Start your tour in the house, which showcases a large collection of fine art and opulent furnishings. Head out to the gardens, where you'll find a hedgerow labyrinth and the world's largest rock garden. Afterward, take your rest in the Tea Rooms while enjoying traditional English tea and homemade scones.
