We went following a recommendation and we had a wonderful visit! There is ample parking, a sense of space and peacefulness with nice views. The road leading to it is not the best particularly when you go past the church. We I initially went to the farm where there was also a gift shop and tea room amongst others. The... More

Spent a lovely afternoon here with family. Grandchildren were on their bikes & it was a nice safe area for them to enjoy the space & fresh air. There is plenty of free parking, flower gardens, tea room, farm animals, mansion house & beautiful views across the estate. There is a fee for the animal farm & mansion house or... More

This was our first visit to the house for many years, and though we primarily went to walk in the grounds, we also took the opportunity to visit the house in what is it's closed season. We started our visit in the tea room, where we enjoyed delicious cakes, scones and biscuits, along with coffee. The walk was very pleasant,... More

This is only a few miles away from my home. We have been hundreds of times as a couple and with the grandchildren. Spring, summer, autumn or winter it is great with an ever changing landscape. The children love the little farm zoo. I like the azaleas in springtime, which are awesome. The house itself is beautiful and well worth... More

The best thing about this location is that it's free. You can use the play area and walk around the gardens for nothing, and the play area is pretty good. You can pay the optional fee to walk around the farm which for young children can be fun and has the usual assortment of farm animals, cows, goats sheep etc.... More

Well worth a visit to kill an hour or two. Probably nicer in summer than in winter. Would be nice to see the gardens in full bloom.
