The interior of the manor was simply yet elegantly decorated for Christmas. I took lots of pictures as I wanted to share the English beauty and style with Tayta.
The Dining Room~ I loved the simplicity of the ivy and red ribbon garlands.
In the dining room with my dear friend, Monica
the tea tableIn the hallway we viewed a sample holiday gift basket which would be given to a servant of the manor.
Down into the cellar we went, to see the World War II intelligence headquarters:
The Communications Room
Here is where I admit that while I had seen this poster all over the internet, I hadn't realized until I saw it in the manor house that it originated in wartime England.
I took this one for Dear Husband. He smiled. Sort of.
We took a turn in the garden and then it was time to head back, making a brief stop at the church on the manor grounds. The church still has an active congregation and is also the location of Disraeli's burial vault.
Leaving the church, we set out across the park, headed for home.
One last picture of us, surrounded by English beauty. Yes, the grass was really this green. Such a lovely day.
