This was in fact our second visit to Cliveden within a week but with a lot of rain and soaring temperatures between the two trips, the whole estate had finally bloomed when we arrived today - everything from blossom to bluebells, none of which had been there just a few days before.

The thing I love most about Cliveden is, despite having visited a fair few number of times over the last 15 years, there's always something new to discover and two trips are never the same. Today was the first time we headed onto the rolling lawns (having discovered step free access) and we also uncovered a garden that we'd never been in before all before we actually left the official gardens to find the bluebells in the estates woodland. Of course, we always make time for the tea room and storybook playground which easily makes this one of my most treasured National Trust properties.
