  • Interesting day in the cafe was rather poor.but at least they had jacket potatoes to fall back on
  • Charming place with lovely walks in the grounds. They regularly have good exhibitions too.
  • Love this place remember visting when small child then taking my son like the kitchens and walking around the park watching the deer and the wildlife on school holidays they have activities to keep the children busy
  • Lovely big venue for a walk or picnic. Very family friendly with free games and some kits to rent out. Great fun all round. Good cafe too.
  • Absolutely stunning. Went for a morning and thoroughly enjoyed it even with some sections being closed for cleaning (recommend calling ahead and seeing if everything is open). Will be planning second visit and probably a third to explore the grounds as well.
