Woburn Abbey in Rural Bedfordshire

Woburn Abbey has been home to the wealthy Bedford family for centuries. Situated in vast surroundings of landscaped gardens populated by hundreds of deer and with an adjoining safari park, Woburn Abbey isn’t just an ordinary country home and is still under the ownership of this aristocratic family.

The house is sumptuously decorated and will take you back to a time of unparalleled wealth and comfort visited over the centuries by several English and British monarchs with a particular highlight being the bedroom that Queen Victoria stayed in with its beautiful view over the grounds.

If one great country estate is not enough for you, then we will travel onwards to Waddesdon Manor now owned by The National Trust but formerly one of the many homes of the wealthy Rothschild family, and indeed, they still take a keen interest in the running of the estate.

A little bit of Europe in Great Britain built by the might Rothschilds family.

The house is built in the style of a Renaissance Chateau and is a marvel to behold with a particularly interesting wine cellar with wines stocked from the Rothschilds estates.  The gardens are ornate with statues and fountains at every turn, and the Manor was deliberately built on a hill-top affording wonderful views of the countryside.

This room is a good example of the rich decor inside the whole of Waddesdon and many other stately homes,
