Croome - National Trust
One of our family outings this week has been to Croome National Trust in Worcestershire. We managed to book tickets over the weekend for Monday so there are definitely more tickets becoming available for National Trust places.
We picked one of the hottest days to go which in hindsight wasn't our best idea.
The walk around the lake is all one way and is approximately a mile and a half. On an ordinary day this would be no problem but it was hard work in the heat.
There are lots of places to stop on the way around. We stopped part way round and found a shaded spot to sit and have a drink and a snack. It was very much needed as we were all hot and bothered. There were a few whinges from the children but because of the one way system we had to keep on going.
At one point along the walk there are two routes that you can choose. We chose the shorter route which was also the wheelchair/pushchair friendly route.
The views are incredible and on a cooler day would be a beautiful walk. Near the end we chose the route that took us by the Rotunda. It was the longer route but it is also the wheelchair/pushchair friendly route. All the accessible routes are clearly signposted which makes the whole walk perfect for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
At the end we went to the cafe for a well earned cold drink and ice cream. The massive bonus is that some National Trust properties are taking part in the Government's 'Eat Out to Help Out' scheme which made our treat an absolute bargain.
The play area and RAF Museum are both closed but the shop and cafe are open.
Don't forget your masks as you need them for in the cafe.
Croome is about 40 minutes from Stratford upon Avon so is easily accessible.
We will definitely be heading back when the weather isn't quite so hot.
