Called here on the way back from Sunday lunch at a local pub. A few interested people there even though it was the weekend. I suspect the interior is a dangerous zone due to restrictive fence. Must have been a very grand home when first...More

I was dissapointed to find this building fenced off. When visiting in the past it has been possible to walk through the building seeing the layout of the rooms and floors. No notice was posted so it was a wasted trip.

Absolutely gorgeous surroundings and view. Clean, well kept and a historical beauty. Great for an afternoon out and a walk around. Small car park.

It was a real shame to see it just being a shell of a building. I really wanted to go inside of the building and photograph it but understandably it's just too fragile and the fences around it symbolised this. There wasn't much to see...More
