Mary Budden Estate is a very toned-down escape into the rawest form of serenity and peace. It is named in memory of its last known inhabitant in the 19th-century, Ms Mary Budden. The Budden Estate is completely wrapped up in wooden interiors that feel cosy and look quite appealing. In the months of snow, the entire estate simply shimmers in glittery white snow, almost feels like painting right out of the canvas!
