The grounds to this old house are beautiful. Well worth a visit for a stunning walk. The house is very nice and more unrestricted than similar buildings. The lady giving the tour was lovely and gave my child pictures to draw and colour. The cafe...More

Toured around this classical style mansion which a very knowledgeable guide. Needs time to appreciate the décor and all that has been done to restore it to what you see today. Outside areas are extensive.

Lovely spot for a day out. Great crowd there today but the toilets were a disgrace. Filthy dirty and smelly, overflowing bins and no soap. A visit by a health inspector should sort them out.
