Where I stayed
King George the V created his own private museum of big game trophies and this is displayed in a room at the stables. We wondered why you would want to shoot some of the animals mounted as they are so beautiful and precious.Not our favourite room there , thank goodness things are a little different today.
We finished our visit with a walk through the gardens, 60 acres of stunning beauty.It used to be a very formal Edwardian age garden ,but has been changed to more informal plantings of trees , shrubs and lakeside lawns. Very beautiful to look at and will probably be even more stunning with the on-coming autumn colours. would love to take a peek than. We wanted to have a look at the church where the family worships but it was still closed so had to go without that one.
All in all it was a lovely visit and well worth seeing, but please allow plenty of time for your visit. Because it was warm and sunny a lot of people were picnicing on the lawns which made it even more attractive to see.
Great day today, thanks to a warm and sunny day, the best time to visit.
