Lovely day at Chartwell, this was once the house of Britain's Prime Minister, Sir Winston Churchill from 1922 up until his death in January 1965. Chartwell is situated in Kent, in the South East of England and was designed by Churchill's architect Phillip Tilden. Shown in one of the pictures is one of his favourite rooms in the house. This was the dining room which saw the likes of Sir Anthony Eden, Lord Camrose and Diana Mitford sitting at the table sampling the culinary delights of Georgina Landemare, who was Churchill's personal cook from 1939 up until 1954. Outside, the house has panoramic views accross the Weald of Kent. Chartwell boasts 20 acres of land surrounding the house and then in addition to this, 57 acres of park and woodland, views of which, Churchill himself would have once been seen painting. This lovely house was, upon Churchill's death, acquired by the #nationaltrust. Today this house can be visited by anyone. The National Trust Cafe caters for adults, children and various dietary requirements, one of which includes Gluten Free options. I had a gluten free Lemon Drizzle minature loaf cake with a pot of Earl Grey Tea. The lemon drizzle was sweet, crunchy and had a good texture. Would highly recommend a visit.
