 HM Queen Victoria stayed at Woolbrook Cottage in Sidmouth as the infant Princess Alexandrina 1819-20. Built in the 1500s, it is now the Grade 1 listed Royal Glen Hotel. Her former nursery room still has the creaking floorboards the royal Nanny complained of!

The top pane marks where a stray bullet from a youth hunting birds in the wooded glen narrowly missed Princess “Drina” in her nursery at Woolbrook Cottage, Sidmouth. 

 Rambling foliage on the ceramic was inspired by climbing plants such as these in Woodstock.
