In autumn I visited Tatton Park in Knutsford, Cheshire for the first time. I hadn’t expected it to be such a beautiful place! You can find grazing sheep next to deer, and all by the side of the various footpaths. There is a lovely lake surrounded by fields and trees…and if you need a break you can enjoy a cup of tea in the Stableyard and nip in the Gardener’s cottage or the Houskeepers store that sells food from mostly local producers. Kids will love the little carousel in the courtyard and the afternoon tea in the Tea Room is supposed to be really, really nice.
