  • 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.
  • Beautiful house and gardens, great for an afternoon trip. The restaurant is better than average, but could be improved. Overall very good.
  • Quiet and peaceful by the river. Dog friendly even to eat with them. Food freshly cooked and delicious. Excellent carvery on Sunday. Old house atmospheric.
