Spring Days Out

Spring is most definitely in the air, which means a few more sunnier and slightly less arctic days and you can step out more as a family on the weekend for some quality time together. We’ve done that in consecutive weekends now , which has been lovely. The first weekend we went to the spectacular Harewood House, with it’s magnificent gardens, tranquil lake, brilliantly noisy bird gardens and farm and the high-octane adventure playground.

We enjoyed a lovely boat ride aboard Capability.

The second weekend, the one just gone, we headed out to Temple Newsam, also in Leeds, which is a great option for either a free or at least a reasonably priced day out. You can park for free and enter the extensive grounds for free, with literally acres and acres of room to the kids to run around ride their bikes and spread out for a picnic.

If you don’t mind spending a little bit of loose change then you can purchase a ticket to the lovely Home Farm, a working farm full of life and charm. I let NJ take charge of my camera, and he loved taking pictures of the animals.

There’s often crafts taking place on a weekend and there’s a large, second playground at the bottom of the farm. We had a lovely day both times and the kids were shattered by the time we hit the road home.
I love Spring days out with the family, tell me where you like to go.

    Those sound like fabulous days out – I love the boat ride at Harewood House and my kids would love somewhere like Home Farm. That’s a great photo of the sheep – is that one that NJ took? Thanks for linking up to #FamilyFun 🙂
