To relax on the majestic gardens of the golden honey coloured building of Farnborough Hall is quite an experience. Home of the Holbech family since 1684 and standing in the heart of rural Warwickshire, the hall was reconstructed in the early 18th Century. It is surrounded by superb landscape gardens and is the ideal place to stand and enjoy a cool drink. The interiors of the building are equally enchanting, if not more. The main highlight is the Staircase dome, with incredibly ornate plasterwork depicting flowers and fruit. The intricate plasterwork done inside is considered to be some of the finest historic plasterwork in England. The building is full of artwork and artifacts collected during the owner's 18th-century Grand Tour.
