“great grounds”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Even in the middle of summer there was hardly anyone here when other gardens / attractions would be heaving. If you like discovering old gardens then this is a great place.

The welcome from the lady on reception couldn't have been better, very enthusiastic and informative. We set off on some of the trails which admittedly aren't brilliantly way marked but its pretty hard to get lost. The gardens are interesting if lacking in interpretation and the lily pond is worth the walk. We managed one walk in the morning and one in the afternoon with lunch in between so its easy to spend the best part of a day here.

Fun things for kids to do include the small play area and tree climbing.

The service at the cafe was good and the food excellent.

The hall isn't open which is a real shame and also it would have been great to learn more about its history and the lives of those that had lived here.

“wedding weekend”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

4/5/6th july 2014 -What a wonderful weekend and a wonderful venue for the wedding of my daughter .The grounds were beautiful and our rooms in the courtyard was excellent . The staff were so welcoming and friendly ,very warm and nothing was too much trouble for them. This helped all of us relax as a 100 ( about 50 from each side) enjoyed a barbecue friday evening and a busy bar with more friendly and smiling service late into the night on both friday and saturday . The wedding breakfast on saturday was a culinary triumph with wonderful starters and puddings and the most beautiful pork loin which melted in your mouth and surrounded by delicious gratin dauphinoise withlovely fresh veg etc and extra crackling !! (Thanks ) . The salmon was perfect and the veggie dish a real treat so i must especially congratulate Heiko ,the headchef and his team for all their efforts.You will not be disappointed for they are very good and believe me I have dined in many top restaurants worldwide and the quality for a large party such as ours was first class.
To Shirley who was the main contact for the booking,and Jayne and Shelley , to James who led the team on both nights and Dave and colleagues on the bar and all the lovely girls, Gertie ,Jasmine,Beth ,Kate,Kate ,and all the others who made our stay so enjoyable,our many thanks.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

The gardens of this stunning little setting are wonderful.
The shop has many lovely things and the afternoon tea was wonderful
Fabulous walks for dogs and they were made very welcome - bowls of water, bones and rawhide chews are available with afternoon tea.
The outside of the house is equally picturesque.
A must for anyone visiting the area

“What a Superb Find”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

This beautiful hall is tucked away in the middle of nowhere and completely off the beaten track. The gardens are incredible even so early in the year. Leave them for a few more weeks and there will be an amazing display of rhododendrons.

Entrance fee is only £3.00 and car parking all day costs £2.50

The cafe serves a superb 'Welsh High Tea' for £12.00 but it feeds 2 people and is delicious.

Highly recommend a visit !
