  • Absolutely worth a visit! Need about an hour and a half to meander around and get the full effect of this beautiful historic estate.  more »
  • Such a wonderful estate in which to wander. We chose to visit when the spring flowers were at their best. It would be a wonderful place to visit when the autumn trees are changing as well. Make sure.....  more »

  • Nice garden to walk around. Thumbs up for the volunteers to keep the place running. Especially the ladies at Tea room. I felt their love in my iced coffee ❤ Thank you.
  • Stunning gardens and loverly Art Deco house, hidden at the back of Leura, without tourist masses. Not expensive (not sure why some are saying it is). Great for kids too
