Athelhampton

This was just the entrance to the grounds which had a shop and restaurant.
The gardens although much smaller than Mountstewart at home were well planned out.
A lot of work for a family to maintain the garden before even thinking about the home. The Cooke family are in residence but still plenty to see inside.


Great hall
The black spot on the painting is not an error but the guy had war wounds such as a hole in his face he kept covered.
The organ is in working condition.
Moving on upstairs.













There has been a lot of filming here so costumes seen.


Dining room is used frequently by the family
