Beyond the public face seen by the tens of thousands who visit Althorp each year, the Althorp Estate extends much further - covering 13,000 acres of beautiful countryside in Northamptonshire, Warwickshire and Norfolk.
The Estate encompasses cottages, farms, woodlands and villages, which combine to give a rich mix of landscapes, habitats and activities.
The management of the Estate seeks to balance commercially based activity, with good stewardship of the landscape, wildlife conservation and a recognition that the countryside is increasingly used for leisure, recreation and sport. The aim is to promote a thriving rural environment, which makes a positive contribution to the local economy.
The management team is based at Althorp and covers a range of disciplines including property letting, forestry, farming, accountancy, maintenance, events, marketing, housekeeping, gardening and gamekeeping.
