I've got my accommodation for my holidays booked so now for things to do!
Cornwall is rich in National Trust properties, far richer than my own area so I plan on visiting several gardens whilst I'm on holiday. Not only do I love visiting gardens, I love people watching, so if the weather is good I shall take a picnic and some sewing and settle on a bench in a pretty spot. The great thing about sewing while sitting in a garden is that people often can't resist coming over to see what you are doing and having a chat. Enhanced people watching or what!
I'm not a member of the National Trust but I am a member of the National Trust for Scotland and my membership card gets me admittance to English and Welsh National Trust properties too. Scottish membership for me is £31.60 and to join the National Trust as well would be a further £60 so I won't be doing that.
Not joining the National Trust means I won't get a handbook but there's lots of information on the web anyway so I'm doing my research as to what is open when.
