    • Perfectly preserved rococo landscape garden surrounding a neo-classical mansion. The garden was created in the mid-18th century by Sir Francis Dashwood, founder of the Dilettanti Society and the Hellfire Club. The house is one of the most Italianate and theatrical in England, its facades formed as classical temples. The interior has Palmyrene ceilings and decoration with pictures, furniture and sculpture dating from the time of Sir Francis.
