  • Large parkland gardens and a beautiful terrace garden. Plenty of features for young children to enjoy themselves - adventure playground, pirate ship, etc. The house is quite limited with only one part open for visiting, but this holds a large collection of "stuff". The tea room looks good and other members of our group commented on the quality of the salad. Nice walks around the lake to the waterfall and temple.
  • Beautiful old house set in beautiful large gardens. Large play area, suitable for children upto teens.Plenty of benches and space for a picnic next to play area, so you can keep an eye on your kids. Nice walks around gardens and lake, even a lovely little grotto and waterfall. They hold plenty of events, music shows, dog events, car days. Worth a visit, would recommend.
