We come here quite regularly as it's local to us and has a good cafe and shop. The house is nice to walk around and so are the grounds. Helpful and informative room guides and volunteers.

This is a great place to visit and if you enjoy walking then it's a must. Kids love walking around here but take care if you not a confident walker. This is a great place to visit in the summer.
