Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal

It’s very very late, but today my sister and I took my mum out for a belated birthday/mother’s day out. The weather has been really sunny and warm all week, so it’s bloomin’ typical that today it would decide to be cloudy and miserable. When we walked down to the Abbey and sat down to start our picnic and it started raining, I wanted to scream!

Thankfully the rain didn’t last too long, but the clouds did stay around all day, until we got in the car to go home that is! But we did have patches of sunshine and we did manage to sit and eat a windy but dry picnic, so it wasn’t too bad!

In the end, I walked just over 10,000 steps as we walked the loop from the Abbey to the tearooms at Studley Royal and back again, stopping on the way for a cuppa and a nice (huge) slice of flapjack of course, a visit to a NT property wouldn’t be complete without tea and cake!
