You know when you are a fully fledged grown up when you become a member of the National Trust. My friends and family all think it is hilarious that I always become a member to places. Ness Gardens, Bodelwyddan Castle, Chester Zoo and now the National Trust to add to the list. In all fairness, they are definitely worth it as we are always out and about and I only work 2 days. I have 3 days just me and Harri so we are often pottering places together.
On our quest to try different places to visit we decided to try Erddig which is fairly close to us, it is part of the National Trust so as usual my husband gets talked into signing up for membership. It consisted of a home and gardens to run around and explore, there is a really lovely park made from tree trunks and branches which the girls were delighted with. We had a good look around and, whilst the home was not all that child friendly, the outdoor space was perfect. They had a trail on for the Children with stickers being awarded upon completion (what child doesn’t love stickers?) and an area of twigs and sticks for den making. There was even a hut where you could sit and colour in for a bit – which was perfect when the rain started.
What suits us is some days we can visit and stay there until it gets dark and others when we just like to potter around for a couple of hours before feeling ready to leave. This is why membership is perfect for us.
I am looking forward to returning to Erddig when it’s a bit warmer for some picnics and play.
