Facilities, activities, and things to do at our estate

A new experience

If you're not having fun, it's not worth doing

Our 470-acre playground offers a whole host of activities, from lessons at The School of Cookery and masterclasses in mixology, to lawn games, clay pigeon shooting, and fishing on our lake.

Private cinema

Take a seat in front of the silver screen

Plush, velvet armchairs, a super-sized screen, and an ever-growing library of classic blockbusters, Britain’s first home cinema is the perfect place to while away a few pleasant hours. Sympathetically restored to Lord Beaverbrook’s era, it’s easy to picture Winston Churchill napping in the front row. Plus, the cinema presents a film library personally curated by two of Britain’s most talented directors, Sir Alan Parker and Hugh Hudson.
