  • Beautiful home and gardens. The self guided tour was both informative and enjoyable. We were a group of 14 celebrating family birthday and were fortunate to rent the Hope Wing for the weekend. Ages ranged from 12 to 84. Everyone had a great time. Well worth a visit and if you are looking for a special place for a group stay this is both unique and good value
  • Lovely grounds and house, we went during the Christmas fayre that was on, which was smaller than anticipated but the stall owners were pleasant enough. The house itself has plenty information to listen to and read, and the staff were very knowledgelable, and the grounds (although we never got a full walk around due to ice and snow) looked to be well maintained and a good walk. The cafe was also good and we're very accommodating as there was a large group of us, we only had tea and cake but the meals going out looked great. Worth a visit if your in the area
