    I last reviewed this place a year ago. Once again the cakes, scones coffee etc were very nice, however what let the side down this time was the service which was very slow. At one point the staff were...  more »

  • We visited the barns for a Halloween event - it was fantastic. £8 admission for the little one, we were both free. The staff and entertainment were fantastic. Story telling, puppet theatre, live music, treasure hunts, face painting.... all for free (after the admission price). The gardens are immaculately kept and the barns are lovely (and extremely old)! We can't wait until our next visit!
  • Temple at War .an amazing day out.Takes you back in time.see you next year.
  • Fantastic place. Take a picnic. Forget the kids.
  • Visited Father Christmas here and the experience was amazing. Great staff, wonderful setting, truly magical. Definitely the best we've been to in the area, and very reasonable cost too!
  • The place itself is interesting due to the two well-preserved thirteenth century barns and the knowledgeable guides who will tell you about the history of the site. However, the most interesting thing to do is come here for one of their events — a wide range of activities from mediaeval reenactments and craft fairs to courses on everything from picture framing to clay oven making. Check their website for details of what is going on.
