Arlington Court National Trust - Devon

Arlington court

When on holiday in Devon this Easter we visited Arlington Court. I have to say I need to thank the weather! It was one of those things where the beach was cloudy but it was nice inland and this,in combination With the fact we have National Trust passes, made us decide to go here. The flyers just talk about the carriage museum. We didn't even make it there as the grounds were so lovely.

Peacocks roamed around the gardens and we went on a long trail. Best of all was the children's playground area. Woods stepping stones, ropes to climb up hills. We could have stayed here for hours.

The boys were excited by Pooh stick bridge. It ended in tears when our sticks seemed to disappear!

Arlington Court was absolutely beautiful and so much more than a carriage museum. Definitely worth a visit if you are in North Devon.

  1. This looks gorgeous - I love that there are so many wonderful National Trust properties to discover. #countrykids

  2. The countryside looks so different back then, it makes me appreciate the seasons, I must say I think the Easter weather so far beats the summer holiday weather! I love the idea of ropes to climb the hills, much more fun than steps and rails! Thank you for sharing on Country Kids.
