In 1895, Sir Heaton Rhodes built a very fine pile on the Canterbury Plains and he lived there until his death in 1957, when he was given the closest thing to a state funeral. Fifty years later, Hall Cannon and Miles Refo bought the house and turned it into one of the country’s finest lodges. Now, they’ve released a book – For the Love of a Place – and I was lucky enough to write it. It’s a beautiful book, celebrating the food, architecture and fabulous hospitality of one of the country’s finest historic houses.
