We love the National Trust

image4

We absolutely love the National Trust and we are not ashamed to admit it. Our friends think we are a bit mad but a Saturday spent at the National Trust going for a super long walk and maybe a visit to the cafe or pub too is our ideal Saturday!

We actually have a life members card which admits 2 people for free which makes our weekends spent at the NT even better as they are free so a cheap weekend for us! We have already written a post about our love for walking, but will highlight why we love it again. Walking is great cardio, its good to get out in the fresh air, we find it excellent therapy and of course its totally free!

I think the reason we love the NT so much is because there are so many different places for us to visit and explore and often there are many already planned walks for us to try out. Then we can end the walk and explore at either a NT cafe or a pub. The NT cafes are great, especially the homemade cakes!

We have decided to make it our new years resolution to visit lots of NT places in 2017 and write lots of posts about our visits. We also want to take lots of pictures on our visits and to show everyone how much fun a visit to the National Trust can be. So you can all look forward to lots of National Trust posts this year!

Why not check our their website and pick a place near you to visit, trust us you won’t regret it!

  1. It’s great to see so much enthusiasm for the outdoors and the National Trust – I’v been visiting National Trust sites since I was a young’un, especially those along the East Anglian Coastline where I grew up, like Blakeney Point and Dunwich – so they mean a lot to me and my family too. I’ve just started a volunteership with the National Trust at the Bath Skyline where we conserve very rare calcareous wild flower meadows. I’m blogging at the moment about my training as a countryside ranger with the Trust, if you wanted to take a look at the kind of things we do. It’s so gorgeous here already and I haven’t even seen it in its full glory when all the flowers are out during the summer months. Have you visited the Skyline before? May/June are the best months to come for the full wildflower effect, if you haven’t, and the 6 mile Skyline trail is a beautiful walk through meadows and woodlands. Anyway, I’m really looking forward to hearing about all your National Trust adventures!
    Best wishes

      1. It is so much fun! We do such a huge range of things on the Skyline from practical ecology and conservation such as grassland and woodland management, building and maintaining ifrastructure for public access such as fixing fences and resurfacing paths to running events like guided walks and woodland activities for kids. So it’s something different with new challenges every day. Loads of physical work that keeps us super fit and spending time encouraging kids to get exctied about nature and the outdoors which is great fun. It’s actually a big reason why I think the National Trust is so great – they dedicate a lot of resource to engaging people, especially children, and teaching them to appreciate and respect the outdoors. Its a wonderful thing to be apart of. Anyway, you’ll see from the blog. Thanks 🙂 I hope you get a chance to visit in the summer.
