We enjoyed a lovely walk around the grounds and then played in the maze before going for a walk up to the Bear Gates. We didn’t go into the house as we had a dog with us but still had a very enjoyable day.

The house itself is fascinating and the grounds and gardens are beautiful. I would particularly like to praise the manager, the guides and the staff in the brewery/shop. All were informative and pleasant. We had afternoon tea at the cafe, top quality and reasonably priced....More

This is a review of the grounds and cafe and not the house as we had our dog with us. The woodland walks are really good with some amazing trees. We really enjoyed the challenge of the maze. There are small craft workshops. A real...More
