The houses and castles of the Lake District, secreted among the lakes and fells, are inextricably linked with their dramatic setting. Many are architecturally distinguished, even more have intriguing tales to tell. In this book Christopher Holliday explores in detail the history and architecture of the houses and the personal stories of their owners through the centuries right up to the present day. Clive Boursnell's stunning photographs capture the houses, inside and out, their gardens and their setting. Houses covered include: Levens Hall, Sizergh Castle, Holker Hall, Blackwell, Dalemain, Hutton-in-the-Forest, Dove Cottage, Rydal, Mirehouse, Brantwood, Hill Top, and many more.
