Instead of going inside the house, we headed up through the grounds to the walled garden. This is my favourite spot, sheltered from the wind.
After the walled garden we made our way up to the farm. What with it being lambing season, we couldn't move for lambs and very cute they were too. I had actually forgotten how big the farm area was. As well as lambs we saw chicks, donkeys, cows, sheep and turkeys, many of them rare breeds.
I'm sure I heard somewhere that this weekend is going to relatively balmy... surely not?!
