A day at Chatsworth November 25, 2012

Filed under: Places to go — lauravw @ 2:07 pm

The week before last, I was able to spend a day at Chatsworth House in Derbyshire.

I went three years ago, at the same time of year – they really go to town on their Christmas decorations, and the place looks awesome. I preferred the decorations in 2009 – this year was a pantomime theme, which is not really to my taste. Having said that, I still loved how it looked, and as usual took lots of pictures while I was there.

This mantelpiece, covered in fruits and greenery (and tiny toy mice!), was my favourite – I loved the natural colours and the lack of tinsel. But a bit of sparkle can be nice too.

The picture on this post was taken on a walk round the grounds. The roof of this little building was covered in moss, which I loved. There were still plenty of leaves on the trees that day, but with the heavy winds and rain we’ve had this week, I expect it all looks very different now.

    I love that moss-covered roof! Your pictures are lovely and I, too, love the mantle!
