Thus, when the Athenian sculptor Praxiteles carved a 'daringly depicted' ...
Wolterton Hall, Norfolk. 'My house, of my own building, is not extremely large, nor little; is neither to be envied, nor despised... neither magnificent nor contemptible, but convenient,' wrote Horatio Walpole in 1745 of this home in a letter inviting an acquaintance to come and visit.

Portheras Cove in Cornwall looks like the sort of place you'd read about in an old-school adventure story (Famous Five? Treasure Island?) and yet here it is, a real place, and gracing the cover of Country Life this week. The West Country is full of such gems, pinch-yourself places which make you ...
