It took us a lap of the house to find the tea room; we'd been charity shopping and I was desperate for a cuppa. In the end my husband asked someone who led us through the house as it was quicker than going back around. Suitably refreshed, we tackled the house. Many of the rooms are panelled, with huge paintings in big gilt frames. It feels very grand indeed.
I love a dressing up box, and this one was particularly fun. I pushed the small children out of the way and grabbed a rather lovely picture hat.
An electric corset sounds dangerous, don't you think?!
It was a reasonably fine day so I wore my Heyday grey trousers, black and white brogues, and cosy layers for warmth. We had a lovely stroll around the parkland before heading off. It was a little muddy in places but it was nice to see the Spring flowers popping out.

Do you mind visiting places when there's work in progress? Or do you prefer to wait until it's all finished and restored?
