Waddeson Manor

Wow - driving into the property made me feel like I was entering the world of royal elite, slowly winding upward through beautifully manicured gardens toward a great big hunk of a mansion....thinking all along that a butler and housing service of 15 people would greet us at the entrance, take our bags and rush us into the great room for tea.

So, no one greeted us....but a fantastic view of the manor house surely did!

I was captivated by it's sheer size and ornate beauty!

I could see how the grounds would look quite remarkable in the spring, with all the gardens in bloom. However, this trip early in the year meant all the property was covered in lots of snow! Nonetheless, still quite a breathtaking bit of land (even better if the cute guy in the photo comes along with it!)

And, of course, you can just see how people would mistake us for the owners of this fine estate....

The architectural details really interested me. Check out the ornate water feature and groovy facade of the "house":
