracing walk, a trip to a gallery or a cup of coffee somewhere? Let me know in the comments below - Iโ€™m always after more tips!

Would definitely recommend if you have little explorers with energy to burn!

Which way is the right way?!? I cant lie... this was very stressful... Oliver kept hiding within the maize and if it wasn't for his yellow wellies I think he'd still be in there... #lakelandmaizemaze#sizergh#lakedistrict#fundaysout#family#funwithfriends#myboy#tantrums#lifeofa3yearold#littlegrouse
