A golf course, a pet cemetery and a suite ¬fit for royalty: welcome to Polesden Lacey, former home of the indomitable – and controversial – socialite, Maggie Greville (also known as Mrs Ronnie), and country retreat for the Edwardian era’s rich and famous. This guidebook uncovers the life of Mrs Greville and the experiences of those who visited and worked for her at Polesden Lacey. Find out what life was like for her army of servants; marvel at the glittering gold Saloon, where weekend guests were entertained by renowned London acts; and discover what the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George VI and Queen Elizabeth) got up to on their honeymoon here. Additional features include an extensive guide to Polesden Lacey’s gardens, and in-depth information on some of Mrs Greville’s most important collections, such as her Fabergé objects, and paintings.
