This time we didn't look around the house because the grounds and formal gardens were a delight on a sunny day in May. Don't forget that if you are a member the entrance and parking is free. There is also a small restaurant serving good...More

You could easily spend a few days here. Mix of stately home and industrial site given the inventiveness of Mr Armstrong. House full of surprises, even has a sauna. Loads of walks and trails through the extensive grounds and a peaceful retreat in the walled...More

The walk from the car park to the generator house is through the Himalayan gardens which are very impressive. However the generator house is disappointing - the explanations were comprehensively from a technical perspective but failed to bring to life the context of the technological...More
