I'm back again for round two of my photos from Shropshire, to sum up how we spent our last two days of our week away. I've tried not to make this one quite so picture heavy.
On our last full day in Shropshire we headed to another National Trust property - Berrington Hall, an impressive Georgian Manor House nestled in imposing parkland, complete with beautiful lakes.
Having always been a Jane Austen fan this one appealed to me. You can totally see Mr Darcy striding up from that lake, barging past a couple of sheep, right?
We explored the house and gardens thoroughly, enjoying the relative peace and quite compared to National Trust properties in The South.
I was taken with the attention to detail in the interiors; I'm always a sucker for bit of marble and a decorative ceiling.
The whole place, though imposing, had a calm atmosphere. Only the downstairs rooms are open to the public - some of the family still live in some of the upstairs of the house. So if you're partial to a Georgian Bedroom, like me, you may be slightly disappointed.
On our final day, we stopped for a coffee on our way out of Ludlow, pictured above. Then we headed towards Oxfordshire, having planned to stop off along our way for more sight-seeing, not wanting to accept that our holiday was over. We really like to eek it out.
In Oxfordshire we headed to Grey's Court - another beautiful National Trust property. Photography wasn't allowed inside the house but I wanted to share the exterior with you. The property is just utterly charming and well worth a visit.
If you have the opportunity to go it's I'd recommend it, inside it has a real family home feel and it makes it so interesting and relaxing to explore.
Grey's Court was our last stop on our journey before heading home. We had the most lovely week exploring Shropshire (And Oxfordshire) and returned feeling thoroughly relaxed. Looking back at these pictures has made me re-live it all over again - and look forward even more to taking some more time off to explore a different place!
