This was the Billiard Room, and also dedicated to Arthurian legend (which apparently connects the valley to King Arthur). This was Keith's favourite room, needless to say - more manly overall and TWO suits of armour, plus the Arthurian lettering etc.
This stuffed white badger represents a small group of white badgers which live in the valley, and have done since the 1950s.
A painting of the house at harvest time back around the turn of the 19th C.
I don't normally like fake Christmas trees, but this was beautifully dressed. I think shoes and bags were the theme for this one?
Madame's boudoir, with a collection of wonderful hats, and hat boxes.
I loved this Art Deco scent bottle. It was HUGE.
That's what you CALL a bed!!
Above and below: views across the valley and the garden.
One of my favourite bits - a collection of amazing doll's houses. I want one!! Knowing how much the furniture and bits cost for them though, it will never happen!
Above and below: the kitchens were my favourite rooms of course.
These rooms had been the servants' rooms, up in the attic, and felt very homely.
Above - this room had a lovely happy atmosphere. I could have moved in here.
Finally, another view of the garden, designed by Himself. I think he did a good job.
Tomorrow I will probably repeat an old post, with lots of snow scenes, so that my friend Yarrow can send a link to a friend of hers living in Texas who SO misses the snow. Watch this space.
