  • The childhood home of The Queen Mother is well worth a visit. Very interesting history, great gardens and great restaurant. A very enjoyable day
  • Lovely time spent walking the grounds with the dogs. Popped them back on the van to enjoy a snack in the cafe (excellent traditional food and cakes). Fantastic tour guide with ghostly tall tales took us around the castle before we left.
  • Gorgeous place. Grounds well kept. Held an excellent christmas fayre.
  • Nice place, very helpful staff, good facilities including a restaurant and parking.
  • A wonderful peaceful place to visit, you have to experience it for yourself. I would go again.
