Apparently today is the longest day of the year, midsummer or summer solstice. We were definitely out making the most of this glorious sunshine. One of our favourite local spots to enjoy the sun is Polesden Lacey. Such beautiful grounds; lots of space for the little ones to run around and get rid of their excess energy 😁 Hope you are having a good day whatever you are up to.
POLESDEN LACEY - a magnificent, lavish, extravagant and exuberant weekend party house that took a power play to the whole new level. It was owned by the popular and powerful socialite, hostess with the mostess, Margaret Maggie Greville in the early 1900s. Mrs. Greville had an impeccable taste in art, jewelry and luxury lifestyle and was hosting royalty, elite circle, politicians and many other powerful people from aroung the world. In 1923. Mrs. Greville offered Polesden to the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George Vl and Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother) for their honeymoon. A serious case of upstairs downstairs.

What a wonderful father's day weekend - we camped with @emberscamping
for the first time and think we done ok. We stayed at #polesdenlacey
site - We obviously took way to my 'stuff', slept on @bundlebeds
, had pizzas on the first night, BBQ second night, looked up at the stars, started (and kept alight) a fire, relaxed, played and walked until our little legs gave up. We could sit, chat and laugh whilst the kids ran around; kicking balls, pulling each other in the trolley, making friends and enjoying an adventure outside. @mrshhayward @jamesahayward
thanks for giggles, beers and Ferrell fun - already looking for a next weekend free. #gooutsidethelines #camping #emberscamping #outdoors #familycaming #bbq #fire #littleadventures #tent #outside #nationaltrust

Just magical moment to see all the details 🤩
Saturday night vibes Polesden Lacey style! What’s not to love 🍕🍻🙌🏼😍💪🏼
It’s a dream of mine to stay here one day even just for a night. To have access to my favourite rose garden when all the visitors have left and to watch the sun set over the valley. To have the energy to roll down the hills and run back up like I once did and do it all over again until I’ve gained a few grass stains. For laughter and bird song to be the only audible sounds. For now I’ll just have to make do with day dreaming about this tiny place and join the day visitors in wondering what it would be like to look out of that window. 🌿✨
New pink hair and out for birthday wander about Polesden Lacey

Owning a dog can sometimes be a bit of a tie but it has many upsides - companionship, unconditional love and accountability amongst them. And I get to go for a walk every single day and move my body and feel the air on my face. And I know how lucky I am to live so near to beautiful views like this...

Everything looks instantly softer with a bit of fabric. Found this little cloakroom tucked away in a beautiful Edwardian country house. #polesdenlacey #glossestate
