Windmill Hill City Farm, Bristol


I've known about Windmill Hill City Farm for a long time ago but until recently I'd never been. Not long ago the Bedminster based farm followed me on Instagram, I duly followed back and since have been itching to pay them a visit to see the place for myself. This seemed like the perfect thing to do a couple of weekends ago to make the most of that lovely late September sun (hey, remember that?!?). 

I was impressed with how big the place is; much bigger than I expected. We spent a lovely couple of hours there checking out all the animals, wondering around the allotment garden (they have pumpkins!) and stopping for a coffee and cake in their cafe before we were on our way. A lovely way to spend a Sunday, we will definitely visit again. 

Windmill Hill City farm also run courses, community events, a nursery and seem like all round good guys! So do check out their website, windmillhillcityfarm.org.uk, or pay them a visit yourself!

In the Potting Shed at the National Trust : Tyntesfield, Bristol - Spring 2014

        
   
Seeing as it's Thursday here's a little throwback to earlier in the year - 20th of April according to Instagram - back when it felt like spring was never going to happen let only the epic summer we've had. My brother was up for the weekend and it was raining hard on the Sunday so of course we decided to head to a local National Trust property for a freezing cold walk!

Despite the weather we had a lovely time looking around the grounds and kitchen gardens. I think the lack of photos of Tyntesfield House itself may be due to my fingers being too numb and being desperate to get inside - but the house is stunning. As the website says its gothic style complete with spiralling turrets give the feel of a fairytale castle - think Beauty and the Beast! Inside was great too. The National Trust have set the rooms up to evoke different eras of the house's history which makes for a much more interesting visit. I love a National Trust property at the best of times but this one is particularly fun. Although, I've now been there twice in miserable weather! As it's just down the road and we're NT members I should definitely make the effort to go when the sun is shining.
