Today we visited Ascott House, which is a National Trust property located in a village called Wing, between Leighton Buzzard and Aylesbury.
The house itself is owned by the Rothschild family and we've popped into it a couple of times, but the main attraction for us is the gardens.
Ascott is known for its display of daffodils in the spring, which is well worth seeing but it also has many different areas of gardens all of which are different in styles.There are woodland walks, formal gardens, open areas, fountains, and even a topiary sundial.
The boys particularly like the man made mini hills for running and rolling down and there are lots of trees to climb but no designated play area as such. However due to the variety of areas there are it keeps their interest anyway.
If you intend visiting Ascott I'd recommend checking the National Trusts website for opening hours as they can vary and often it is open in the afternoon only rather than all day.
