Kimberly enjoyed a wander through Holker’s gardens and grounds as well as touring the public rooms of the 400-year-old hall itself.
She then enjoyed a three course meal in The Ilex Brasserie with food cooked using fresh ingredients and produce from the kitchen gardens.
Speaking of her visit, Kimberly said: “The gardens are absolutely phenomenal, just gorgeous.
“The main hall is really beautiful. There’s lots of history, lots of really beautiful furniture and intricate details.
“And in the restaurant, I was surprised at how really good the food was. Amazing, absolutely beautiful.”
She added: “A really big thank you to Holker Hall for hosting us for the afternoon.”
