Lytes Cary Manor (NT)

Just "up the road" from Tintinhull is Lytes Cary Manor ,
a small medieval manor house, 
surrounded by lovely Arts and Crafts garden.








The most interesting exhibit I found inside is this mirror - 
the frame is covered in stumpwork  embroidery. 
Unfortunately the pictures did not come out well...

  2. I do so love these old manor houses. This one looks comfortable too. Lots of oohs and aahs for the garden. Spectacular topiary. Wish I could clip that precisely.

  3. I love the stumpwork and is that a hexie quilt on the four poster? Great pictures as always Radka. Hope blogger sorts itself out soon. xx

    1. Well spotted, Lin; I have now posted a cropped version of the quilt, it shows it little better - not a great picture :-(
