We were shown to our room up this wonderfully crazy staircase.
You can see why I couldn't stop photographing it!
The figures were taken down and stored during the Second World War whilst the American army was in residence. A good job because some of the statues in the garden have holes in them, having been used for target practise!
we were shown into a lovely bedroom
and a polite notice in the bathroom told us not to allow water to soak on the floor as a rather precious ceiling was beneath us. We bathed with care!
Beautiful drapes at the window.
Although thunder rumbled we went to explore the grounds.
Rain overnight, but in the morning we woke to sunshine
and a wonderful view from the window
