Challenge Charnwood - I need your help!

I am offering the chance for you to have your family portraits taken as a thank you for showing me some of the best sights that this area has to offer.

I am an outdoor Children's and Family Portrait Photographer specialising in Charnwood and I would like to think that I know the area pretty well.  I've built a business around it, after all.  However, every now and then I stumble across a new location that catches my breath.  

One such place was Whatton House and Gardens.  I have driven past that entrance so many hundreds of times and every single time I have thought - I  must go in there one day.  It was around this time last year that I finally made that journey and what I discovered was magical.  Acres of heady garlic, a rose garden, vast herbaceous borders, mature trees from all over the world, some replica terracotta soldiers and the prettiest lake (cover image) that I have ever set eyes upon.

I suspect that our pretty little Burrough may have some other equally wonderful secret gardens hidden away.  And this is where I NEED YOUR HELP...

I am challenging you to show me your favourite spot in Charnwood.  It doesn't have to be a stately home or garden (although I'm excited to see if there are more!).  It could be woodland, a hilltop, a local landmark - absolutely anything.  Get your thinking caps on, because the family that comes up with the best location will be given a photoshoot at that place.  In addition to the Photoshoot they will also receive 5 digital images to update their Family Portraits on their walls in their home.

All that I ask is that you be available on the morning of Saturday 17th Feb for your Photo Shoot to take place (If there are lots of great locations I may decide to have more than one winner and release some more dates!).
