A glorious late summer day at Hughenden Manor/Une superbe journée de fin d’été au Manoir de Hughenden

🇬🇧 We were in the UK for the last bank holiday of the summer and just decided to really make the most of it.

We decided to head out for the day and have a pic-nic at the beautiful Hughenden Manor.

🇫🇷 Nous étions en Angleterre pour le dernier weekend de 3 jours du mois d’Aout et avec la météo qui nous était annoncé il nous fallait en profiter. Bien évidemment habiter a 5 dans un appartement est un élément supplémentaire  qui nous motive pour bouger et partir faire des petites excursions en famille!
