PLUS, IF YOU’RE AC­COM­PA­NIED BY MINIA­TURE EX­PLOR­ERS, THE WOOD­LAND PRO­VIDES PLENTY OF DEN-BUILD­ING AP­PA­RA­TUS AND THE OP­POR­TU­NITY TO GLIMPSE A VAST AR­RAY OF WILDLIFE, IN­CLUD­ING DEER, BIRDS AND TOADS. WHEN YOU’VE WORKED UP AN AP­PETITE, STOP FOR A PIC­NIC AMONG GRAZ­ING SHEEP IN THE WALLED GAR­DEN – WITH THE EARL’S SUM­MER­HOUSE AS YOUR BACK­DROP (na­tion­al­trust.org.uk).
