The 1987 film The Living Daylights saw the debut of actor Timothy Dalton in the role of James Bond, pictured, and a major sequence featuring an MI6 safe-house was shot at Stonor Park, an 850-year-old country house in the Chilterns, north of Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshir­e. The estate features Italianate gardens, a 12th-century chapel, a café, visitor centre and gift shop.

Its latest venture is an adventure playground for four to 12-year-olds, called Tumbleston­e Hollow, where boulders recreate Stonor’s original ancient stone circle, giving the sense the play area was always in the woods.

High-level walkways, climbing nets and bridges connect through a quirky central tower. There’s even a new children’s book to go with it, The Legend of Tumbleston­e Hollow, about magical characters. And in June two shepherd’s huts will open for luxury sleepovers. Book playground tickets for up to three hours via stonor.com. Prices from £6.50 for adults and older children (£8.50 peak), younger children from £4.50 (£6.50 peak).
