The National Trust-owned Blickling Estate is comprised of the grand country house, built on the ruins of an older property in the early 17th century, and its extensive grounds that includes 500 acres of woodland, 450 acres parkland and 3,500 acres of farmland.
The woodland is dotted with clusters of pretty snowdrops at the end of winter, the perfect accompaniments for a tranquil walk.
