We have had a brief but enjoyable trip to Durham to see my brother and his family, and while there we took the opportunity to visit Crook Hall. This is a little haven near the busy city centre, a medieval hall and later house with spectacular gardens. There was a bit of rain while we were there but we managed to avoid the worst of it! Just a few pictures to give you a flavour of the place:
By the visitor centre – a bank of wildflowers
Little sculptures everywhere!
In the Shakespeare garden
Lots of paths, lots of mystery
Little “rooms” everywhere, with tables set for tea – you can book afternoon tea and have it served to you in the garden
The Cathedral Garden – with a view of the cathedral
And no water feature is complete without a troll bridge
So if you find yourself in Durham, do pop in – it’s lovely!
