Take a wander around the marvellous Callender House in all its splendour. Free entry with visitor centre and exhibitions. Top quality high tea room. The interiors are magnificent to behold. So glad I stay only a stones throw away! Highly recommended suitable for all ages.

Excellent little excursion. Enjoyed eating in the tearoom. Good choice on menu and excellent, friendly service. Plenty of visitors enjoying afternoon tea in the restaurant and generally having a good time. Small exhibitions of interest. A good place to visit and it’s free.
