Highclere Castle aka How I became a Downton fan

I must admit, I didn’t watch Downton Abbey when it was first on television. It has a very profound reason: it was a period in my life when I was not interested in watching television or series at all. As a result,…

Ashdown House Front View

A baroque house with a love story – Ashdown House
