It sounds like something straight out of an Austen novel – spend the day touring charming gardens; enjoy a delicious picnic lunch, served beside an artificial lake. Given most of us live on quarter acre blocks, it’s difficult to grasp the excitement gardens generated in Austen’s day.

No flights or time machines required – though you will feel like you’ve been transported to another era.
