Explore the beautiful Wimpole Estate

Wimpole Hall Farm is a magnificent 18th century house, reputed to be the largest in Cambridgeshire was built for the 3rd Earl of Hardwicke. The interior is a rich mixture of 18th century decoration, by the designers Gibbs, Flitcroft and Soane, with displays of fine furniture, paintings and porcelain. The Yellow Drawing Room, by Soane, is like a church nave with arches rising to a clear glass lantern above. The Great Barn has a collection of farm implements dating back 200 years. The restored garden includes a rose garden and there are extensive walks through the grounds.

Top Ten Family-Friendly Historic Houses by Abigail Flanagan

"Cambridgeshire’s largest country house; a family trail will help you uncover Wimpole’s secrets, along with its fine Georgian interiors (get the kids playing “spot the lion heads” in the Yellow Drawing Room) and servants’ quarters. Outside there’s 2,500-acres to discover, including an adventure playground… and five hidden geochaches for treasure hunters to find (hire a GPS unit at reception or use your own). Last but not least, there’s the working farm where hands-on fun is positively encouraged. Home to many rare breeds, you can take Shire horse wagon rides, collect eggs and even groom the donkeys."
