About the Estate
The private estate is run by Robert, Ian and Clare Mainwaring. They rear cattle, sheep and pigs on their 2,000-acre farm. The estate has remained in the same family since the 1500s and has undergone a few reincarnations in that time, from being a lavish country house to a hospital camp in the War. One of the most notable ancestors was Sir Francis Kynaston, who was acquainted with both James I and Charles I. The historic estate is now home to two stunning herds of native breeds of British cattle – Beef Shorthorn and Highland, a small flock of sheep and some pigs.
