About this title


Britain has a wealth of country houses, and this delightful book is a celebration of over 50 of the best examples, with informative text accompanied by breathtaking photography. Country Houses of Britain and Ireland covers the finest examples of the country house in England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. A diverse cross-section of aristocratic dwellings from a range of periods have been selected, including the late medieval Owlpen Manor in Gloucestershire and the beautiful Victorian interior of Knebworth House in Hertfordshire. Tom Quinn's enthusiastic and informative text explores the historical background of the families connected to each house and guides the reader round each sumptuous abode, focusing on architecture, furnishings, artefacts and gardens. Paul Riddle's captivating photography complements the text perfectly, bringing to life the uniqueness of each country house.
