The romantic tale of one couple's escape from the city to restore their dream home in the country
Judy Corbett is an antiquarian bookbinder. Her husband Peter Welford is an architectural historian and painter. Despite its glittering history (monarchs from King Charles I to Queen Mary have stayed here) and its grand dimensions - about 10,000 square feet divided into fifty rooms - Gwydir is very much the Welford's home.
