  • Today was blissful. Sunshine, scenery and the beautiful Ionic Temple. Guide was very knowledge and passionate about the place. Walk back through the small wooded trail led us to a game of Quoits, Chess and Giant Jenga which is fab for kids and "big" kids alike.
  • The atmosphere at the Terrace is amazing. There is a calmness about the place that you very rarely find outside religious sites. The openness of the lawns and the viewpoints cut between the trees mean that wherever you wander you have a gentle blend of long views across the valley and the feeling of being in my own back garden. Everything is very well looked after, with enough staff to help bring the history of the place to life without being intrusive. The more modern buildings are carefully concealed behind the trees, giving visitors easy access to the shop and lavatories without disturbing the feel of the place.
