    Just up the road from me is an early 17th century farmhouse, now in the care of the National Trust. They run it as a holiday cottage for most of the year but it's open to the public on 2 weekends. It's a fascinating property.

    General view of the house:

    Some interior details - most of the decorations here were added about 60 years ago by a local artist

    The farm buildings were equally interesting

    wonderful impressions of this house!
    The black and white conversion turns the last one into something very dramatic... Makes the "Keep shut" feel much more sinister... :)
