  • Visited today there was very little access to the building or church also there was a photo on so it limited access even further as for ghosts not to sure it has got some dark spots but nothing creepy could be due to the heat today w I'll ll return and hopefully will be able to explore more freely
  • Fascinated place to see. Great to see renovation under way. It needs finance to help to bring it back to its former glory.
  • We visited the house and gardens on the off chance whilst staying in the area. We arrived to find it closed but when we approached some people who were working on the gardens we were invited to look around. Hollie and her children gave us a personal tour of the old ruins, the chapel and the grounds telling us much about the history. It really is a labour of love for all those involved in bringing life back to the old estate. Please take time to visit and support their excellent work!
  • Open for heritage open days. Really friendly volunteers, more buildings than I expected and refreshments available! Shame it's such a big project...
  • Closed till September but will check it out properly when it’s open ! Needs to have better opening info on the site or google page
