Yesterday, me and my best bud Ashleigh planned to have a lovely girly catch up and, as the weather was actually quite pleasant, we decided to go to Arley Hall and Gardens. Yes, we are both 19 and still students but why go somewhere mad busy when you can go and have a look at some pretty flowers and drink tea? Exactly.
Arley Hall is a country house based in Arley, Cheshire and it consists of a huge manor house surrounded by the most beautiful and bright gardens. I had visited two times before: once for a Christmas carol evening (which was very adorable) and once for the Simply Cheshire Gift Fair (which again, was very adorable). I actually written a post including a little bit about the Simply Cheshire Fair so I will link that here. It’s on every year so you can have a read and see if it sound like your kind of thing. But, although I have visited twice, I had never actually been around the gardens.
When I arrived, the walk from the car park to the main entrance had already blew me away. Something that you will see is that the gardeners and landscapers really thought about every single placement of every single flower and tree. It was stunning. After grabbing our tickets, we went for a walk around the grounds. I could talk you through every section but I think a picture speaks a thousand words so I will just include some of the pictures I taken here so you can have a peek:
After having a look around the beautiful gardens, we went and had a lovely cup of tea in the Gardener’s Kitchen that is also on site. It had a lovely rustic theme inside and the food on offer looked incredible. We sat on a table upstairs on the balcony area but there was loads of seating downstairs and outside. I didn’t take any pictures of it because it was busy and I didn’t fancy asking every single person whether they wouldn’t mind me taking a picture haha.
Arley Hall is open from Monday to Sunday 10am til 5pm throughout the months of March to October but, if you do plan on visiting, double check on the website that they don’t have any private events. If you would like to know anything else about Arley Hall then you can go to their website HERE and have a look. They constantly have events or something happening around the year to make your visit extra special. It was a lovely day out and I think I would adore bringing my Mum to show her how stunning it was.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s blog post. I love writing about something I have done because I can really pour my enjoyment of the day out onto here. Plus, it’s nice to have a day out where everybody was calm, quiet and relaxed instead of rushed, busy and moody. There was a lovely atmosphere and it really made the day extra-enjoyable. I will see you again tomorrow with day #27!
