We visited on the October open day and had the guided tour. We found this excellent, interesting and enjoyable. If going I would definitely recommend visiting on a day when the tours take place.

We visit here every once and a while. It’s nice here. Either for educational reasons, for a cuppa or for a lovely walk like we do. Peaceful. Relaxing. Worth a visit. You may even see a seal.
