Last weekend was the last weekend of October, the weekend when National Trust Properties tend to start closing for the winter, and also the last weekend of our half-term holiday.
Being National Trust members, we decided to make the most of our subscription for the year and fit in as many as we could while having a break away in our favourite haunt near Minehead.
So on Friday we went to
STOURHEAD. …wonderful place, gorgeous house, wonderful library, amazing gardens and a Steinway. Grand piano with a notice on it saying “pianists welcome!” – well, of course, I couldn’t resist!
On Sunday we found ourselves at
ARLINGTON COURT. and – guess what? Yet another Grand piano for me to play. Another Collard and Collard, nicer than the previous one but not a patch on the Steinway.
A Grand weekend indeed!
