From the outside, The Swan Inn at Swinbrook in the Cotswolds is a classic country pub, complete with pretty honey-stone brickwork and festooned with wisteria.
Inside, however, it's a different story. Owned by the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, the last of the Mitford sisters, The Swan Inn is a public house with a decidedly aristocratic pedigree.
Newly refurbished, the pub boasts river views, 11 luxury bedrooms and a restaurant that serves up freshly cooked seasonal food.

I stayed at The Swan last year, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The pub is very cosy, as are the rooms, but I found the food to be "out of my comfort zone". It was tasty though.

The Rt. Hon. the Earl of Dudley died on 16 November 2013, aged 93.

William Humble David Ward was born on 5 January 1920, the elder son of the 3rd Earl of Dudley and of his wife, née Lady Rosemary Leveson-Gower (herself the only daughter of the 4th Duke of Sutherland). He was a godson of the then Prince of Wales, later King Edward VIII and Duke of Windsor, who was a friend of his father's.
He firstly married in 1946 to the Argentinian Stella Carcano y Morra; they became parents of one son and two daughters before divorcing in 1961.
In the same year he remarried to Scottish actress Maureen Swanson (1932-2011), by whom he had seven more children, five daughters and two sons (one of whom died at birth).
He succeeded to his father in 1969 as the 4th Earl of Dudley. He is now succeeded as the 5th Earl by his eldest son, David.

The stakes were always high: a £35 million inheritance including two grand English country estates and a 17th Century Tuscan villa of almost unmatched beauty.

But when last year the 7th Earl of Durham, son of the late Lord Lambton, was sued by three of his sisters for a share of his father’s possessions, it provoked a dispute of such bitterness that it almost tore apart one of Britain’s most famous aristocratic families.

It even called into question the ancient principle of primogeniture – the right of the eldest son to inherit everything – in a very public echo of the Downton Abbey storyline.

It has also forced the sale of a remarkable £3.5 million portrait by Lucian Freud, a work that sheds a fascinating new light on the artist, and the Lambtons.

The saga has brought back to the fore the late lord’s involvement in one of the most notorious sex scandals of the 1970s.

A Highland mansion belonging to one of Britain’s richest men - and once used by Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales - is being sold at a knockdown £450,000.

The 15 bedroom Lochmore Lodge, in Sutherland, belongs to Gerald Grosvenor, the 6th Duke of Westminster.

The Duke - Britain’s richest landowner and godfather to Prince William - had wanted to demolish the run down pile, one of his least used but most historic properties, and return the site to grassland.

But after a dramatic intervention by conservation agency, Historic Scotland, the bulldozers have been halted, and the property put on the market at a bargain price.

Every time there is an article about the Duke of Westminster, it mentions that he is William's godfather which isn't true. The Duchess, his wife, is William's godmother.

I guess that because the Duchess is William's godmother, The Daily Mail (or should that be Fail? ) automatically assumed that the Duke is William's godfather. An equivalent would be saying that the Duchess of Cambridge is Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark's godmother because William is his godfather. It's well known that this is not how the godparentage (is this a word?) system works.

True or not, I need to remember this line, "If I did say these things, I'm sorry and if I need to, I will apologise (sp)."
