Notes: We next reach the kitchen garden, with its high wall, at the corner of which, forming, as it were, part of the wall, is the gardenerís cottage. One would expect a couple of rooms here, as only a corner window and a couple of small ones besides are to be seen; but inside we find kitchen, scullery, sitting room and three bedrooms, etc, the entrance door and most of the windows being towards the garden. Mr Truefitt seems to be great in corner windows. Whenever he can with propriety put one, there we find it; and it not only is most pleasing externally, but it is exceedingly nice inside the room to be able to see in two directions. The corner window to this cottage is a triple one; the corner of the room is cut off, and the window extends also on each side, - so that it is a three light window in three different planes.
