Earlier this month we headed down to Somerset for three blissful days, taking in as much of the beautiful countryside and connecting with nature as much as possible. On our last day after checking out of our self catering loft at Huntstile organic farm we decided to first visit a Fyne Court, a National Trust site a few miles away, before heading back home to Wales and we are so glad we did.
Before leaving the farm we did a last minute check over of the car as we were in a rural location to start with and Fyne Court was also located in the countryside and both were a few hours drive from home. Making sure the car is in tip top condition during our road trips is always a must and taking basic autocare precautions such as checking the oil and water is something we always do
Set in a rural hamlet, Fyne Court is a stunning and free National trust estate with a courtyard that houses a cosy little cafe, lots of walks and woodland to explore, a folly, boathouse and lake and was the perfect place to run off some steam before our car journey home. In the court yard was a large tree that had been cut down and the tree and stump made a great natural climbing frame.
We decided to do one of the shorter marked walks that took us around one of the ponds where we spotted some damsel flies and as it's so far from any kind of busy road you can hear all sorts of birdsongs from up in the trees. This is the type of place we would visit every weekend if we lived close by and would of loved to have had a full day to explore. After our walk we popped into the cafe for some coffee and a slice of cake, the perfect way to end our trip to Somerset, an area of the UK we have totally fallen in love with.
