In case anyone is pining for some more English scenes, here we go.
On a day out last Summer we visited Rudyard Kiplings place and Bodiam Castle and then on the way home called in at Scotney. The first two I posted on but never got around to posting on the third, Scotney Castle.
Scotney Castle was home to the Hussey family and in 1835 Edward Hussey III took the picturesque style as inspiration and commisioned the building of a new country house in the Elizabethan style.
The gardens are designed around the ruins of a 14th century moated castle so here we see the house, the ruins and gardens and the 18th century Scotney Castle.
