Nestled amidst the picturesque countryside of Suffolk lies a haven of natural beauty and tranquillity – Nowton Park. This week we took advantage of this seemingly endless summer and went on a delightful escapade to this enchanting park. The day was not just an outing; it was a rejuvenating experience, a chance to reconnect with nature and find solace in the serene surroundings.
Nowton Park, located on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds, is a cherished gem. Spread across 200 acres, the park is renowned for its breath-taking landscapes, diverse flora, and peaceful ambiance. Steeped in history, the park was once part of the Nowton Court Estate and has been transformed into a public park, offering visitors a perfect blend of natural beauty and recreational activities.
We had such a lovely day, the sun shone, and the leaves rustled underfoot as we strolled along the winding pathways.
Nowton Park is a nature lovers dream but it’s not just a haven for plant enthusiasts; it's also a sanctuary for wildlife. During our visit, we had the pleasure of observing a variety of birds and butterflies. The sight of a graceful swan gliding across the lake brought smiles to everyone's faces. These encounters with nature's creatures offer a sense of connection with the natural world.
It really was the perfect day, a long stroll, a hot drink, and beautiful sights and sounds, it doesn’t get much better than this.
