A Visit to Faringdon House And Lord Berners’ Folly

Faringdon House

We visited Faringdon House where the owner Sofka Zinovieff, the author of ‘Mad Boy, Lord Berners, my grandfather and me’ guided us round the house and gardens. Sofka is the grand-daughter of the ‘Mad Boy’, Robert Heber-Percy, and she gave us an account of the many glamorous people who had passed through Faringdon House in the 1930s.
