Educational Notes:
Care for a stroll? Why not take a walk through these gardens? Just don’t get lost! No proper English country house used to be complete without a maze of lavish gardens and strolling paths, and the grounds of this estate are no exception. From the wood to the vineries, kitchen garden to pleasure grounds, altogether 10,872 acres makeup up this estate’s land. Whether it’s a rectangle, triangle, circle, or any other shape, an acre is equal to 43,560 square feet. That means there’s over 473 million square feet to explore on these grounds! If you were to walk each and every square foot, you would need to bring your walking shoes because it would be a bit of a hike. It may be easier to simply stick to the walking paths, which are much shorter distances to trek.
