Stanford Estate

Built in the time of William and Mary, the Hall is surrounded by ancient parkland rich in natural history and beauty and a further 900 acres. Avenues of established, majestic trees radiate in all directions from the Hall, most prominently the North Avenue which stretches as far as the eye can see. Woodland, ridge and furrow pasture and ancient remains of buildings of a previous age and the beautiful enclosed rose garden nurture an atmosphere of profound tranquillity and peace. The park has been designated as a site of special scientific interest for its collection of rare lichen that grows in abundance.
