Long Description:
The National Trust describe this fantastic location:

'Breathtakingly beautiful landscape gardens

* Discover a garden full of mystery and hidden meanings
* Explore more than 40 monuments, temples and secret corners
* Experience the breathtaking beauty of ornamental lakes, wooded valleys and spectacular views
* Enjoy miles of walks and trails through the gardens and surrounding parkland

Whenever we visit we can't get away, but end up walking round and round gasping in awe at the surprises awaiting round every corner, glimpsing a distant temple and wanting to investigate. Sounds a bit like waymarking.
