Book Description

3 Oct 2012
Britain’s stately homes and grand houses are among its greatest treasures, and The Most Amazing Stately Homes in Britain brings you the grandest, most magnificent, eccentric and unusual of them all. This wonderfully illustrated regional touring guide describes each house and tells its story, following the ebb and flow of fortune and fame. Every house has something that sets it apart from the rest: the magnificent four-storey Tudor tower (set in world famous gardens) of Sissinghurst in Kent; sumptuous painted cloth wallhangings of romantic Owlpen Manor in Gloucestershire; superb topiary at Levens Hall in Cumbria; sinister myths of Blickling Hall in Norfolk and the enchanting Great Garden of Edzell Castle in Scotland, created in 1604 to stimulate the mind and the senses. Discover ancient deer parks; exquisite collections of furniture, national treasures and breathtaking views, to enjoy season-byseason and year-round. The cover features Chatsworth in Derbyshire, one of Britain’s most famous historic houses and the fastest-growing paid-for visitor attraction in 2010* with more than 716,000 visitors. In May 2012 Chatsworth featured in a popular threepart BBC1 documentary covering a year behind the scenes of the house and estate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough images for my requirement 2 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Lovely quality book, and great informative text, but for my needs there were not enough images. I would have liked images of every house covered in the book, rather than just text, which is the case for the majority of houses covered - althought the text is very informative there is nothing like seeing an image of the property, especially if you are considering making a trip. You could of course supplement the book by googlin, but that defeats the object of having bought the book i feel! Book is bit smaller than a4 and is about 3/4 inch thick. Nice medium weight matt cover and a satin finish inside.
