Audley End is a palace in all but name. Fittingly, the 1st Earl of Suffolk, who finished rebuilding the house in 1614, hoped to entice royalty up the pretty drive that now passes over 'Capability' Brown's man-made lake. But after being accused of embezzling money from the exchequer he fell from royal favour.
Today, Audley End fizzes with life - from the working kitchens to the productive gardens to the popular children's play area to the historic stables, where three rescue horses, Duke, Jack and Captain live the good life.
Cambridge Lodge is a Victorian gate house built in 1842 at the entrance to the property. It sleeps four, with a lovely sitting room, fully equipped kitchen and separate dining room. It looks over the River Cam.
Relax on Audley End's Capability Brown-designed lawns and have your own summer picnic once the last visitor has disappeared. This is one of England's grandest stately homes, with so much to do and see that staying overnight is eminently sensible.
