Not a massive property and the house itself isn't that impressive, but the story is a good one. The grounds are lovely and the house itself is beautiful from the outside. Well worth an hour if in the area. Also a second hand book store...More

Terrific grounds with well manicured lawn and excellent gardens. The house itself is interesting (albeit limited) especially the wood carvings and the three legged chair. The outdoor area for the cafe is indeed very pleasant - the service slow and actually very painful. We think...More

It was raining when we visited so we concentrated on the church and the house, both of which were lovely. As we went round the Hall we followed the story of the life of Mary Clementina Benthall who saved it from demolition. The church was...More

Drove quite a way to get here and when we arrived was very disappointed. The house to me was not very interesting and there is not a great deal to see, the walled garden was empty, it just looked a very uncared for house.
