Harewood House

My patient-when-he-wants husband usually only has a stately home in him once every few months.
Last weekend I finally convinced him to take me to Harewood Home, home of the Queen's cousin and somewhere I'd visited in winter when the 'upstairs' rooms where closed.
Despite whinging about the expensive entry price, he soon settled into enjoying the visit. The grounds are extensive, especially considering it's location of 8 miles from Leeds city centre.
Capability Brown designed some of the grounds which really make the estate.
Sadly weren't allowed to take pictures inside the house, but we loved exploring the beautiful rooms and admiring the skill of craftsmen who built the house, including Chesterfield.
