As soon as we arrived I said to my fried, I'd love to come to a party here.............. And then I was surprised to discover that it was built to entertain!!! The entrance hall is wondrous - with so many things to look at within the carvings, and scultures. The two paintings seem incongruous though. The history of the house is fascinating, and certainly historic, with the longest serving speaker one of the residents (who wrote the rules for the speakers to ensure appropriate conduct in the House of Commons). Mrs Gubbays collection, although not exactly suited to the house, is wide ranging (and of course her back story is interesting too). Well worth a visit.............. and the room guides were extrenely helpful and very friendly.
