Mottisfont Abbey



Tudor mansion, Georgian makeover- with a medieval priory buried inside. The interiors are 1930s pompous- lots of fake marble- with the exception of a room painted in trompe l'oeil by the witty and wonderful Rex Whistler- the last country house job he undertook before going off to be killed in Normandy.
