And back to the house of our dreams, Broom Parc. Here is what the Guardian said about it a few years ago (some of this repeats Monday’s Post, but in a good way: ‘Wuthering Heights meets Jamaica Inn. Broom Parc (broom being a type of gorse and parc meaning ‘place’ in Cornish) is a grand Georgian cliff-top house. In the early 1990s, it was used as the location for TV mini-series, the Camomile Lawn, starring Felicity Kendal and Paul Eddington. The entrance is almost a museum piece with its stone-flagged floor, grand staircase, huge fireplace and French windows on to the front lawn. The TV in the vast guests’ lounge and the fridge in the dining room are the only tokens to modernity. The coastal walks from the house are wonderful. The proprietors are also dog friendly.’
