IMG_1065Located between the towns of Antony and Torpoint, Cornwall, the Carew family have owned Antony estate since the mid 16th Century, with the House being built in 1721 – it has been the primary residence of the family since then.  The estate has been the location for various films including Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, 2008.
