The palace and grounds were lovely, the garden was beautiful, and the volunteers are proud of the property that they watch over. Walk around the small town, especially if you're an Outlander fan!

The palace is small enough to feel homely. Information is available in the rooms and staf are on hand to answer any queries. Well maintained gardens and for tennis lovers the oldest tennis court in Britain. Enjoyed the visit.
