After visiting the house, explore the grounds which include the unusual Garden of Surprises and the contemporary Sculpture Garden. You will then travel the short distance to Stamford, claimed by Sir Walter Scott as ‘the finest stone town in England’. Free time to explore the quaint streets and alleyways of this historic and compact town.
