My visit to a National Trust property a few weeks ago had a dual purpose. Firstly I had never visited Polesdon Lacey before and secondly trying out a sat nav which was a present from my children as they try and drag me into the 21st cent. Using a sat nav is not on my bucket list but maybe I should have included it as it has taken me a long time to agree to use one. Much prefer a traditional map although trying to drive and navigate when you are alone in the car is not easy.
I chose this property as it seemed a little out of the way and I would have to put my trust into technology. Well I got there. It did seem to take a long time and I only went wrong once but the well spoken lady from the sat nav put me back onto the correct road in no time.
The future King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (the present Queen's mother and father) spent part of their honeymoon here in 1923.
The house has a wide collection of art and ceramics.
As you would imagine there are extensive grounds and gardens surrounding the house.
