This immense 17th century hose near the picturesque village of Saffron Walden was built on a former monastery and regularly hosted King James I. It is acclaimed for its elegant grounds designed by the famous landscaper Capability Brown, and includes a special 1880s Service Wing where you can explore a re-enactment of what life would have been like 'below the stairs' in a house like this in Victorian times
