Attended a Halloween event on a Saturday night at the House. Very atmospheric with small oil burner lights providing light to the dark drive leading up to the House itself. Good show put on for us and very informative in the history surrounding the past...More
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.

We had afternoon tea at the cafe, top quality and reasonably priced....More
