My Weekend at The Oast House - National Trust


Last weekend I took the train to Herefordshire to spend the weekend with friends in the beautiful National Trust Oast House to celebrate Sarah's birthday. It's an eighteenth century house on the Brockhampton estate. It had plenty of character and a dresser full of cake and crisps so I was in heaven. Life has been pretty non stop recently due to buying a house and I couldn't wait to escape the city and kick back and 'just be' with some of my best friends. 


The weekend mainly consisted of eating cake, drinking wine, watching Sophie do some weird and wonderful charades and watching chick flicks. We did take a break from relaxing in the house to explore the Brockhampton estate. In the middle of the 1,700 acre site is the charming Lower Brockhampton manor house which is surrounded by a moat and it dates back to the late 14th century. It was a bit chilly so we didn't explore the woodlands in the area and headed back to the Oast house for more tea and cake because you can never have enough tea and cake. 








Why am I still blogging after five years? That would be because I get to spend my time with some of the best people on the planet that I met through blogging. Thank you to SarahMariaKatyRosieSophie, Char, Esther and Lucy for a marvellous weekend!
