Rare survival of a complete estate, with all major buildings including mansion house, servants' quarters, model farm and walled garden
This complete working historic estate is home to the Earls of Lichfield. On show are extensive working servants' quarters with kitchens, laundry, Servants' Hall, brewhouse and coach house. The elegant Mansion House built in 1693 contains artefacts from Admiral Anson's circumnavigation of the world and fine collections of china, silver and furniture. An idyllic model farm (1805) lies in the parkland, with working watermill, kitchens and dairy. Rare breeds of livestock roam the grounds and eight monuments of national importance adorn the wider landscape. Costumed 'first person' guides work in the historic environments producing flour, bread, ale, butter and cheese
