History Of Tiltwood Estate

Tiltwood House is part of a large 15 bedroom Estate built in the late Victorian era by George Emmanuelle Scaramanga. The name "Scaramanga" may be familiar to you as the villain in Ian Fleming's ... "The Man With the Golden Gun" ... Also a movie!

It is alleged that Ian Fleming went to Eton with George Ambrose Scaramanga (part of the Scaramanga family) and had a falling out. Apparently Ian Fleming used the name of Scaramanga for his villain as a way of taking revenge.
