Such a beautiful place to visit. The houses is wonderful. Love the ceilings and Gothic style architecture. The gardens are stunning and there is a lovely walled kitchen garden. Well worth a visit. Will definitely be visiting again, I loved it.

This is a National Trust property. The house is a very interesting Victorian Gothic creation with much to see. There is a walled vegetable garden and many walks in the grounds. There is also a stables cafe and shop. We really enjoyed our visit.

I have been here a number of times to walk the dog in the huge woods. I have yet to visit the house, but still find it a lovely day out. Nice little cafe and shop too.

The pay barrier is in the stable block, near the shop and cafe, between the main car park and the house. There is a car park just on the left inside the estate entrance, which is perfect for walking in the park, so you can... More

The cafe is in the old stable block. One way in takes you through the pay barrier, but the cafe courtyard is open from the other side, so you can just walk round the building to get into the courtyard and cafe. It's a... More
