Sadly it wasn't the warmest Bank Holiday Monday. I noticed more than one Mum hugging themselves to keep warm in the children's play park! Of course, the children didn't notice the coolness and had a great time playing sword fighting in the willow maze, hiding inside hollow tree trunks, balancing on and climbing trees. The adults enjoyed their cups of hot coffee and stroll around the kitchen garden and grounds.
Ickworth is a great day out for all the family and if it wasn't quite so far away I could see it becoming a favourite for us.
