Brownsover Hall, Rugby, England

The place we stayed in Rugby had so much character. Built in 1857,
Victorian Gothic style- can't you tell how creepy it'd be at the right time
of day? The insides were a wonderful, mixed-up, jumble- a few stairs here,
a long hallway with many doors, a random door to another curved staircase to
another hall and more doors. So much fun. The window is the view from our
room. I spent an entire day sitting at the patio table looking and
listening to the outdoors; many birds, people playing croquet (what could
feel more appropriate), having a splendid lunch of goat cheese atop a salad.
It was perfect.
