This Christmas, my family will get a very traditional Tudor &  Elizabethan Christmas dinner and celebration ! Next year, I shall extend this unique experience to a number of guests !Let me know if you want to be part of it !

I wish everybody a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR !

Last week I was able finish the restoration & upholstery on 2 17th century chairs ! 

Lots of LTC, time & patience was required ! 

The  " Sandstone " room is now ready and fully refurbished ! The late 16th / early 17th century full tester bed required a lot of planning ahead and the use of 4 very strong men ! 

Over the cooler time of the year, we will be starting a small orchard with ancient varieties of apples and pears !
