Cotswold Holiday

Kelmscott



 

 William Morris on a house at Kelmscott

Manor cottages are a part of the Kelmscott estate and were built to commemorate Morris

 Kelmscott Manor from the lane

 another of the cottages on the estate, Garden Cottage

 

 Friends walk along the road to Kelmscott Manor

 Pictures taken inside Kelmscot Manor are not available for commercial use. It opens to the public in Summer on Wenesdays and Saturdays

 The manor dates from around 1570, with a late 17th-century wing, and is listed Grade I, but the interior

 was extensivley refurnished by William Morris and his associates after he bought the house with

 Dante Gabriel Rossetti in 1871

 

 

 The lighting fitting was designed to cast a shadow on the ceiling

 A detail of the embroidered bedspread

 a four-poster bed

 and the view from a window looking out to Garden Cottage and North Road Barn

 across the croquet lawn. I'm not sure this was a croquet lawn when Morris lived here

 

 The peacocks are dull - I'm sure they would have been polished in the old days

 Adam and Eve

 

 The attic rooms in the roof - famously photographed by Frederick Evans

 

 Some of these may have been occupied by children, others by servants
