For a while now, Lady Ashcombe has written a monthly column for Cotswold Life. It records her observations about many things, and her viewpoint is unique as she is an American lady living in Sudeley Castle. Reflections on castle life include the relentless season of events, such as Rose Week and the new Henry VIII exhibition, and her lifelong dream of bringing Sudeley Castle back to life. When she and her late husband first tackled the castle it was a ruin, and Lady Ashcombe is responsible for turning it into the successful business it is today. There are also recollections of her family growing up at the castle, and a story of how her daughter befriended a badger, and even pushed it around in a pram. Elizabeth Hurley's infamous wedding is also included, as well as looking at the Tudor history that has made Sudeley famous, being the burial place of Katherine Parr.
