January – A room adorned in red

This period medieval manor, dating to 1420, promises drama and intrigue. Its eclectic architecture reflects the tastes of its past owners, one of whom, pioneering and enigmatic, was regarded by many as an oddity – they would spend much of their time journalling in the study. This dark and masculine house has many oak-panelled rooms where clandestine meetings were held and codes set and solved. Many secrets lie within – this room provided a place where one
could lock oneself away.


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.
