On a recent visit to the National Trust’s Godolphin House in Cornwall the weather was very grey, there were lots of other people around and I had 2 kids under the age of 7 in my sole charge – ideal for taking photos then! I decided to try and pick out some nice details from this lovely old house and as the weather was so poor I thought I’d do them in black and white.
This is the main entrance to the house with its row of granite columns

Although this has the look and feel of a cellar it actually is on ground level
This was taken in the King’s Garden, a walled garden to the rear of the house

Godolphin House isn’t like the other big estates in Cornwall. It has an older much more informal feel about it. Hopefully these photos have conveyed a little of that.
