National Heritage Weekend.. Mountstewart House and Gardens

This weekend was National Heritage weekend and yesterday (Saturday) I went to Mountstewart (in Northern Ireland where I live) with my friend and her parents. It was a beautifully sunny day and we had a lovely picnic of mars bar and apple sandwiches (sounds horrible, but, honestly, try them!) and 7up :) 

This is me and my friend Ami. We looked like little old ladies on a day out. The dress I was wearing is from River Island (£10 in sale), the necklace is from Accessorise (£2 in sale), the cardigan was Ami's and was from Tesco, the shoes were also Ami's from Primark but she said I could keep them because they don't fit her properly :)

This is the house, it is really lovely inside (and it was free this weekend which was a bonus!)

The rooms are packed with lovely old things. I wouldn't know what to do with all that space if I had a house that huge..

Even though you were aloud to take photos, the lady in this room shouted at us for taking pictures of the books... I had already taken one so this photo makes me feel like a bit of a rebel.. sad, I know.

This door was so pretty, but there was nothing behind it, it was just for show.  My hair was up in a messy bun, but it had started to fall out by this stage... My lipstick is shade 12 in the Kate Moss for Rimmel lipsticks
