Oh Christmas tree

This Italianate villa was constructed in the 1840s and became a much- loved residence for our VIP, with every Christmas and New Year spent here after her husband’s death. Christmas was a more sober affair than at the usual residence, but there would have been a tree with gifts underneath, and a sumptuous feast would be served. In the New Year there was a tradition for charming tableaux vivants, performed by members of the household.

The prize

If you think you know this month’s mystery home, you could be in with a chance of winning this Winterberry half-pint mug, worth £19.95, from queen of colourful ceramics Emma Bridgewater. Based in the heart of the Potteries in Stoke- on-Trent, Emma’s factory has been making your everyday cup of tea just that little bit more special since 1985. To see the full range, visit
