Another Dolls House

Yes dear reader, I have another house! I haven't finished Lake View yet, but this one was there and I couldn't resisit it. After buying Lake View I told myself that I would only buy one more house and it had to be a Tudor one. I've always liked the Tudor and Jacobean eras.
There is a dolls house shop nearby that I visit now and again, and when I visited a couple of months ago there it was, right at the front of the shop, just waiting for me! At £375 though it was a tad above what I wanted to pay. The owner wasn't in but her friend said she thought I would be able to pay by instalments, and to phone the following Tuesday. Meanwhile whilst surfing the web looking at Tudor house designs and furnishings I found the shop's website, and there it was online for £275, and when I phoned the following Tuesday the owner said I could have it at that price, and pay for it over a couple of months.


It's very well built, sturdy and in very good condition


Apart from removing some wallpaper, changing the ground floor covering and adding some wood panels and beams it's good to go for furnishing with furniture and wall hangings. The Tudors weren't big on accessorising.

The dolls house shop is one of several well preserved farm buildings at Blake House Craft Centre, which was previously the Blake House farmyard.
There is a lovely flower shop, an antique shop, a gorgeous fabrics and wool shop a good restaurant, and resident peacocks.


This one was fascinated by its reflection, thinking it was another peacock.
It was trying to get into the shop.


I've never seen a white one before.


I waited for a while hoping they would lift their tails but they didn't.

∼ Be safe and well∼

    1. And hopefully not too difficult because there won't be any structual changes.

  4. Oh Polly it’s a lovely house. But how many do you have and where do you keep them? I have one only and it’s shoved in a corner of the grandkiddies bedroom, I’d love to display it but I don’t have the space.

    1. Hello Mary, thank you for visiting. I have 3 full size houses and a small mouse house. I'm lucky to have a fairly large living room to display them.

  6. Oh Polly! It is so exciting to bring home a new dollhouse, and this Tudor is a charmer! When something is meant to be, signs like $100 off and a payment plan leave no room for second thoughts! Have fun dreaming and planning, and then share all the juicy details with us!

  7. The Tudor House is very impressive. I look forward to seeing how you furnish it. Funny how it was £100 less online!

  8. Good for you Polly to check the website and save quite a bit on that house. I was wondering how you mentioned to relocate it, or perhaps it is not as large as it seems?

    1. Hello Beatrice, it is a large house but fortunately I have enough space and cupboards to house them, but I think this will be the last one, I have run out of space!
