Sissinghurst Castle

We have been blessed with some beautiful October sunshine this year, so it would be rude not to go out and enjoy it!

So, with our good friends from Oomph Wellness, we headed out to the stunning Sissinghurst Castle, which is part of the National Trust. With the lovely architecture, perfectly maintained gardens and history knocking at every corner, it was the perfect place to go as everyone could enjoy the day.

We took in all the castle had to offer, and then we all headed into the cafe for some much-needed refreshments before heading back home. A wonderful day had by all!

Our fact from the castle: The site that Sissinghurst Castle Garden sits on was once a Saxon pig farm, it would have been originally called ‘Saxenhurst’, with ‘hurst’ having meant woodland.
