Ilex Bar & Brasserie in the Courtyard at Holker Hall, United Kingdom

Holker Hall, home of the Cavendish Family, has never been bought or sold but passed by inheritance through just three families: the Prestons, the Lowthers and the Cavendishes, with each generation leaving its impression by either altering the landscape or by changing the house by adding, refacing, embellishing or even rebuilding, as happened to the New Wing after the disastrous fire of 1871. There is an excellent display about the famous fire. We took a tour in the morning, had lunch at The Ilex Bar and Brasserie then wandered the Hall and Gardens by ourselves in the afternoon.
