Family days out in Staffordshire – Trentham Gardens
We have had an absolutely lovely day out at Trentham Gardens today, it’s only the second time we have visited the gardens, which is crazy seeing as it’s only about a 40 minute drive from us. The last time we went was last year when Ava was pretty teeny so I was really excited to take her again now she’s toddling about and it’s safe to say she’s had the absolute best time.
Theres lots to see and do for little ones and big ones, you can get lost in the flower gardens, stroll around the lake, hunt for fairies, go on a mini train ride, take a boat to the other side of the lake, brave the barefoot walk and kiddies can play to their hearts content on the brilliant playground complete with not one but three sandpits! We live quite a way from the seaside so it’s nice for Ava to get a chance to play in the sand.
We took a picnic for lunch however the barbecue at the restaurant in the gardens was awfully tempting, it smelt amazing!
Before you get into the gardens there is a shopping village full of quaint little shops and eateries, a look in the bear shop is a must, although we always end up coming out with a new one! We ate at Joes kitchen later on in the day and the food was lovely and service was excellent.
The gardens are situated next to Trentham Monkey Forest which is a brilliant day out in itself and you can get a joint ticket to enter the Monkey Forest and the gardens. We are planning on taking Ava to see the monkeys in the next few weeks so look out for that blog post.
We love getting out and about as a family and Trentham Gardens is the perfect place for curious little minds to run wild. I made a little video of our day which you can watch here
