Apparently it was also used as a location for a DOWNTON ABBEY episode. (This is where I have to admit I have never seen the program, but it seems to be popular) ;)
An exhibition of Graham Sutherland paintings
We wouldn't dream of putting so much detail on our ceilings,
but I guess if you have such a magnificent house you can indulge yourself a little....
The pillars aren't real marble,
it's a trompe l'oeil illusion....
No, I hadn't fallen over....I just wanted to get the chairs and the ceiling in the same pic
Even the gardens and grounds were stunning
