We were on the freeway heading south when we saw a sign, our favorite brown sign with the oak-leaf logo! Yes another national trust site, lets go! We love free national trust visits so we followed the sign off and out to Wimpole Estate, which we thought might just be a nice farm. We were wrong.

This gargantuan property had a big stately mansion, a formal garden, a walled garden and orchard, and its very own feature gothic castle ruin (Which is fake, 1700's).

The tourists were dense because of the Bank holiday, but we had a great time marveling at the house and especially the gardens. Nothing is more appealing to us than having a big beautiful, edible garden! We wanted to steal herbs but they were hard to get to and there were eyes everywhere…
The house was owned by Rudyard Kipling’s daughter, and was a Georgian styled mansion, with no expense spared.

An hour down the freeway we got to another great national forest called Hatsfield forest. Where we got to enjoy a beautiful walk seeing wild deer, hares, and squirrels. The fields were covered in dense buttercup flowers, and we ran together through the yellow pastures together.
The sun was nice and bright and in between cold gusts of wind we got to photosynthesize, and even hug some old oaks. At least we’re making new friends!

Tomorrow we get to meet up with our human friends, Darren and Kim in London. Bigwig love driving in cities!
