...For history. Now, I know that I talk about Ashdown House a lot but it is one of the most beautiful and atmospheric historic houses in England so I think that's fair enough. The house is now open for the 2009 season and on Saturday April 11th I will be taking my first guided tours around the property. We're hoping for some lovely spring weather and lots of visitors! So just to whet the appetite, here is a picture! And remember - if you live in the UK or you are visiting this year, do call in to see us. We would love to show you round and afterwards you can go for a delicious cream tea in historic Ashbury village! For more information on Ashdown visit the special Ashdown House blog!
