Description
Wimpole Hall

Magnificent 18th-century house

The grandest house in Cambridgeshire, set in an extensive wooded park, the Hall has fine interiors designed by Gibbs, Flitcroft and Soane, and fascinating servants' quarters. The garden has thousands of daffodils in April and colourful parterres in July and August. The walled garden is best seen from June to August. The park, landscaped by Bridgeman, Brown and Repton, has spectacular vistas, a Gothic folly and serpentine lakes, and offers delightful walks
