Want a day out without the hassle and expense of driving?
We visit National Trust houses and gardens using public transport.
We are blessed in this part of the world with quite a lot of National Trust properties within easy reach. Buckland Abbey, Cotehele and Saltram are on our doorstep whilst there are places like Lanhydrock, A la Ronde and St Michael’s Mount just a train tide away.
Occasionally we may visit an English Heritage or a privately owned property such as Powderham Castle. All you need is a bit of enthusiasm, a bus pass and a National Trust membership to have a cheap and fun day out.
Our next outing is to Cotehele on Friday 15th November to see them putting the finishing touches to the famous garland. Come and see how it is “built”
