Dreams of Spring

Spring has finally sprung in our neck of the woods and our thoughts have turned to weekend escapes.  One of our dream holidays has been to spend a long weekend in an "olde" English manor house...something with a little pedigree...and absolutely nothing younger than 17th century (because if we wanted 18th century shenanigans we'd go to Boston).  Below is a compilation of what that wonderful house would undoubtedly look like.  In our minds we clearly have no budget for this trip, and since it would bore most of you to death to see what the real budget allows for, we think you'll enjoy our made-up manor house instead.  Bon Weekend!
