This guide has been described as the National Trust's bible, and does full justice to the Trust's illustrious collection of color photographs, and showcases recent acquisitions such as the Gothic wonder of Tyntesfield, John Lennon's childhood home Mendips, and William Morris' Arts and Crafts Red House. Magnificent landscapes, including the breathtaking coast of Cornwall, Snowdonia, the Peak District, and the lunar scenery of Stragford Lough are set beside the Trust's great gardens such as Sissinghurst Castle in Kent and Stourhead Landscape Garden in Wiltshire. The Trust's country houses of course feature in all their varied beauty—from the Tudor splendour of Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire through to the magnificent Victoriana at Cragside in Northumberland.
