  1. I remember visiting Wimpole many years ago, when our kids were young. Do they still have a Rare Breeds farm there?

    1. It does post a rare breed farm, Mark but we were a bit disappointed with that part of the Estate really. It has plenty of good reviews on TripAdvisor so maybe we went at a bad time. There were plenty of pens with various pigs in them but most of the cows were out of sight in some sort of building at the back of the farm. You could hear them but not see them. The Shire horses where in the stables and you could only see their rear ends and tails and we saw just one goat that was well hidden in a barn and ftwo white cows and that was that.

    1. It was big but you couldn't go in and it seemed to house mainly tomato plants, Sue

  3. Wow! Such a huge garden! The trees look so tall and huge too! It must be there for years! How old is this place?

    1. They started building the house on Wimpole Estate in 1640, Malar. The oldest trees in the garden would probably have been planted around the mid 1700s.

    1. You can't trust anyone can you? Our pond idea started as something dustbin lid sized and was upsized but not to THAT extent. If only!
