Yesterday we decided to go to Houghton Lodge.
An 18th Century Grade ΙΙ* listed Gothic Cottage Orné, idyllically set above the tranquil waters of the River Test. The House is set in extensive grounds, with fine trees and lawns sweeping down to the banks of the River.It was a sunny afternoon although a little breezy. It was good to see so many butterflies on the flowers and we had an enjoyable outing.
There is a small self servic cafe. You make your own tea and help yourself to the delicious homemade cakes.
