It was so reenergising to have the sun on our faces again today. We drove up to Temple Newsam, one of Leeds famous stately homes, Tudor-Jacobean mansion. It’s recently been restored and can be hired out for weddings. It has acres of sprawling landscaped gardens and lakes, flower gardens and a farm! It’s always worth a drive out, it’s free parking and even on the busiest days you can always find a spot to park. I met Nic from work and spent time chatting and watching the kids roll down the hills.
