Architectural gem in beautiful English Countryside. This old mansion was home of Lord Melbourne, British leader who was namesake of Melbourne Australia. Grounds include small village and quaint gift shops and small lake with large population of Canadian Geese and mallards.

A great place to enjoy a cup of tea and sandwiches or cake, especially if it's warm enough to sit outside.Staff are always friendly whenever I've visited. Like the fact that it's waitress service too...no queuing at a counter and struggling with trays.
