Several years ago, I went to England for an antique auction; there was a splendid Welsh dresser that I wanted to buy for our family. My grandmother had a beautiful 18th century dresser which I did not inherit, so I decided I would find another one. After my successful purchase, I spent some time with my friends the Ross family in Bridport/Stoke Abbott who were antique dealers specializing in 18th century furniture. During my visit, we spent a wonderful afternoon at MONTACUTE HOUSE. The house was spectacular, and I will never forget my first visit. The house’s restoration was a cooperative effort obetween THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY, several private loans, and the National Trust. The gardens were beautiful. THE HOUSE HAD BEEN SAVED FOR THE NATION. I highlight MONTACUTE HOUSE because almost weekly I am asked by our visitors in London where they should go for a week outside London after they stay in this magnificent city. This magnificent house should be considered for their itinerary.
