I loved this "House" it is more of a castle of course. There was of course so much to see...old pictures, paintings, ornate dishes and a bell for every room for the wait staff. The grounds were gorgeous and the tea was delightful!

Gorgeous is the only word to describe this gem, lovely people in absolutely beautiful surroundings. Climb the 92 steps to the roof the view is astounding. Food in the cafe is delicious. Will definitely be back.
