A hunting lodge in a deer park
Sinai was too small to be a proper country house, but it was in a deer park, so the Paget Family used it as their hunting lodge.
Because some of the hunting and shooting guests were celebrities like the Earl of Essex, the Pagets joined the Medieval buildings together in 1605 to create a building that was designed to look like a Medieval great hall. A very posh, very old fake, like all the rest of the extensions and additions that make Sinai what it is.
The historic parkland surrounding Sinai Park House is located on a scarp overlooking Burton on Trent and the Trent Valley. The woodland is planted in two parts – Shobnall Wood to the north and the Rough to the south.
