A weekend at Langley Gatehouse by Nandini Das

‘Sturdy Jacobean brick and stone and timber of the gatehouse have persisted stubbornly’

Nandini Das, Professor of Early Modern English Literature and Culture, is fresh from a break at Langley Gatehouse. She has penned a blog in response, noting the ‘recent conversations across space and time in the carefully preserved visitors’ logbooks... Their thick, creamy pages are full of handwritten notes of people who have stayed here before us. Moments are captured in their lines just as they are in every groove and hollow of the building.’

The impact of your holiday

Every break safeguards precious places

With each holiday booking, we can thatch and plaster. We can gild, grain and harl, reapply limewash, repoint and redecorate. Here we highlight a handful of recent maintenance works, each renewing and revitalising precious places.
