Enjoy the nostalgia of a 1960s-style country Christmas, reminiscent of the parties hosted by last owners Barbara and Alan Clutton-Brock. The champagne's on ice, cocktails are ready and the dining table is laid out for Christmas dinner...

Explore rooms decorated to represent the Clutton-Brocks' chaotic but cosy style, with paper chains, tinsel, trees and piles of wrapped presents. Head to the Great Chamber to have a go at a classic board game and watch some festive television.

Younger visitors can look out for Christmas mice hidden throughout the house.
