The Grounds

As if transported to the 16th-century of which the estate originates, the grounds echo the grandeur and historic-feel of the home. Hidden just behind the entrance, a sleepy willow falls softly over a small lake, the most picturesque and peaceful of spots to enjoy doing nothing except taking in your spectacular surroundings. The enclosed wall garden feels as much fantastical as it does a traditional, English bolthole

The old apple tree, immaculately manicured lawns and the borders of hydrangeas and ivy reaching high across the Derbyshire stone walls make this a serene spot to entertain guests. Enjoy as a quiet oasis during the day with a spot of croquet, or see it transformed in the evening as waiters drift effortlessly through a crowd of guests dressed in their finery, serving drinks and canapes just before the music and dancing begins
