I went to A Dog Day Out in a place that normally doesn't allow dogs! An organised event. Liked it a lot but why not dog friendly? Would like to visit again, we'll see.

Kids love the sand put and the many hens. We miss the animal of old, bring back the sheep and pigs. The Teddy bear picnic is well worth seeking out with hound kids

Beautiful Marble Sculptures, the house was ok and you had to take a tour. The guide was not great, but I wanted to see the Sculptures. The garden was beautiful and a very nice walk.
