Had a very pleasant afternoon strolling( in my case rolling) around the house and grounds. I am an ambulatory wheel chair user. They are currently working on the house, replacing the heating system with a more effective and environmentally friendly one. They have boards about this dotted around the ground floor (the 1st floor is closed at present while they work on it). The house is only open to view at present between 10 and 13.30pm. Last entry is at 12.45pm. It was really interesting. My husband and myself both work for museums and it's always interesting to us to see how other places work around this sort of thing. After that we went and had a lovely lunch in the orangery, I had a delicious spiced cauliflower pasty, a marmalade cake and tea, my partner had a cheese pasty, chocolate brownie and tea.
Then we took a slow meander around the beautiful park, we saw their famous Jacob sheep and their deer. It was beautiful.
