Sadly we arrived too late to see the house, but the gardens were really well cared for, we especially enjoyed the kitchen garden. The staff were welcoming. We had nice and not expensive cream tea in cafe. Hope to visit again.

On our way to Mareham-le-Fen, and saw this wonderful building in the distance dominating the skyline. Plenty of activities for all ages, including Garden Walks, Tour of the Castle, Payground, and woodland walks. Prices very reasonable.
