This magnificent Tudor-Jacobean country house dates back to the 1500s and has been described as the Hampton Court of the north. It has its royal connections and is the birthplace of the notorious Lord Darnley, the infamous husband of Mary, Queen of Scots.

The house is set in an expanse of 1500 acres of well-kept gardens, mature parkland and woodland. In the 18th Century Capability Brown, the leading landscape architect of the time, created the idealised 'picturesque' landscape that you see today. There are fine views of the house from the East Avenue and Elm Walk plus the Palladian Little Temple creates a timeless focal point in the distance.

There are a number of exquisite rooms, ideal for receptions within the house that are both licensed for Civil Ceremonies and available for dining. In addition, the South Terrace is perfect for a drinks reception, allowing you and your guests to take in the spectacular countryside and surroundings.
