What a fantastic hidden gem of a place, leisurely walks, historic buildings, well kept landscaping. All make for a fascinating place to visit, great if you are a national trust member but a little pricey if you are not.

Dogs welcome in grounds on leads; assistance dogs only allowed inside chapel and cafe's. Dogs are allowed in the library at the stables, which can be used to eat your cream scone and tea if it's rainy!
