The Tea Room

Harwick Hall

These are the first of the photos that I took on my mini break to Nottingham to celebrate my Mum becoming a lady of a certain age.  The first photo is of the Tea Room which was the first port of call when we arrived at Hardwick Hall.

You can read about the weekend here and you can read about Bess who built Hardwick Hall here.

    It may surprise you but this is the place where I did most of my Christmas shopping on a saturday in December last year. I was taken by a South Yorkshire close friend & didn’t know about this place and had it confused in my mind with Haddon Hall. I opted for the second image also. As a point of interest, the entrance fee was less expensive during the Christmas fayre period although that was reflected in the the limited opening time of the house … worth it nonetheless.

      This was my second visit and the view in the second photo wasn’t available to me last time. They were working developing the stable are which was not previously part of the visit.

      Shopping in a National Trust property sounds perfect to me. I am not a one for visiting the shops.
