On its completion, it was the largest

private house in England. It subsequently

became the palace of King James I and

Charles I. After Charles was held prisoner

here following his defeat in the civil war,

much of the palace was demolished.

In 1870 the remaining wing was restored

and expanded into the beautiful house

you see today with its suites of elegant

rooms, overlooking beautiful Grade I

gardens, themselves commanding superb

views of rolling farmland.
