Reasons for trip

Following the BBC Manor Reborn series about the refurbishment of Avebury Manor we visited the property on the last week-end in November.

It was excellent to be able to touch the items in the rooms, and try to bounce on the exercise chair in the dining room, and you could even sit on the beds if you wished. All the ground floor rooms were well done and a different sort of experience visiting a property and being able to pick things up and look at them.

Each room is a different period, with a Tudor bedroom with a wonderfully painted freeze, but not so sure about the brighter colours on the decorated ceiling.

The only room we did not like was the Queen Anne bedroom, as the marbling paintwork which was too bright and seemed to clash, and as you entered the room we just thought of a stage set. The sky colours on the ceiling were more acceptable.

The kitchen was excellent, well designed as if the staff had just walked out in the middle of washing up, only the floor was vinyl which seemed a bit odd.

They have restored the kitchen walled garden, and there were still some vegetables in the garden.

It is a National Trust property, and of course a wonderful place to visit with the ancient Avebury stone circle, Church, Barn and Museum. An excellent day out.
