Wanaka tree

Finally this is Dyrham Park

You may remember, dear readers, how, some weeks ago I set off to visit Dyrham Park near Bath, only to find myself in the wrong county at the wrong country house. Well, a couple of week-ends ago I had another try, and guess what - I actually got there. All on my own, without any superficial or technical aids, without map or much common sense I drove straight to Dyrham Park. I didn't go wrong, I didn't get lost, I didn't even take very long to get there. And, more importantly, I really liked it. An interesting looking house with gardens all set in a huge swathe of brilliant park land; great views out over the surrounding countryside and lots of hills on a sunny afternoon. As you will gather, I had never been there before, in fact I have to confess that I hadn't even heard of it until a couple of months ago. Now I have another place to add to my list of favourites, a place I would happily take friends and visitors to - so if you want to visit Dyrham Park, first come and visit blur-kiwi!
