Some of the beautiful rooms at Wightwick Manor.
The inscription over the fireplace in the bedroom reads
'Imaginations calm and fair.
The memory like a cloudless air.
The conscience as a sea at rest.'

The gables of Wightwick Manor are complete with quotations.
One says:
'Welcome ever smiles and farewell goes out sighing'

Others include lines from the poem, To Phyllis, to Love and Live with him by Robert Herrick

'What sweets the country can afford shall bless thy bed and bless thy board'
'Live, live with me and thou shalt see the pleasures I'll prepare for thee'
'Thy feasting tables shall be hills with daisies spread and daffodils'
