A wide ranging collection of the most beautiful cars from all around the world kept in absolutely pristine condition. Four large, modern barns each with about 24-30 cars on display. Things of beauty, not just for petrol heads.

Enjoyed the overall experience of the motor museum. The cars are spectacular and we are not particularly interested in motors. For lunch had the best chicken tikka sandwich, and glass of wine. Very reasonably priced too. Service could not be faulted.

Set in a stunning location, my husband and the rest of our party stated that they would not have wanted to miss this. Unfortunately I am not a petrol head but could appreciate why they would say this.
