  • Lovely little estate to walk around, plenty to see with plenty of different aspects plus a lovely little river. Pleasant staff and a well presented cafe
  • Lovely house and gardens. Fantastic Sunday lunch, polite and helpful staff.
  • Really nice place to visit. What I liked most is the fact you can take photos and sit on the furniture in the great hall. The gardens were also beautiful, although sadly it rained, so I didn't get the chance to fully explore them
  • What a fantastic house. The restaurant is lovely with delicious food.
  • Very welcoming staff, fine house amd beautiful garden.
