It’s moving day today. We are staying near Church Stretton in a little village with the strange name of Leebotwood. We have to be off-site by 11am so have some hours to kill. First stop is Sainsbury’s in Shrewsbury for a few fresh staples and then it’s back on ourselves a bit to the closest NT place Attingham Park and it’s 18C Regency Mansion. We’d never heard of it beforehand but it’s incredibly popular. There’s a huge carpark and we have to travel to the edge to find a spot for Luci. Free entry for us which was appreciated as it’s nearly £15 per adult entry fee.
There’s a house and extensive grounds and gardens. We visit the house first as it’s timed entry and it’s a bit disappointing. We’ve obviously gotten a little spoilt with our NT visits lately.
Most people seem to be using the gardens for dog walking, exercise and fresh air. The walled garden is a highlight full of colour and life, fruit and veg. There’s also a huge play field for kids and families with lots of equipment and games that look very popular.
Our visit ends with a cuppa and half a sandwich each and a shared piece of cake.
Onto the campsite in Leebotwood which is only 20 minutes away. We enjoy a couple of games of Rummikub again and share the spoils so it’s now two games all. Bought lasagna and garlic bread for dinner and a movie washed down with a G&T. Life on the road is not too shabby.
