  • Lovely old stately pile. Lovingly rebuilt by the local council with lottery funds. A popular wedding venue also offers a tea room and nice views from the cliffs.
  • Interesting tourist attraction with a decent tea shop that's convenient while walking on the coastal path. We enjoyed our visit.
  • Beautiful location, tea rooms are currently being redone but you can still get a cuppa from a mobile caravan but it does mean you have to sit outside. Access to the beach but very steep steps. It looks out to the isle of Wight and hegisburgh head
  • Awesome place. Had our wedding there and they were so good with everything!
  • Beautiful garden and beach, couldn't see this inside because of a wedding but would surely go back, cream tea simple and delicious.
