Sewerby Hall

Rosie and I went over to stay with my parents for a few days this week as Dave was away for work. Rosie had a great time playing with her Nana and Grandpa and despite the weather (which was pretty awful) managed to spend some time on the beach while I went to Scarborough for a window shop. I had a good browse in one of my favourites, Bespoke Country Collection, although all I came out with was a fat quarter of fabric and the good news that they had opened a shop in York.

Thursday we went to Sewerby Hall for the morning as there was a break in the rain. They have a small Childrens Zoo and Rosie really enjoyed looking at all the animals, the Llama's in particular were a big hit!

After the zoo we went for a stroll round the gardens, there is a lovely walled garden with lots of carpet bedding and topiary. The penstemons where looking stunning.

And the Rose garden, we were a few weeks too late to get the full glory.
