The Wimpole Estate is a working estate with lots to see and do. The mansion, at the heart of the estate, is evidence of Elsie Bambridge's success in creating a home.
The intimate rooms and contrasted with beautiful and unexpected Georgian interiors, including Soane's breathtaking Yellow Drawing Room and wonderful plunge bath. The fascinating basement corridor also offers a glimpse into life below stairs.
Take a stroll around the colourful parterre garden and wander through the Pleasure Grounds to the walled garden, abundant with fruit, vegetables and herbaceous borders. Or you are even invited to visit the Home Farm where you will be greeted by the noisy pigs and cattle.
Stride out across the landscape park, among the rare-breed cattle, and imagine the previous owners planning their visions of grand avenues and spectacular vistas.
