From the publisher

'Charming - a love-letter to home, history, and nature.'
LEAH BROAD, Author of Quartet

'A tender and illuminating history of an overlooked world.'

'Truly a revelation on every page.'

'A richly textured book, replete with illuminating discoveries and observations.'

'A wide-ranging meditation on place and past.'

Gavin considered himself an urban being... until he met his husband, Alastair. Together, they bought Stepps House in Pembridge, Herefordshire - on love at first sight. But then came the question: 'How old is it?' With its ancient beams, the date they'd been given seemed out by centuries. As Gavin traced Stepps House through various hands and eras, he saw a past emerge that resonates powerfully with our present.

Mixing history and art, memoir and landscape, A Home for All Seasons is grand in its sweep and intimate in its account of rural life.
