Back in January as part of our Dorset discovery week we had a walk around Kingston Lacy in Wimborne Minster to walk off a rather tasty lunch at Number9. The lunch was much needed as we'd spent a windy morning at the top of Corfe Castle, but more on that another day. We arrived at Kinston Lacy not expecting to have very much time, but time enough to discover some snowdrops. The NT volunteer at reception said we had more time than we thought and helpfully pointed us in the direction of where we'd most likely find some snowdrops.
The house itself is pretty impressive and we'll be back another time I'm sure to see inside it. It was inspired by the palaces of Italy and was bought by Sir John Bankes in 1636, along with Corfe Castle - so quite a coincidence that we'd visited there earlier in the day. But anyway, it's a pretty grand looking house and the day we were there the skies were pretty stunning too.
