Surprisingly different from some of the other National Trusts we have been to. We were lucky to get to visit, as it turned out this is only open one week a month. Plus if we thought of going there in August it is closed completely as it is rented out for people to stay in. Yes, actually stay there. Which explains why I got confused looking around and saw a Mix of old and new together.

Have to say it was all done very sympathetically and somehow the two different eras worked well together...
I still enjoyed seeing the old styles though
(I used a fisheye view to get more of the rooms in)
this was a spy hole that looked out to the entrance
they got to see visitors and decide if they would answer the door no doubt
Look carefully and you will see the spy hole
Well worth a visit
