The English countryside is world renowned for its magnificent stately homes, built by the wealthy and the aristocracy as their country residences following the demise in popularity of castles during the 1500s, when comfort rather than defence became a priority. They represent a bygone era of luxury and nobility, created as a status symbol for some of the greatest families in Britain of the time.
The creation of stately homes reached a peak during the 16th and 17th centuries, particularly under the reign of Elizabeth I when the famous estates of Brocket Hall, Burghley, Chatsworth and Longleat were built in decadent style. These properties were used to entertain their esteemed guests, including nobility, aristocracy and wealthy landowners, providing much needed respite from city living.
Stately homes were created in large estates, with their residents using the land for hunting and other pursuits. The grounds nearest the house were immaculately tended with beautiful landscaped gardens and formal terraces, and often benefited from croquet lawns for summer games.
