I pack my days off with as many activities as humanly possible, I wake up ridiculously earlier ready to take on the world so imagine how my happy smiling face soon turned into a frown when I pulled back my curtains to see pouring rain and big grey clouds. Not ready to stay inside and give into the miserable winter months, I wrapped up warm and jumped into my car.
Not knowing where to go I just drove and before I knew it I was at the England/Wales border. And there in the distance was just what I was looking for, a beautiful golden light shining down on Wales. I drove until I caught a glimpse of a tourist sign and before I knew it i was at Erddig house.
With it being the winter months for the national trust only part of the house is open, however the part that is open is well worth a visit and has some lovely story’s about servants and grounds keepers that worked at the estate.
For the first time in my life I am seriously dreading winter and being stuck indoors, if someone had told me this time last year that I would be sad about spending winter indoors I would have rolled around on the floor laughing. What a difference a year makes.
