attingham: the houses: broughton

Week 1 favorites ~ Broughton Castle ~ the home of Lord and Lady Saye and Sele. Someone last night asked me which, of all the houses I visited, would I want to live in, and I immediately replied: Broughton. The house is warm and welcoming, and the gardens completely seductive. Perhaps it was because the day we visited was the first time we had seen sun in ages, but we all wandered around as if drugged by the scent of roses and honeysuckle. Anyway, it is one of those houses that you just have to feel...it is not about paintings, or furniture...it is all about place.
