  • Fantastic place to visit with a history to match. Also had a restaurant where the food is always superb. Highly recommend..
  • Found for the money it was over really quickly. House is lovely but not that time consuming. Garden was covered in no time
  • Nice house and gardens, You need only an hour to look round. They do a very nice Cream tea. Would recommend.
