This is Lucy Boston's house in Hemingford Grey.
The Norman widows are genuine and the main part was built pre 1150. Her Green Knowe children's books are set here and the hero Tolley's room is just as described. A full account with pictures is found in Celia Eddy's online magazine site at the above link. She shows pictures of the patchwork. These were peeled back one by one on the bed by Diana Boston, Lucy's DIL, when we were there but no photographs were allowed in the house.
