Newstead Abbey...


Dan has been so good since I have started doing fashion posts, he's always suggesting places to go on Sundays to give me a change of scenery for my backgrounds and it also means that we make an effort to do something on our day off together, 2 birds, one stone! This week Dan decided to take me to Newstead Abbey in Nottinghamshire, which is the old Manor House in which Lord Byron used to live, as children we were both brought here by our families during the school holidays but had never really appreciated the beauty of this place. Previously a priory, the abbey is now publicly owned by Nottinghamshire County Council and has a museum containing Byron memorabillia. After walking around the calming gardens in the sun, me and Dan decided to walk around the museum, we decided to go around on our own instead of on a tour, which was pretty fun, until I thought we were lost, anxiety and being lost do not mix well, the building is so quiet and eerie and we were walking around for so long before we finally found the exit. As beautiful as it is, I was glad to leave! If you want to learn more about Newstead Abbey, take a look here.

Here's a few pictures from our day out...

 


You can walk under the waterfall...
 


People actually walk up these steps...

You can't have a day out and not take a selfie...


Stepping stones...




This is actually someone's house...


I've done a post on my outfit here if you missed it!


How magical does this look? It's like a secret garden...



The peacock was just casually walking around the cafe yard...


You can't beat home made carrot cake...


Have you ever been to Newstead Abbey?
