We visited on the 10th June. We really enjoyed it , we paid €5 for visiting the grounds....it's a bit ramshackle but it's charming . It has a lovely tea shop with tables and chairs outside with all sorts of hens and dogs warnering about.

Really interesting gardens in process of being fully restored. Much potential realised thus far. Quirky in places but overall very pleasant indeed. Excellent toot in the shop (i speak as expert surveyor) & giant pot of tea to be had too. When we later mentioned...More
