  • Went on a Saturday, which is apparently an "open" day. A portion on the grounds was closed for a wedding, which we expected, so no biggie. There are no gardens whatsoever. Just some grass, trees, a dirt road, a small area with some flowers, and what looks to be a overgrown, neglected patch of something or other. Also, the museum was closed with no one on the grounds that appeared to work there. The main house is in desperate need of a face lift! Sad!
  • Beautiful grounds and estate - a nice refuge at the end of a residential development with ample historical interest.
  • This place was awesome, and not crowded at all. I recommend it if you have the time.
  • Jane Austen tea was a delight.
  • Beautiful gardens and the staff are great
