Do you watch Downton Abbey?
If so, your going to love this post!!
I thought I'd take you on a tour of some of the

These homes are GRAND in every way
Hope you enjoy the tour

from my cousin's cottage
|Gardens and stables are at back of house|
|View from side of home|

I would have stayed there forever!

|Storage Room for Guests luggage|
Let's step outside to the gardens
and then on to the Higher Garden

That's enough walking for one day.
Time to stop off at a local pub for a
Every Little Birdie says
But don't put your walking shoes away yet!
Next post we will tour two more stately homes
Sorry to say Highclere Castle is not on the tour
but if you've watched Downtown Abbey you've already toured it!
