Talking about travelling through time and see collection of historic buildings dating from 13th to 19th century in 40 acres of beautiful picturesqe sussex countryside, boy i'm knackered! I'm only going to show you some photos which i think my fave or not so boring but i took loads of photos that i dont want to flood blogspot with them all :)
The Bayleaf Farmstead house with a beautiful garden complete with a field of hops and tamworth pig close to the house, lots to see and many things to do mostly for kids though, lino printing, learn to knit, basket weaving, corn doll making and even a session to attend a victorian school for children with the school teacher wearing a victorian costume,to name a few.
Poplar cottage is my 2nd fave after the Bayleaf farmstead house, but i'm not so sure i wanted to live in those era coz i dont fancy going to their oh-so-unappealing loo. Just sit in that round gaping hole when u do your business, but if u move forward a lil bit and look down, u can actually see what's come out from the hole, the loo is on the 2nd floor and whatever comes down from the hole will become manure or so they told me *eww*
Passed by more houses, went inside each houses and walked up to the narrow and steep staircases, noticed lots of dried flowers either hung up or on the floor, snapping photos everytime, exhausting but kind of fun especially when we went to see the mill house where they made a wholemeal flour and again passed by more barns, granary and stopped to see the Shire horses, though i'm not too keen on getting too close coz they're huge!
and tasting the oh so fresh flatbread made traditionally in one of the kitchen in the Tudor house by this lady, yummy!
Those flatbread tasting made us hungry so we went to have a picnic near the duck pond, I purposely brought my own food, some sandwiches and blueberry muffins. Fed the duck with the leftover. Oh fun!
and after about 4 hours or so walking, our last stop was the museum shop, i only bought a fridge magnet as i like collecting it whenever i go somewhere as a souvenir and a real horse shoe which they sell after not being used anymore from the horses, well for luck! :)
That's all for now, if tomorrow's going to be bright, we might head down to town and watch something in the cinema or even a visit to a pub for lunch but if not, there's always a take away and pay per view on cable :P
I think i've had enough sheeps, cows, donkeys and horses for one day though they're all soo cute, everytime passing by a huge field to get to one house to the next :)
next time..i'd prefer to pay a visit to a miniatures houses, might not take hours to walk, u think? :)
