Here are some of the pictures-if you would like to see more I have just uploaded all of them onto flickr. It is such a beautiful place with so many lovely combinations of colour and shape, that it is hard to resist just one more picture.
This little brick path is so inviting.

Elegant snakes head fritillaries in the grass. I bought a couple of these, in the hope they may survive. Although they look lovely they have a most unpleasant smell-cat's wee! There were so many robins-and other birds-including house martins.
Some kind of exotic plant still in its winter blanket of straw.
This part of the house is a whole other house, that was taken down and transported by horse and cart from a nearby village. It was then left in the garden for a few years before being reassembled in around 1910. The owner at the time bought it for £75!
The very impressive hall-this is a photo of a postcard as we were not allowed to take photos. When we were in there today it had a more wild and woolly feel due to a huge palm and other large houseplants. There was a sweet picture of two dachshunds posed with a string of sausages. There were chairs and settles embroidered by the Lloyd family-Christopher Lloyd's mother made sure all her children were kept busy with this. I also liked the faint mark in the beam above the fireplace-a circle with a line drawn vertically down through it-to keep witches from coming down your chimney!
