Sarah and Bernard Taylor opened up the doors to their beautiful home in Rycote Park for R.A.B.I. They invited 52 guests to a tour of their historic estate and raised £1,400 for the charity.
Rycote Park, near Thame in Oxfordshire, was the site of a mansion originally built in Tudor times. It was almost completely demolished in June 1807 and all that remains today is part of the south-west tower.
Sarah led the tour, taking the guests around the chapel as well as the beautiful gardens. She explained the history of the estate, including the many monarchs who had stayed in the mansion. The evening ended with a drinks reception in the main barn.
