Lovely selection of food sellers, beautiful plants and really good food for sale in the courtyard. The glorious sunshine really showed off the beautiful setting at it's finest.

This house is well worth a visit. The building is a mixture of styles of different ages and the contents, in the area open to view, are fascinating. The guide is well-informed and has a lot of interesting historical anecdotes. Visits are restricted to spring/summer...More
