From Kirkus Reviews:

The popular illustrator of The Story of an English Village (1979), etc., expands into larger format, without his signature half pages but large enough to accommodate explanatory captions. The elegant country house is first glimpsed from a nearby hill in Tudor times; the scenes that follow suggest changes in the garden, park, and exterior (rebuilt after a fire in the early Stuart period; the Regency produced a new Gothic fa‡ade and conservatory) as well as activities (upstairs and down) and furnishings within. As always, Goodall's watercolors are richly evocative, their many details carefully researched. A bored child, member of a modern tour group, appears in the last picture; she might have been more interested if she'd seen this book before her visit. For imaginative readers, Anglophiles, and travelers. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 5+) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Using his trademark detailed watercolors, Goodall creates a 500-year pictorial history of an English estate. Large format, double-page spreads provide a slice-of-life look at changes surrounding this house in dress, decor, work, and social activities. One to several double-page spreads are devoted to each era, from the Tudor period to the present day. Framed along the bottom of each page are, on the left side, the name and dates of a time period and, on the right, a short phrase describing the scene above. Goodall draws readers into the book with numerous tidbits of information about the lifestyles. Although the overall concept is tried and true as seen in other books such as his The Story of a Castle (McElderry, 1986), this offering remains fresh and engaging. --Martha Topol, Northwestern Michigan College, Traverse City, MI
