The house was the set location for two television adaptations of Evelyn Waugh's novel "Brideshead Revisited".
Wow, what an amazing place. Here are some views of the outside.
Then we toured the inside. The house is filled with exquisite art works, sculpture, furniture, tapestries and ornaments.
These were some of my favourite rooms: the turquoise drawing room and the music room.
Loved all the old books
I could see new quilt patterns everywhere I looked:
The Chapel was exquisite and I could have spent all day just there.
We drove on to Whitby, the coastal town where Captain James Cook spent his time in apprenticeship. All four ships captained by Cook were built in the shipyards at Whitby, including the Endeavour. We saw a 40% replica ship entering the harbour.
Loved it all.
Driving through James Herriot country tomorrow, the Yorkshire dales.
