It was great to see people enjoying this great mansion house as if it were their own home. This lady sitting on a bench with her feet up reading the newspaper tells me she’s right at home.
Information From National Trust Site
This spectacular country estate overlooking the River Thames, open daily for most of the year, was once the glittering hub of society as the home of Waldorf and Nancy Astor. Later in the 20th century it was infamously associated with the Profumo Affair. The various formal gardens include topiary and colourful seasonal planting in the Long Garden and the celebrated parterre with its breathtaking views. An outstanding collection of sculpture and statues from the ancient and modern worlds adorn the gardens. Part of the house, now let as a private hotel, is open to visitors at limited times
