Giant grass sofas start growing around Britain

275x250.jpg A dozen huge grass sofas have been installed at tourist attractions around the UK -- in a bizarre bid to get couch potatoes out of the house.

The sofas - some of which are 30ft long - are the idea of the National Trust and are made from a base of straw which has been watered and trimmed to size, and covered in a green grass blanket.

Bosses came up with the odd idea after it was revealed the average family spends 43 hours a week sat on their sofa, even in the summer.

Each sofa is also positioned in a 'outdoor living room' and took just over a month to grow… meanwhile, your sofa at home has probably got something growing behind it.
275x250.jpg The West Midlands was named the region with the most sofa-bound families, followed jointly by the North West and Yorkshire – spending 50 and 47 hours a week on the couch respectively.

The Sofa living rooms can be found at:
Plas Newydd, Wales
Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire
Wimpole Hall, Cambridgeshire
Gibside, Tyne & Wear
Kingston Lacey, Dorset
Sudbury Hall and the National Trust Museum of Childhood, Derbyshire
Uppark House & Garden, Sussex
Osterley Park & House, London
Rowallane Garden, Northern Ireland
Packwood House, Warwickshire
Lanhydrock, Cornwall
Wembury Point, Devon
