Secret Houses of the Cotswolds by Jeremy Musson

This is a gorgeous book which includes the history and pictures of such beautiful houses as Burford Priory, whose owner once defied Charles 1, and Clevenage - Trenwith in the Poldark series. These historical houses have stunning features, such as decoration in the Arts and Crafts style, antique stained-glass, and Regency four-poster beds.  There are interviews with the owners who tell how why they bought the houses (unless they were inherited) and how they restored them.

I found the writing a bit staid and it was hard to read online because the print is quite small.


This is a must-buy for anyone who loves beautiful historical houses and architecture.

I received this free ebook from Net Galley in return for an honest review.
