A day well spent at Trentham Gardens, brings a week of content. Amid the madness, the craziness and the chaos of modern day life that we all get drawn into, is desire, a yearning, a need to remember who we really are. As a busy working mummy, where week days run by military precision what I enjoy most about a weekend is enjoying life at a slower pace.
I love these days so much, cocooned in our little family bubble is the best place to be. This is why it is so necessary to have a haven, a place where time goes by at natures pace, a place where you can unwind, a place where you can let your imagination roam free and most important to me, a place I can make memories with my family.
Like a good friend, Trentham Gardens is a place to spend time for any reason or no reason. If you are feeling reflective on a summers afternoon, sit on the terrace of the Totally Delicious café with a cup of tea, the warm breeze on your face and peer into the distance. This is the perfect end to a summers amble through the wild flower meadow, where you can’t help but feel you have stepped in to a Monet’s Field of Poppies painting – once through the meadow, take in a deep breath and gaze across the lake where you will find yourself surrounded by the most magical and truly fascinating 15 foot dandelion sculptures.
Wait, there’s more…
If you feel spritely on a cold winters morning, dress the family up and march around the lake, hugging a cup of hot chocolate whilst completing the fairy trail. If you are feeling playful, enjoy laughter and adventure in the garden maze or lastly enjoy a traditional Sunday Roast dinner at the cottage style decorated Joe’s Kitchen where children are welcomed with open arms and the drinks are served in mason jars.
These are a few of my favourite things to do at Trentham Gardens, I love to visit all year round. The mystery of the winter, the bright colours of summer and the magic of Autumn as you see the seasons change before your eyes leaves me with no choice other than to renew our annual passes again in April. We find the most cost effective way is to use our Tesco Clubcard Vouchers which we transfer into days out vouchers.
On Mother’s Day this year why not treat your much loved mummy to a day out at Trentham Gardens. I love that I can look back on each visit and I am instantly transported right back to a moment in time, that often holds a memory of something as ordinary as a day out, one of simple pleasures but where my mummy heart is overflowing.
