Mansfield Park is an 18th century English country house located in Northamptonshire.  It is said by some to be based on the real Cottesbrooke Hall, although this is disputed.

During the earlier part of the Georgian period (between 1740 and 1800), various architectural styles were in vogue, including the Palladian style and the Neoclassical style. Examples of houses built in these styles are Holkham Hall in Norfolk, Clandon Park in Surrey,  Syon House in Middlesex and Kedleston Hall in Derbyshire.

These are particularly grand examples, and Jane Austen probably had a slightly less majestic house in mind when she created the fictional Mansfield Park.
