Sudeley Castle, Cotswolds

England really is the land of kings, princesses and fairy tales! Why is that? Well, last Bank holiday Sunday we stumbled across the entrance to Sudeley Castle and had a long walk around the grounds. So we found out that this magnificent blend of manicured gardens, old castle ruins, standing working quarters, pheasantry and chapel are actually very much inhabited by the family who owns it! I don't know how much they actually get to enjoy the grounds but we certainly did!

The gardens are a lovely amalgam of long stretches of lawns, rustic grasslands under big trees and intriguing, geometric arrangements, around water features. Pure bliss on a sunny spring day! If it's raining...just stay in the village pub for cream tea instead! This place has so much of its' history interconnected with Henry VII and Catherine Parr, in particular. She resided here after her marriage to Thomas Seymour. See how history crawls out of every corner in this part of the English countryside?
