  1. Wow, and there's even the lake from which Mr Darcy emerged to become the all-time winner of the Mr Wet T-shirt Competition!

  2. Another one I've visited with friends. the garden was out of this world.

    And yes, Darcy would take some beating in those stakes.

  3. Oh yes, the wet t-shirt, how could I forget? :)
