Burghley House has it all. Its just off the A1 so nice and easy to find. The gardens (where the deer roam) are extensive and beautiful so you can just park up under the trees and have a long walk and a picnic for free. If you want to explore a little further (and this is great for the little one) they also have The Gardens of Suprise which is essentially a water adventure garden where the kids can run around and get wet. The Sculpture Gardens are stunningly beautiful with hidden copses and sculptures dotted here and there. A nice walk along the river, and a truly stunning boathouse. You pay to get into the Scupture & Water Gardens (approx. £8 per adult but discounted if you're a 'friend of Burghley'). Burghley House itself is a definite winner if you like wandering round stately homes. The audio tour is great, really interesting. I believe it's around £12 per person to do the house tour. If all that isn't enough for you there is also a cafe and small gift shop in the grounds and a lovely (but expensive) restaurant called The Orangery. Well worth a visit and a really good FULL day out for all the family.
