National Trust Break Description
A short tour that allows us to explore three different, much treasured properties that are in the care of the National Trust. The restoration and preservation of these wonderful homes, gardens and estates will ensure that we can all continue to hear their story and enjoy them for generations to come.
National Trust Break Itinerary
Wednesday We depart Cornwall in the morning and enjoy a break for lunch before our first National Trust visit, Lytes Cary Manor. This intimate medieval home has a beautiful arts and crafts garden where you can imagine living. Originally the family home of Henry Lyte, where he translated the unique Niewe Herbal book on herbal remedies, Lytes Cary was then lovingly restored by Sir Walter Jenner. Later in the afternoon we journey through the Mendips and on to our hotel.
Thursday This morning we cross the Severn bridge into Wales and begin with a visit to the lovely city of Cardiff. We have a couple of hours here before visiting one of the architectural wonders of Wales. Tredegar House has been shaped by the local community and it stands proudly at the heart of Newport’s heritage. There will be time to enjoy the majestic staterooms, historically important walled gardens and beautiful parklands.
Friday After breakfast we visit Tyntesfield. This spectacular Victorian gothic revival house with garden and parkland was not built as an extravagant statement of wealth but simply to serve as a family home. The garden and estate balance faded beauty and function with an abundance of nature, celebrated in ornate gothic carvings that decorate the house. In the afternoon we travel back to Cornwall arriving home during the evening.

We stay at the four star Holiday Inn Bristol Filton, a stylish hotel set in landscaped grounds on the outskirts of the city.
