We are so lucky living in the midlands as we've Trentham Gardens which is in Staffordshire on our doorstep , it's only 45 minutes from where we live in Derby and makes for a gorgeous day out. And as you are near to all the potteries there is plenty of other places to visit as well. Myself and Mr T decided to drag the willing teenager out from his A level revision though he took his revision with him in the car in the form of notes .
Trentham Gardens is suitable for all ages and it's great for a family get together , there are plenty of places you can have you own picnic , of course as well there are cafes .

The Spring sunshine is absolutely gorgeous and it was really warm at one stage I even took my coat off and everyone knows it has to be really warm for me to do that !
I love how the light plays upon the water of the lake like miniature diamonds that's at the heart of Trentham Gardens .
Everybody knows that fairies live at the bottom of the garden and there's certainly plenty of fairies to spot rounds the gardens , they're beautiful and magically everything a fairy should be. There are 15 fairies to find round the gardens , the fairy sculptures are sculptured beautifully.
I really do find the sound of water babbling over rocks very relaxing indeed and could watch it all day .
It's just over 2 miles round the lake the route itself is very pushchair and wheelchair friendly , it didn't feel like it was 2 miles at all I think because there is do much visually to entertain your eye like the abundant wildlife.
With the grounds of the garden are the ruins of Trentham hall it is sad to see such a once magnificent house in decline , such is the state of many of our historical houses. I believe it's on the at risk register for buildings and there is hope one day it will be snapped up for a luxury hotel.
At the end of visit to the gardens why not take the chance to grab a cheeky bite to eat in the shopping village. There are 50 shops waiting to part you with your money or you can just window shop.
