Wallington – beautiful now
Stunning in the Autumn
I had the absolute pleasure of visiting a National Trust property – Wallington House and gardens.
Not 20 miles away from my new front door, I’d never had the opportunity to explore this wonderful place (even though my parents must visit every other month).
Wallington is the much-loved home to generations of the unconventional Trevelyan family. As you’d expect from a National Trust property, the house is perfectly preserved and transports you back in time with each room you step in. Look out for the William Morris wallpaper and the huge pre-Raphaelite paintings around the Central Hall.
The Trevelyans loved being outdoors and close to nature and I could have wandered around the lawns, lakes, woodland and parkland for days.
But my new, all time favourite place to be is the beautiful walled garden hidden in the woods. I oooed and ahhhed around it and decided that one day I’d love a wildflower patch and garden just like it (I can dream right..?).
What I am most looking forward to is visiting again in the Autumn when the leaves all change colour. It will I expect, be even more glorious.
