country life november 11 2015

This week’s Country Life features a leader written by the future King of England HRH The Prince of Wales, where he sets out the importance of looking after our small local businesses and, in particular, farmers who are the custodians of so much of our land.

Elsewhere Jeremy Musson admires the exemplary job done at Dumfries House, which The Prince of Wales was instrumental in saving for the nation, and we talk to the nephew of Ian Fleming, Fergus Fleming.

Christopher Rowell and Wolf Burchard pay homage to the glittering legacy left by Louis XlV, 300 years after the stylish French king’s death, while Simon Hopkinson makes delicious recipes with rice, and we tour some of the most stunning properties for sale in Ireland.
