It has landscaped gardens that gently slope down to the river below in which you can walk forever and masses and masses of flowering shrubs..
..and this one.. the handkerchief tree I think it is called..
I think one of the reasons man loves dogs is because they don't care how silly they look...
Maud certainly does not care as long as she can stick her head out of the window!
I think Agatha Christie would have liked Maud with her independent attitude.
The house is super cosy and I particularly loved the library. It was just the right size, not too big and with lots of books and a nice sofa and some comfy chairs..here's Agatha Christie herself in there..
There were beautiful camelia's ..
....and the landscaped park is lovely to walk in, so we explored quite a bit together with the dogs , all the way to the river..where there is a sort of landing area called The Battery..photographed when we visited it ..
This is the ( same ) battery with Agatha Christie and her husband, Max Mallowan..
As you can see the view has not changed a dot in probably forty or fifty years...so relaxing and lovely.
It's a super place -I absolutely adored the gardens...and we and the dogs had a really fun and happy time on the Battery with the lovely views over the river....
so I can really recommend visiting..It's a lovely and super homely family place , and if you are interested in visiting and want know more details you can read more about it here .
Have a great rest of the week!!
