Montacute House and Lyte Carey Manor

We are now staying at Penny and John's home in Hay-on-Wye. It is lovely to be here once again and great to catch up with dear friends. On Tuesday on the way to Hay we visited another 2 lovely National Trust properties. The first was Montacute House which is an amazing house which is basically the same as it was 400 years ago. It was used extensively in the filming of the series, Wolf Hall.

There was some lovely embroidery in the house.

 They even had a display of horse riding, as in the Tudor times, on the green.
We weren't far from Lytes Carey Manor so popped in there for a visit. This is a lovely medieval house.

 This stump work was amazing. It was all stitched around a mirror. It was a fairly modern piece which was done in the medieval style.

 This hexagon quilt was on one of the beds.
