  • The grounds and the house are 5 star... Well worth a visit and walk around the estate, gardens, etc... However, the cafe could improve it's service...

  • Lovely, scenic venue to commemorate your big day. Hidden away in surprisingly, Enfield. Venue big enough for a "small" event. Parking separate from public carpark. It is also a lovely place to take your family on a nature walk, or a picnic.
