Magnificent estate with mansion, grand garden, deer park, farm and Tudor old hall
This is one of the most complete historic estates open to visitors. The early 19th-century Wyatt house sits amid a landscaped deer park and is opulently decorated, providing a fine setting for the Egerton family’s collections of pictures, books, china, glass, silver and specially commissioned Gillow furniture. The theme of Victorian grandeur extends into the garden, with fernery, orangery, rose garden, Tower garden, pinetum and Italian and Japanese gardens. The restored Walled Garden includes a kitchen garden and magnificent glasshouses, where traditional methods of gardening are used. Other features include the Tudor old hall, a 1930s working farm, a children’s play area and speciality shops
