Greys Court

Yesterday I met up with my school friends, Kate, Jane and Sally for our annual get together day, which usually happens early in the year so we can decide where to go for a weekend away later in the year.   As we have already planned our weekend away we still chose to meet up for a day out.   

As a couple of my friends and now 3 of my friends are National Trust members we decided to visit a  NT property and we went to Greys Court, which is not too far from Henley on Thames.  
Before we went into the house we took the "Felix's Gentle Path at Greys Court" walk.    The walk took us through some bluebell woods and also gave as a lovely view of the house from a vista.

The walk brings you back to the house over the Moon Bridge which takes you over the ha ha. 
We also managed a walk in the garden with the sun-shining on us.  
The house itself is a lovely Tudor Mansion and so welcoming, you felt like you could happily live there.   

We had a lovely day, dodging the heavy showers, made full use of the catering facilities and spent some time in shop too.
