Cowdray Park House has been owned by the Pearson family since 1909 when it was purchased by the engineer and oil industrialist Sir Weetman Dickinson Pearson.    

Lady Marina and her husband Michael Pearson inherited Cowdray Estate, which includes 120 acres of garden, a 22-bedroom house and dozens of staff, in 1995.

The impressive 44,000 sq ft home also boasts indoor and outdoor swimming pools, wine cellars, tennis courts and even a bowling alley.

In addition there is 110 acres of parkland including pony paddocks and stables, a group of cottages, landscaped gardens, a cricket pitch and two lakes. 

Although Lady Marina and her husband considered selling the large country house in 2009 for £25million, the couple eventually decided to transform the property into a luxury venue for weddings and events.

Lady Marina also made Cowdray into a wellness centre to help locals find the same benefits from meditation as she did.
