Avebury Manor

On the way home from Granny and Grandad’s (they very kindly put us up when we went to Thomas Land) we stopped at one of our favourite spots: Avebury.

We have stopped there many times before but have never noticed Avebury Manor – a National Trust property nestled in the heart of the stones.

It was derelict and then the BBC and NT undertook a project to bring it back to life. Every room is decorated in the style of a different era.

The unique thing about this house is that you can touch absolutely everything – and are in fact encouraged too. The only thing they ask you not to touch is the wall paper in the dining room as it was hand painted.

We were even allowed to bounce on the Tudor beds!

And play with the secret doors

We rather liked this painting too

Afterwards we (Inigo and I) were exhausted so we looked to the Big D for a lift – the human totem pole lives again!
