Hunstrete House in Hunstrete, Somerset is now used as one of Home Grown Hotel’s ‘restaurants with rooms’. Mansions and country estates as single-household residences are not as yet a thing of the past however and account for more of the acres of the United Kingdom than is commonly supposed. Ten of the fifty companies owning over 1 million acres of England and Wales are aristocratic estates. Changes in the use of land and the built environment will require changes in their ownership and control.
