A family consisting of a mum, dad, teenage daughter, young boy and girl relax on the South Lawn with the South Facade of the castle in the background. A young couple are also strolling through the gardens behind them. The family appear to be happily chatting away in the summer sun and the sky is blue with only a hint of clouds. The heavy sunshine casts dark shadows on the grass nearby as the rays hit a nearby mature tree.
