On a narrow cobbled street at the top of the hill stands a handsome red-brick Georgian house with tranquil walled garden. Its size is considerable for this historic coastal town. The house was built in 1722 and since that time has played host to King George I (after a storm forced his ship ashore) and called home by several illustrious writers, the most famous being this month’s mystery novelist. Here, The Wings of the Dove and The Ambassadors were penned.
If you think you know this month’s mystery home, you could be in with a chance of winning this Pink Roses 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.
