The Pennyman family's intimate 18th-century mansion

Experience the spirit of the intimate home of Colonel Jim Pennyman, the last of the Pennyman line, and his arts-loving wife Ruth, as well as the stylish legacy of the 18th-century character 'Wicked' Sir James Pennyman - so named because of his extravagant lifestyle and his gambling with the family fortune.
