I have this on the self and I don't know WHY I haven't read it yet, because I am a big Vita fan and Knole is such a fabulous place.

Cornflower

I've never been to Knole but would love to visit it - and Sissinghurst, too.

Margaret Powling

I have visited both Sissinghurst, where Vita and Harold created their world-famous garden, and I have visited Knole, which Vita loved so much yet couldn't inherit, and I have to say that Sissinghurst is my kind of place and Knole isn't - large, yes; historic, yes; awe-inspiring, yes. But my overwhelming impression of Knole - with its ancestral portraits, carved oak, panelling, and furniture - was that is it Very, Very Brown!

Cornflower

Wonderful description, Margaret! I shall remember that, if I ever go.

Dark Puss

What do you mean if!? It's not like travelling to Tierra del Fuego. Come on, live dangerously and leave Edinburgh for a few days.

Your irritating feline friend. P xx

It takes a lot to get me to leave home; I've turned down four or five London invitations in the last month alone.
