  2. Lovely locations. Have only been to Haddon Hall, but it's a marvellous place. Stamford isn't far from here either. :)

  3. Nooooooooooo...US residents only? Skunked again!

    Actually, I can't complain because I have been to Haddon Hall, Castle Howard and Bath (and Chatsworth and Lyme Park for that matter). I would love to see Lacock, Squerryes Court, Highclere and Blenheim among other spots but I suppose I would never have won it anyway!

    Good luck to all my American friends.
