Kingston Lacy Woodlands

Hello once again from Lime Tree Cottage. We had a nice quiet Tuesday, how was your day? After a busy day yesterday with lots of travelling we decided to keep it somewhat low key today. On checking our National Trust handbook we saw that Kingston Lacy wasn’t too far away so we decided to give that a go. We visited this national trust property last time we were in Dorset on our way home, but we were all happy to return again.

And obviously its a little bit different this time around because we’ve got this one, who naturally isn’t allowed in the house with all those precious treasures and ornaments.

And actually I forgot to mention in my post yesterday that this little lady behaved absolutely fantastically considering that she is not used to cities and continuous big crowds of people. She is such a confident little puppy and I was so proud of her yesterday in Bath. So today we gave Polly a little treat and took her for a lovely walk in the woodlands around Kingston Lacy.

The woodlands were lovely, with enormous old trees towering over us and providing plenty of cool shade as we made our way round the trail slowly.

Polly absolutely loves her walks and today was no different with skipping about here and there and sniffing galore.

The first thing she took a liking to on today’s was the sheep, they received a little bark.

I suppose she’s probably never seen sheep before? They must be very confusing for such a little pug. Aha.

So must funny statues be confusing to a pug.

I have to laugh at how little Polly looks next to them! Open-mouthed smile

As we went round the trail we got a glimpse of some of the formal gardens.

And by the time we were finished this afternoon we had done a total of just over 3 miles.

Although we have visited Kingston Lacy before we made it a completely different day out by doing the woodland trail. The house doesn’t open until Wednesday anyway, but because we’re staying so close we may just go back for a visit one more time to have a look around.

We have another busy day on the agenda tomorrow though…..Beaulieu
