1607 was a good year

In 1607 a glorious stone manor house was built in the small Somerset village of Frome (pronounced like room spelt with an 'f'). Today the same location, called Stonewall Manor, is available to rent as self-catering accommodation. Which is exactly what Garry and have done this weekend, booking the entire house with a group of friends.

Since arriving on Friday evening we've discovered many things about 17th Century architecture. The door lintels are quite low, the floor is perpetually creaky and not a single surface is ever level. It also takes 24 hours to really warm the interior of a large stone manor. This afternoon we decided the cool indoor temperature had created the perfect excuse to visit a nearby, well-heated micro-brewery pub for a leisurely ale.
