Recently I went on a long weekend trip to Cornwall with my boyfriend Thomas. We both have a National Trust membership so it makes finding hidden gems a lot easier. We both love nature, historical architecture and being in the great outdoors and exploring rural England.
Our first stop was Montacute House in Somerset. It was an ideal place to visit on our road trip to North Cornwall. Being in the middle of our journey with only a little over 2 hours to Bude, Cornwall. I have fallen in love with Montacute House, it has to be one of my most favourite houses I have visited so far with my membership. The gardens were absolutely beautiful it was full with roses and sunflowers and a magnificent orangery room. The Elizabethan architecture is a true masterpiece with its golden hamstone material and grand towering windows overlooking incredible greenery.
The Eden project has been somewhere Thomas and I have wished to visit for a very long time. I can’t wait to visit again in other seasons. It once was a clay querry and now has been transformed into a charitable eco friendly botanical paradise in Cornwall, England. It is a place where you can explore and learn about making our world into a sustainable, environmentally friendly future and connect with different plants from all over the world. Aswell as indulging in yummy food, shopping for beautiful plants and ethical gifts. My favourite part was stepping into the Mediterranean and Rainforest biome where thousands of plants and different environments and climates are held. I found it very inspiring, therapeutic and incrediable to be able to explore this in the heart of Cornwall.
P.S I hope you are inspired by my post and you are enjoying your Summer so far. The second part of our long weekend away will be on the blog very soon.
