Our first National Trust excursion, 30 minutes from home, to the home of authors Henry James and E.F. Benson. Lamb House sits at the top of a hill reached by rounded-cobblestone streets.
Around the corner on West Street the house and its garden wall square the corner with views down to St. Mary’s church.
Inside the house has little of James’ original belongings, but is beautiful with wood panelled walls and plank floors.
But the gardens are the real stars of the property.
After our visit and a very good early dinner at Simply Italian back home to Summer Hill Oast–and I drove!
