This medieval house within a lovely estate is well worth a visit. It is a National Trust property. Lovely gardens (well stocked kitchen garden).

We came here with our two young children and had a lovely few hours. The gardens especially the rock garden, are lovely and the cafe/shop area is good. We’d definitely go back to spend more time there.

Very good gardens, the highlight was the kitchen garden well laid out and an inspiration to any allotment holder.
