If you want to see a mostly Elizabethan stately home then you can't do better than Hardwick. It's large enough to be stately but small enough to be friendly. The amazing architecture with all that glass is awe inspiring even today and 400 years ago would have blown people's minds. There are good explanations in most rooms and if you want to know more the stewards are approachable, helpful and knowledgeable. Well worth a visit.
