A La Ronde

What can I say about A La Ronde?

It has to be one of the most unusual places I’ve visited, also one of the smallest National Trust locations.

The whole house is filled with cabinets and bookcases stuffed full with shells, they are everywhere!

Also the house is quite unique in that it has 16 sides. Built by two cousins (or sisters, but I’m sure it was cousins) the idea for the central part of the house is ‘looking up through the sea’. So as you stand in the centre room and look up into the gallery area it feels like looking toward the surface of the sea.

It is however worth going to have a look and the views from the top floor looking out over the mouth of the Exe are fantastic.
