Charlecote Park

What a lovely day, and we dodged the rain!

Today Kate took me to
Charlecote Park in Warwickshire - so pretty.

It is a 16th century country house on the banks of the River Avon, with deer in the parkland and a beautiful garden. We also sampled the wonderful culinary delights in the Orangery restaurant.

We went to see Charlecote because they hold Art in the Park which I hope to be involved in. They have included many great local artists’ work including
Rachael Carter; a sculptor working in willow and steel.

We called in at
The Arter in Old Town Stratford on the way home. It was Kate’s first visit and she fell in love. The gallery is in Hall’s Croft, Shakespeare’s sister’s home.

Definitely try to visit both if you can!

Thanks Kate for taking me.
