Home to the Brackenbury family, this redbrick early Tudor house sits in south Nottinghamshire, where it has played host to a number of distinguished residents over the years. Built by Sir William Pierrepont in 1500, with period lodgings, a carved Charles I staircase and fine courtyard, the house plays host to dramas and historical films, and is ours to photograph for this day.

- Plenty of time in both the house, courtyard and garden to shoot at leisure
- Skills building elements- Use of flash and reflectors to add control to interior contrast

The gardens here are stunning, and there should be plenty to allow you to create memorable garden and landscape studies.
