Myself and my wonderful friends all had a free day and we decided to take a little road trip and use our Natural Trust memberships, we travelled to Calke Abbey, a beautiful place in derby that really was stunning. We had a little nosey through the unstably home, with incredible high ceilings and 20th century collections, it was filled with antiques and we learned a lot about the home and the family that lived there. We explored the surrounding areas, filled with beautiful gardens, a lake, and interesting discoveries like a grotto and an ice house. It was so much fun, we grabbed some food to take with us and spent the whole day wandering and exploring the grounds, I took quite a few pictures so I thought it was a good idea to write a little blog post and share them with you. It really is a wonderful place to visit, If you ever get the chance, make sure you do!
