Brudenell Estates comprises of approximately 10,000 acres of land divided between Northamptonshire, known as Deene Park, and Leicestershire’s Welland Valley. The Brudenell family have carefully stewarded the House, Parkland and rural estates for over 500 years.
Deene Park is a ring fenced estate, bisected by the A43 road linking Corby to Stamford. The estate is centred on Deene Park with its medieval hall and designed landscape, gardens and parkland.
Deene Park is located in a tranquil, rural part of Northamptonshire which retains a high scenic appeal and forms an important part of the historic Rockingham Forest, one of the great Royal hunting grounds of the Midlands Counties. The parkland covers 568 acres and is included in the English Heritage register of parks and gardens of historic interest (grade 2) and is designated in the national context as a Landscape of Special Interest.
The house and parkland are nestled in the gently undulating Willow Brook valley with its ridges framed by wooded hills. The Willow Brook, a tributary of the river Nene, is dammed in a number of places to form a series of lakes in the design landscape. The predominance is agricultural land with areas of unimproved pasture running along the water courses.
