Phillip and I belong to the National Trust and at this time of the year you can walk in the actual gardens with the dog (until the end of February). The rest of the year you can only go in after 4.00 p.m.which I can kind of understand as it gets very busy. Sadly as usual there were the naughty dog owners who let their dog off the lead despite being asked at the entrance to keep them on the lead. There were also naughty parents allowing their children to go in areas which are out of bounds at this time of the year! It was a beautiful sunny winter's day so thought I would share some photos with you.
We have walked the grounds before with the dog, up to King Alfreds Tower and seen the obelisk etc, but by the time we had seen everything around the lake, which involved doing the whole thing twice the dog was starting to tire so we stopped for his benefit.
All in all a lovely trip out and highly recommended.
