Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0709584032, Hardcover)

Written in a lively style and illustrated with archive material and specially-shot
photography, Stately Living will open the present-day visitor’s eyes to how the
upstairs and downstairs life of an historic house has changed over the years, giving
them a first-hand insight from owners and staff, then and now.
Compared with their more detached forebears, many families have today to rely
on a large measure of ingenuity and enterprise to ensure the conservation and
survival of their historic homes.

Drawing on archive material, personal anecdote from present owners and their
staff and featuring inspiring photographs and line drawings, Stately Living describes how the same sense of determination and enterprise that created these magnificent houses is now directed to building a range of viable and sustainable businesses.
Stately Living Then and Now is part of a completely new series published by
VisitBritain Publishing in association with the Historic Houses Association.
