I seek it here, I seek it there, but somehow I’ve managed to misplace an entire British mansion. I’ve decided to crowdsource the answer from my fellow bloggers in social media.
Here’s the backstory: Years ago, I traveled to the U.K. and stayed in a cottage in Devon with some friends of mine. It was a marvelous cottage which had been converted, I believe, from some old stables. I thought it was very comfortable and my room had a skylight right over the bed, so I got a kick out of watching the stars come out and listening to the local cattle mooing as they settled down for the night.
We took day trips into the marvelously historic town of nearby Tavistock and to other places. One of the sites we visited was the mansion below, and I’m trying to track down its name.
All I recall is that the mansion (or castle??) is within a few hours of Tavistock, Devon. I tried Googling but so far I haven’t had much luck yet. I’m hoping one of my British blogging buddies (whew — try saying that phrase “British blogging buddies” five times fast) or another blogger who has visited the U.K. might know it and remember its name.
We didn’t go in; as I recall, I don’t think they were having tours that day. It looked like a marvelous place inside from the glimpses I got through the window. The gardens were equally spectacular.
I’d like to track down the house and its exact location since I’d enjoy going back to visit one day. I wouldn’t mind seeing the inside of the house, either, if they have a website.
If anyone has info, please provide it in the comment section below. Thanks, people!
