So grateful to have been able to make the most of last day of Summer when temperatures soared to nearly 30 degrees. We made up a tasty picnic and took off with Matilda's friend Tabitha to Morden Hall Park in Morden. A short drive from home for us with plenty of activities for children or quiet spaces for adults, it is definitely worth discovering.
A beautiful spot with a stunning rose garden surrounded by huge old trees giving the perfect shade for a hot day. A shallow river allows for safe paddling, a great way to keep cool. For the children there is a fabulous play area with stepping stones, climbing ropes, swings and a stage they loved running around on.
We whiled away a few hours playing in the sun, taking in the scent of the spectacular flowers around us then ended up in the National Trust Tea shop for a well earned refreshing ice cream. This is one National Trust property you don't have to pay to enter its grounds or car park, which is a bonus quite frankly! We'll be going back for a walk in the Autumn if the rain ever stops!

|Mmm how do I get down now?|
|Yes we're going in!|
|Now, where to?|
