Just about a two hour scenic drive from London lays South Wraxall Manor, one of the most celebrated country houses in England. Dating from the 15th century, John and Gela Taylor’s magnificent home has exceptional architectural features including two of the finest Jacobean fireplaces in existence. When the BBC produced the series “The Country House Revealed” they chose South Wraxall Manor for episode one, finding so much of English history in it’s story, from Henry VIII and Walter Raleigh, to Shakepeare and Ian Fleming. Gela Taylor is one of the founders of Juicy Couture and John Taylor is a member of Duran Duran. I had the pleasure of staying there for 3 nights due to the generosity of a friend of mine. The Taylor’s could not have been more fun, interesting and gracious hosts. Their staff was warm and friendly. I got to stay in the Sir Walter Raleigh bedroom. An experience I will never forget.
