The house is fabulous to visit. It shows how the other have lived in the 1900's. Our guide Moira who is working only part time was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. A must visit

The home and grounds are just lovely. The guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. The gardens are worth seeing and perhaps a buggy ride around the grounds, as well. Many photos opportunities on the grounds.
