Cobwebs and Cream Teas

September 30, 2006


This is one of my favourite books, I’ve read it many times. Its a true story by the wife of a National Trust House ‘Houseman’. Chris ran a house in Norfolk called Felbrigg Hall.  Mary was gradually roped in to being a general dogsbody! Basically, its a summary of the day-to -day running of the house. The reason I’m so fond of the book, is that it reminds me very much of a place up in the Scottish Highlands which we managed for a season, before the House was sold. Certain parts of the book are very similar and made me laugh. I’m reading it again!
