Temple Newsam Again

It's a gorgeous autumn day today so we didn't want to waste it, though we didn't want to go too far as we're going out tonight. You may remember my last post about Temple Newsam back in August. As it's only about a ten minute drive away from where we live, we decided to go there again today.

There weren't many people around the field where Archie has his run.

It was a little breezy and some kite fliers had decided to take advantage of the weather.

Archie found a stick which he took a liking to.

We decided we would take a walk around the lake so headed down that way. There are some gorgeous gardens at Temple Newsam, but I'll show you those in another post as they're not at their best at this time of year. The grounds at Temple Newsam were landscaped by Capability Brown.

Archie had to be put on his lead as he was desperate to jump in and have a swim.

A little wooden bridge takes you to the other side of the lake.

Archie made friends with a sheep from the farm.

We're very lucky that we have such lovely places to visit nearby. There's so much more to Temple Newsam than what I've shown you in two posts, I'll post more soon.


  1. What beautiful grounds.
    Love from Mum

  2. Looks great, might be worth a visit as it's always nice to find a place that accepts dogs and is a little different.
    Our favourite at the moment for it's variety of walks is Thorpe Perrow by Bedale, it's got a Falconry area and small petting zoo which are the only places dogs can't go.

  3. A favourite haunt of ours. Great for kite flying and safe cycling for the boy xxx

  4. It looks beautiful and sounds like it has an interesting history if it was landscaped by Capability Brown.

  5. Thank you for your comments.

    Kay - I've never heard of Thorpe Perrow, I'll have to look it up and put it on the list.

    Sft - Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. Temple Newsam has a very interesting history. There's a link on my previous post about it if you're interested.

  6. It's a lovely place, Denise, we go often.
