  • A must visit for any Bloombury Group fans. We were lucky and visited on a gloriously sunny day. Its not a big place, but book one of the tours and enjoy a quick meal there too.

  • This must be the most beautiful and inspirational house in England. Visited on a sunny day in June. The gardens were magnificant, a tangle of great pink cabbage roses, daisies and too many traditional country garden flowers to list. But the house....breathtaking , and for anyone interested in design, life changing ! Absolutely fabulous. My only complaint - the tour was rushed - an hour is just not long enough. And visit the farm & the church.
