A working estate still guided by the seasons, with an impressive mansion and Home Farm

The mansion, at the heart of this estate, is evidence of Elsie Bambridge's success in creating a home.

Intimate rooms contrast with beautiful and unexpected Georgian interiors, including Soane's breathtaking Yellow Drawing Room and wonderful plunge bath. The fascinating basement corridor offers a glimpse into life below stairs.

Stroll around the colourful parterre garden and wander through the Pleasure Grounds to the walled garden, abundant with fruit, vegetables and herbaceous borders.

Home Farm contrasts the traditional farmyard with the noisy modern piggery and cattle sheds.

Stride out across the landscape park, among the rare-breed cattle, and imagine the previous owners planning their visions of grand avenues and spectacular vistas.
