We were members of the National Trust before Lockdown and never renewed our membership since the world shut down… So, last night we decided to re-join… and printed off our temporary membership paper.

One of the stately homes that I’ve always wanted to visit was Ham House, which became well known in the BBC Sense and Sensibility 2008 drama series. Ham House was used for the interior shots, of Norlands the family home of the Dashwoods, with the grounds being used for the exterior shots. The film producers even asked the National Trust not to cut the grass for several weeks prior to filming.

The entrance door to the house is grand… with it’s carving and I couldn’t believe how large the entrance door was.

As you head left through the grand hall you come across the wooden staircase, which is carved.

Throughout Ham House, there are a lot of artworks, and painted ceilings with intricate carvings.

Hanging down in the hallway was a beautiful candelabra ceiling light.

Gardens

Outside the gardens are extensive… I’ve never seen so many lavender bushes! In the gardens by the Orangery, which is used as the Cafe and outdoor seating, there amongst the borders by the wall stood this beautiful apricot coloured rose which was in bud.

As you strolled through the wildflower patch, back towards the main house was the wildflower gardens, which were full with beautiful wildflowers and grasses.

As we left Ham House, walking back towards the car we took the river route… with plenty of dog’s swimming in the Thames. Ham House is worth a visit and you can take your dogs for a walk there. A dog’s delight… a stroll, a treat from the cafe and to finish off a swim in the river.

A perfect day… with plenty of pooches to stroke and make a fuss of.. 😀 😀 😀
