Autumn At Gibside | National Trust

Gibside is one of our favourite National Trust properties. It is absolutely beautiful all year round but there is something special about it in Autumn.

The leaves changing colour and the smell of campfires make for a perfect autumn stroll.

We took our own picnic but popped into the cafe for hot coffee and cake! Their frangipane and almond cake is a particular favourite of mine.

Gibside is also the perfect place to take some autumnal photos, I plan to frame some of the ones I took last weekend.

    I love National Trust. My favourites around my area are Penrhyn Castle and Bodnant Gardens. They’re so beautiful. I love your photos – so pretty.

    Your photos are gorgeous! What a beautiful place for an autumnal walk. It’s very pretty and the trees don’t all seem to be turning brown yet; although the leaves are on the floor!
    Izzy looks like she had a fab day out.

    Thanks for joining #daysoutwithatoddler 🙂 see you again soon

    Gorgeous pictures! She’s such a cutie. We love Gibside, it’s ten mins down the road from us so we go often. Have you been to Washington Old Hall? That’s another favourite for my little man.

      Hi Cat, We’ve only been to Washington Old Hall the once, and that was when Izzy was tiny. I think another trip may be on the cards xx
