I walked up here just yesterday when the weather was beautiful. the views are spectacular if you can handle the sharp incline. it's not an easy walk, but very short and straight up hill, no undoubtedly worth the view.

We were pleased to come across the Dashwood Mausoleum and the Church. Often go for tea and cakes there on a Sunday in the summer.

I have a specialist interest in gardens and houses/villas of this and earlier periods in UK and Europe. But, comparatively, this one is spectacular. Sir Francis Dashwood (C 18) was both rich and cultivated. And he was a very naughty man.His knowledge of the Italian...More

The property is owned by the National Trust and so it is unlikely that you can fly a drone and you would certainly need their permission as members of the public frequent the house and grounds.
