For a Truly Illuminating Experience Next Weekend...

I am looking forward to taking the family to Arlington Court next weekend. For those who have yet to visit, Arlington Court is an elegant country house, with gorgeous Victorian gardens, on a family estate, on the edge of Exmoor.

On Sunday (5th Oct),  Arlington Court will be illuminating their gardens with ‘subtle lighting’ and lanterns that will have been made by visitors over that weekend for a special one-off evening to celebrate the end of their recent  “Fading of the Light” exhibition.

I’m hoping to enjoy a kind of ‘magical’ experience as I believe lanterns will be hanging off the trees and floating in the pond.  And, I’ll be treating the kids (and myself, of course) to toasted marshmallows on the fire and a hot chocolate each.  Surely, a fun- filled evening for all…adults, kids and even the dog (they are allowed on leads).

Just need to remember to bring a torch (as, apparently the paths will be dark) and to wrap everyone up warm!

Date: Sunday 5th October, 4.30pm to 7.30pm
