The enormous beautiful Blenheim palace is in Woodstock, 30 minutes drive from us. The historic home of Winston Churchill
In beautiful extensive grounds. Well worth a day out.

Stowe Gardens

Stowe gardens are under an hours drive from Lakeside Town Farm. We went on a lovely sunny afternoon and had lunch in the barn cafe then walked around the extensive gardens. The snowdrops were sparkling in the sunshine

Princess Anne Visits Thame

I was shopping in Thame Market today and Princess Anne graced us with her presence. She was there to unveil a plaque to commemorate a market being on the site for 800 years. The sun was shining and she was very relaxed chatting to the stall holders and mingling with the crowd.
Thame market is there every Tuesday and only 5 miles from Lakeside Town Farm.

Campfire party

Last Monday we had our annual campfire party held in the water meadows. Campfire was fuelled by a huge fallen dead chestnut tree with much more left for next years event.
Over 70 people came with their food to go on the barbecue…chairs drink and plates. The children love the relaxed atmosphere where they can run about and get into no harm, loving the small stream across the middle and fallen trees played on as ships. Not an electric gadget in sight!!!
Just like the old days when I used to play there with local friends.
