Montacute, Somerset

Review of Montacute by Penelope Crawford on June 16th, 2008
I visited Montacute on the way home from Cornwall to East Sussex recently and hope very much to call in again some day. Meanwhile though, can you please let me know whether the Parrot tapestry has been charted and is it possible to buy a kit or the chart, as I would very much like to be able to sew it myself. It is Victorian and affectionately known as 'Polly' by the curators there.
