Yesterday, we had planned to meet up with Sam, Anna and baby Issac for a picnic, though following Thursday's thunderstorms we thought it might not be a great idea. So I suggested we took a trip to a NT property, as I had two free passes for friends.
Baddersley Clinton is in Warwickshire, so not too far from the Stephenson's, we estimated it would take around half an hour to get there. However, thanks to Papa's sat nav being completely ridiculous, it took us a little while longer!
First stop was lunch, as the little one needed feeding, and us big ones were a bit peckish too! Louie decided that he wasn't very hungry and that the A-frame board was so much more interesting than pasta salad, sandwiches and fruit.

|Teeny Weeny Doors - I didn't have any problems though!|

|This room was really wonky!|
|And it had a moat|
It was particularly apt for us don't you think! Inside the house, there was a 'Bee Trail' for children, and although Mr Bee was probably far too young, he loved spotting the Bees, shouting out 'bumble beeeee' every time!
