Let them eat cake at this sprawling 16th - century stately home, often dubbed the 'English Versailles'.

It's so French in fact that producers chose it as one of the key settings for the movie Les Miserrables, starring Russel Crowe, Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway. Marry underneath the intracately painted ceiling of the Great Hall, or al fresco in the Colonnade, before partying in a stunning marquee pitched on the Great Court lawn.

There's also a picturesque lily pond, a rose garden and walled orchard, as well as modern-art sculptures - so no end of photo ops!
