Bowood House cont.

Although Bowood House if only about 30 miles from Bristol I have never visited this pretty Estate. My family have been several times and the main attraction for the children is the adventure playground which I showed photos of yesterday. It is very pretty and you can take a walk to the lake (I didn't this time but I do intend to return to explore some more). I walked over to look at the house and the formal terraced gardens and here are some of the photos I took:






For the history of Bowwood Estate look here. I was not able to get a shot of the whole of the house but if you are interested you will see it in the link.

sam shame on you a little culture and a nice walk is good for you

steffi it is quite a small estate so easy to walk around and something for the whole family. Although I think most families are attracted to the adventure playground for the children.

That's brought back memories... I went to Bowood several times when I was younger, my Gran lives near Swindon and took us over there when we stayed with her.

The playground was fantastic!
