  • A nice afternoon stroll. As an English man, my idea of manor houses is somewhat grander than this. But the grounds are free to stroll in and there are some interesting information boards in the coach houses. The tea house looks nice although haven't tried it. A good place to combine with a visit to nearby Nielsen Beach.
  • Great place to have a peek at lifestyle of the previous generations. Recommend to follow the guided tour. Guide was fun and filled us in with interesting facts regarding the place and it's previous owners. Audio guide available for those that wants to self tour. Washrooms located away from the house, behind the stable. Clean. Parking available onsite. As there is a cafe next to the House, therefore parking might be a squeeze. Ample of nearby street parking though.
  • A snapshot of history and a fascinating story. The guides are really knowledgeable, the decor is beautiful and the architecture is quirky (ask the guides to show and tell). Also take a picnick - there are extensive well manicured gardens on which to spread out and enjoy the day. Lastly, if that sounds too much hassle, try a high tea in the tea rooms.
  • Beautiful historical site. Tour was informative and interesting. Guide knew his subject. Tea house is amazing in beautiful setting.
  • Beautifully restored. ..with interesting artefacts...very pleasant morning spent wandering the grounds and house
