Antiques Fair at Cothay Manor

Only a few days late with this posting! Last Saturday was the Antiques Fair at the unbelievably beautiful Cothay Manor in Somerset.

We didn't have a stall at the event, so had the rare luxury (for us) of being able to visit and view at our leisure.

As usual I have no inside pictures of the fair. All I can tell you is the quality of the stands was very impressive. Caroline (Fountain Antiques) had her stall in the stunning bedroom with a vaulted roof. She had piles of immaculate linens and textiles on display.

Outside the air was mild, so I was able to wander around with my camera.....

This strange fellow was on the wall just inside the gatehouse! if you want to visit this stunning 15th century medieval gem click here for the opening times.

this beautifully mellow building must've really made a wonderful setting for the antiques on sale. Glad you enjoyed an un-pressured wander

I will add this to my growing list.. of places to go. I think I am going to need a whole year off to get round them all. It looks like a wonderful interesting place to snoop around.

What a stunning place for a fair. I shall try to remember to visit if I'm ever that way again.
Thank you for the comment on my blog - that was the last lot of snow we had 2 weeks or so ago - more is forcast over the next few days though. I wonder if we'll have a white Christmas?
