The announcement said: “We've had a band staying for the last month recording an album.

"Musicians love the acoustics in the Great Hall and Drawing room, with their huge vaulted ceilings.

"Being serenaded while watering and weeding the garden, listening to the double bass, drums and piano wafting out of the open double doors, was pretty nice. Thank you Arctic Monkeys."
