What wonderful colours, I feel inspired to create a painting of this view, or maybe a textile piece. I never can resist stopping the car and pulling over to take photographs that inspire me to be creative. Sometimes it’s worth taking a moment and being thankful.
Another area of natural beauty well worth getting in the car for and donning on walking boots to recharge the old batteries. I would imagine when snow falls this view would be outstanding. When you are a the top it really does feel like you are on top of the world.
I love this place, I try to go at least once a year. The house and gardens are being renovated by English Heritage and they have just finished a seven month restoration on the main attraction. The Perseus and Andromeda fountain. It is spectacular when it is erupting a huge spout of cascading water over the figures. Everyone gasps as they look down from the ruins and see a truly beautiful site in front of them. The gardens are starting to take shape and is a great safe place for families to have a picnic.
There are also walks of varying lengths which are not too strenuous for all. There is the old boat house, a play area and a most magnificent church. To top it off tucked behind the church is a tearoom which serve delicious homemade cakes which you can eat inside or outside under trees.
The history of Witley Court is fascinating, destroyed by fire and once overrun with bikers at one point, all the information you need to know is on a free audio guide.
Witley Court has a romance about it that draws you back time after time.
So if you are looking for a day out with the family or a walk with the dog I cannot recommend Witley Court enough.
