Have visited Newstead many times. It has very special walks and gardens, not showy but joyful and always rejuvenated the soul.

The home of Lord Byron: an amazing place. The most wonderful gardens, lakes and waterfalls. Beautiful swans and ducks etc. And the house itself: incredible. Truly worth a visit.
