Classical ruins in the parklands. Schloss Glienicke was designed by Karl Friedrich Schinkel, with gardens by Peter Joseph Lenné, from 1824 and 30 years onwards. The romantic gardens are interspersed with numerous features and architectures such as the Casino Villa, a cloister courtyard, romantic classical ruins and belvederes.


This Georgian rectory in the Cotswolds

 is an historic property. In the late 1800’s the Reverend Edward Litton lived here, and was sometimes visited by his friend from Oxford, Charles Dodgson - better known as Lewis Carroll. It is said that Litton’s daughter, Alice, was the inspiration for the heroine of ‘Alice in Wonderland’.
