Holker Hall or Castle Howard--which grand estate/garden experience?

We will be in the Lake District for part of our trip and later in York.
I'd like to tour a grand estate, really am more interested in the gardens than the building, though often the artwork is an attraction.

I'd appreciate suggestions, tips. Thanks.

I haven't been to Holker Hall, and looking at their website I don't think I want to.
Castle Howard is sublimely grand, known more so for its landscape setting than formal gardens.
