I didn't know there was no house to see, so I was a bit puzzled at the garden there. Thanks to the very interesting talk by a member of staff, I could appreciate the history and the beautiful gardens with the fanstastic sculptures.

Very glad I did not skip this one... despite the building being lost to time 260+ years ago, there is so much to see here, especially the beautiful gardens and bronze sculptures.

You do have to pay to get into the attraction, but it is worth the money. If you purchase one of the three-attraction day passes, the New House can be one of your attractions. It's a really cool artistic interpretation of... More
