The dressing up room, my heaven! Couldn't resist trying this coat and hat. The coat is real fur, I don't really stand strongly on either side of the debate, I am neutral but I can understand why people find it upsetting.
There are so many beautiful dressing tables around the house, each with a different colour glass set.
The saloon has such an impressive atmosphere. I could just imagine sitting in here sipping cocktails and listening to the grand piano.
After all the opulence of upstairs you heard down to the servants' quarters. I imagined this more how ordinary people lived in the twenties and thirties. It appears though that the servants in this household still led a pleasing life and were surrounded by some luxury. The main room had a table set for tea and even a gramophone in the corner.
The gardens are just as beautiful as the house and lead down to a cove with fantastic views.
This such an incredible house and really does make you want to experience life in the golden era. Paired with a visit to Greenway (which I wrote about here) this makes a wonderful day out for any fan of times gone by!
