One of the highlights of our visit was the recently opened Victorian service wing: kitchen, scullery, laundry, dairy, and larder. These areas were just as beautifully restored and just as interesting as the rooms in the main house, if not more so:
I just wish my washing up pile were this lovely (although I'm sure the washing up itself wasn't so lovely for the scullery maids involved):
The vinehouse is particularly stunning. It was originally constructed around 1804, and is one of the oldest and largest in the country.
Inside the vinehouse we found wonderful citrus, including Meyer lemons and Seville oranges:
Numerous varieties of tomatoes in all shapes, sizes, and colors:
And gorgeous figs:
I only wish we could have returned for Apple Weekend. We've already added it to our to-do list for next year!
