Days out - Knightshayes Court, Devon

Hello there,

Earlier this year we spent a (soggy) week in Devon - which looking back seemed to be a warning of the weather ahead for the year!

Despite that, we still managed to get out and about and one of the places on our list was Knighthayes Court in Devon. This is a beautiful Victorian gothic revival house which had been home to Joyce Wethered, regarded as golf's greatest British female player. We last visited here 11 years ago and it seems to have been on our list of `places we should go back to' ever since.

It has the most beautiful house and gardens. Perfect for history lovers and gardeners (so that was us both happy then).



Am I the only one who wishes they could stay the night in houses like this?





I need a plant like this for home for all future blog photos please.



The grounds were beautiful - and one of the best things? There were families and children enjoying it all. No keep off the grass signs, it was all to be enjoyed.



What better way to end the day?


Let's hope it's not another 11 years before we visit again.

Thanks for reading

Cathy
