Country House Colouring Book by Amy Jane Adams.

A range of beautiful illustrations to colour in, personalise and make your own, these exquisite artworks by Amy Jane Adams are a wonderful way to unleash your creativity. The artist has explored the length and breadth of Britain to uncover Britain’s hidden countryside gems, and these intricate designs showcase the wonderful world of the country house – from sprawling Edwardian mansion Polesden Lacey and romantic indisfarne castle to modernist masterpiece The Homewood and romantic cottages such as Hill Top. Each artwork explores the interior or exterior of the property, decorating each with the patterns and treasures that can be found inside and incorporating unique details from the history of the house and its inhabitants. This fascinating collection is an imaginative and fun way to explore Britain’s country houses and bring the history of these properties to colourful life.

You can buy this great book in our Servants’ Hall Shop or online on the National Trust Shop.

There are 96 pages in this book so it is jam packed with beautiful historical details. We’d particularly like to draw your attention to this fine illustration of carriages rolling through the countryside. Look familiar?
